Failed IVF
IHR provides effective IVF treatment programs for patients from other centers who experienced a failed IVF cycle .

A failed IVF cycle is emotionally and financially upsetting. Many of our patients come from other IVF centers due to failed IVF cycles. We can help you. We have helped many patients from around the world to have a baby despite previous failed IVF cycles. Many patients come to IHR after their initial IVF centers refuse further IVF treatments. If you are a patient with a failed IVF cycles, consider contacting us for a second opinion. We are renowned for our specialized knowledge and high IVF success rates even in difficult cases. IHR's expertise in failed IVF lies in our willingness and ability to individualize our approach to best suit each and every one of our patients. If you have any questions as you review the material on failed IVF cycles, please contact us for a FREE Failed IVF E-Mail Consultation.

What is failed IVF?

A failed IVF is an IVF cycle cancelation because not enough follicles are produced; not appropriate stimulation; ineffective strategy; an inadequate quality eggs are retrieved; the retrieved eggs do not fertilize; unexplained results; and transferred embryos may not implant; and therefore no pregnancy after embryo transfer.

Failed IVF: Not enough follicles produced

Most IVF centers routinely cancel IVF cycles if the patient does not demonstrate a sufficient number of follicles. This makes sense if a better ovarian stimulation can be applied in a subsequent cycle. However, if there is indications a patient may have diminished ovarian reserve, nothing better can be offered in a subsequent cycle and cancelling may waste the patient's last good chance of pregnancy. Some patients are not given an ovarian stimulation protocol best suited to her ovarian age. For a successful IVF treatment, patients must be given ovarian stimulation protocols based not on her age but her ovarian age.

Failed IVF: Low Stimulation and Cost IVF cycle

There is another trend developed In recent years: some centers have started to propagate so-called "eco-IVF,” or “low cost IVF cycles." Low cost IVF cysles produced lower pregnancy rates and showed no cost advantages. At IHR, we are not afraid to use more aggressive forms of ovarian stimulation, if test results and thorough examinations of the patients show that low ovarian reserve requires such treatment. By careful monitoring during ovarian stimulation, most negative side effects of stronger ovarian stimulations can be avoided. This is exactly what our physicians and nurse coordinators do.

Failed IVF: Ineffective passive strategy

IHR will go after even a single egg in some patients, if a patient manages to produce one follicle. While pregnancy chances are obviously small with retrieval of only one egg, it takes only one egg and one embryo to establish pregnancy. A majority of our patients come to our center from prior failed IVF experiences. They need an IVF center that will fight for those few remaining eggs.

Failed IVF: Poor quality eggs and embryos

Egg quality reflects the final quality of an embryo. Poor egg quality leads to poor embryo quality. The quality of sperm, while not unimportant, is minuscule in comparison to egg quality. Embryos from low-quality eggs often result in a failed IVF cycle. The quality of eggs is also crucial for the success of IVF. in women with DOR we have provided DHEA supplementation to improve egg quality, improves embryo quality, and reduces aneuploidy (chromosomal abnormalities) in embryos.

Failed IVF: conditions that can prevent embryo transfer

IVF cancellations can also happen when the patient develops medical issues preventing transfer embryos to her uterus. Most IVF patients develop sufficient good enough endometrium (lining of the uterus) to receive their embryos. When a patient's endometrium is slow to develop, various medications can be used to help encourage the proliferation of the endometrium. These conventional medications are enough for a majority of IVF patients, and these patients have their eggs retrieved and embryos transferred. For a small number of IVF patients, however, endometrium can stay unresponsive to conventional treatments. Current research trials are underway to improve the endometrium in patients, otherwise persistently unresponsive.

Failed IVF: Unexplained IVF failure

Understandably, it is very upsetting to be told you have a failed IVF cycle due to an unexplained nature. Often overlooked by IVF centers is the female' autoimmunity. Female autoimmunity can negatively impact the result of an IVF cycle. At IHR, patients with evidence of autoimmunity receive a treatment to keep their autoimmunity in check. This has resulted in many successful IVF births in women with previous autoimmune-related failed IVF cycles.

What to do when IVF cycles fail

The important question is whether you can have a baby and whether IHR can improve upon previous failed IVF cycles. At IHR we learn from other centers failed IVF cycle. As an IVF center that has been pushing the boundaries of IVF treatment around the world, IHR in conjunction with our premier PGD laboratory has treatment options that other centers cannot offer.
