Fertility Topics Explained from the Experts at SFS
The objective with In Vitro Fertilization is to consistently transfer competent embryos into a receptive uterine environment. This requires a very individualized and meticulous approach to evaluating and addressing those factors that can influence IVF outcome: All patients/couples should learn what they can reasonably expect before committing to IVF. And finally, is important for patients/couples to have realistic expectations and to “plan the trip” before embarking on the IVF journey
While it is true that it will often take more than one IVF attempt to achieve a successful outcome, it is not good enough to simply advance this argument as a reason to just “keep on trying. Ninety percent of my personal IVF practice involves treating patients who have experienced two or more prior IVF failures. Some had undergone more than 10 failures and believe it or not, in one case the couple had failed more than twenty prior attempts. A common thread that often underlying such heartbreaks is the failure to thoroughly plan the IVF journey before embarking on it. Preparing for IVF requires a very individualized approach. It is important to understand that each patient/couple is different and that a “one size fits all, ‘recipe approach is inappropriate.
