(My first cycle of IVF failed. What should I do next?): IVF is a process of becoming pregnant by artificial means where fertilization takes place in a laboratory with the aid of assisted reproductive technology. It is an intricate process in which the woman has to undergo a stressful and time-consuming treatment, which demands a lot of patience and emotional resilience from the side of the patient undergoing the treatment. And when the patient fails to achieve the desired results, they experience the overwhelming emotions of sadness, disappointment, and frustration. However, they have no option but to accept the failure and give themselves some time to get over the dreadful experience.
If you’re one of the women who have experienced failure in their first IVF cycle, sometimes it happens that the treatment may prove to be successful in the second or third attempt. That being said, IVF may not be successful even after several attempts as some causes cannot be corrected, but can be identified to make an improved attempt to increase the chances of IVF treatment resulting in pregnancy.
