F failure

An IVF failure can cause a flood of emotions. You felt both anticipation and build excitement about the future. Will it work? You and your partner might feel anger or grief if a cycle is broken. What happened? Is it the fault of someone else that IVF failed? Do you need to try again?

While it is normal to feel hurt and be sad, try not to blame your partner or yourself. There is a good chance that the failure was not caused by anything you can control. Your fertility specialist can explain what happened and what you should do. These are the most common reasons an IVF cycle might fail.

Quality of Embryo

A poor-quality embryo is the main reason IVF cycles fail. Many embryos fail to implant after they have been transferred to the uterus. This is because they are defective in some way. Even embryos that appear good in the laboratory may be unable to implant because of defects. It’s almost never because your uterus is not healthy enough to carry a child. The embryo won’t grow properly and it doesn’t get implanted.

Age of the Eggs

The age of the eggs, when it comes to IVF treatment, is more important than that of the woman receiving IVF treatment. As a woman gets older, the quality and quantity of her eggs (known as her ovarian reserve) decreases. IVF success rates will also be affected by this. Only 25% of embryos that are transferred to IVF result in live births. This depends on the age and gender of the mother’s eggs. The implantation rate for women under 35 who use their eggs for IVF is approximately 45 %. Only 15% of women 40-42 years old who use their own eggs for IVF have a chance of implantation.

Donor eggs from younger women are used by older women to achieve IVF success rates that are almost the same as for younger women. Healthy embryos require healthy eggs. Younger eggs are more likely to be of good quality.

Ovarian Response

Sometimes, a woman’s fertility medication doesn’t work enough to produce enough eggs. A woman who is older than 37 years old or has a higher FSH level may not be able to produce enough eggs for screening and possible implantation. If this happens, the chances of IVF failing are greater. Your reproductive endocrinologist can evaluate the situation and make adjustments to your fertility medication for the next IVF cycle.

Chromosomal issues

IVF failure can be attributed to chromosomal abnormalities. This applies to all embryos of human origin, regardless of whether they were created in an embryology laboratory or naturally. These abnormalities are responsible for most miscarriages and failures to implant IVF cycles. Studies show that chromosomal abnormalities begin to occur in women as they age. This is evident from studies. 75% of women’s eggs are affected by chromosomal abnormalities in their middle 40s. As he gets older, sperm from men develops more chromosomal abnormalities than those of women. Although it seems unfair to women, it is true.

Your fertility specialist might recommend pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) if you have had a failed IVF cycle. PGS is a test that takes a small number of cells from an embryo in order to determine the correct number. Is it better to have an experienced reproductive endocrinologist who has a track record or one of the young doctors in fellowship training, who might be on the cutting edge? How successful is the practice with women your age? Is the lab reputable and has an experienced staff? Are you confident that your doctor will listen to your concerns and address them? Be honest with yourself and your partner before you decide to go through another IVF cycle.

Lifestyle Factors

Many fertility clinics require that women quit smoking for at least three months prior to starting IVF treatment. Smokers need twice the number of IVF cycles and are more likely to miscarry than those who don’t smoke. IVF success rates for women who are overweight or obese are lower. Keep your weight under control. You can get pregnant if you lose even 10 percent of your excess weight.


After an unsuccessful IVF, it is important to grieve. Even if there was no embryo, the emotional impact can be as devastating as the loss of a baby. It’s normal to feel sadness and depression. This is normal. However, you should speak to your doctor. Before you can move forward with your treatment, both you and your partner should seek support. These options are available to help you decide what the next steps should be.

Another attempt with our Medical Experts to determine if any adjustments need to be made to your IVF cycle. Successful IVF may require multiple attempts. PGT (a Genetic Testing) may be indicated depending on the reasons for previous failed IVF.

  • Third-party donor Women who have insufficient or non-viable eggs donor eggs. This could be the solution. Donors undergo thorough screening and are not over 30, to ensure that their eggs are healthy.
  • Surrogacy For whatever reason, some women are unable to carry a fertilized embryo until it is fully developed. This can lead to the embryo not implanting or multiple miscarriages even after IVF success. Surrogates are not directly related to the embryo. This is all for you and your partner. She is just a Gestational carrier. Many couples choose to partner with a friend or family member with who they share a common bond. Some choose from surrogates found through advertisements. After your surrogate has been selected, she will be subject to both a comprehensive psychological and medical exam.
