Repeated IVF Failures
Repeated IVF failures are not uncommon. Some IVF clinics consider the first IVF cycle as a try-out, where they test a woman's response to the IVF drugs on an average dose. This protocol is not commonly explained to patients, who often expect the IVF to work first time.
Undergoing an IVF cycle is emotionally, mentally, physically and financially draining. Therefore, I believe that women should be monitored closely, and drug dosages adjusted accordingly, rather than using the first cycle to test a woman's drug response.
Repeating failed IVF cycles is very draining on the body. IVF clinics will generally want a woman to wait 3 months for the body's hormones to normalise. However, some clinics are eager to try the following month. This leads many couples to keep on trying again and again without taking time out to recharge their health, which would improve the next cycle.
