We offer certain modifications in IVF cycles for optimizing a desirable outcome in couples suffering from failed attempts at pregnancy and uncertain about the causes of failed IVF.
The Internet and IVF Failure
The internet is flooded with various treatment options for failed IVF cycles. So it is important for the couple to discuss their concerns with the doctor regarding what treatment suits them the best.
Dr. Banerjee studies each case individually and decides which treatment will be the most beneficial for that particular patient. She does not believe in increasing the cost of treatment by using technology whose role is yet to be established. Many couples have been blessed this way who were previously struggling to fulfill their dreams of parenthood.
Causes of failed IVF
Failed IVF is a distressing experience for couples seeking fertility treatment. Several factors can contribute to a failed IVF cycle:
Advanced Maternal Age: Women over 35 often have decreased egg quality and quantity, making successful fertilisation less likely.
Poor Egg Quality: Even in younger women, poor egg quality can hinder embryo development and implantation.
Uterine Issues: Conditions like fibroids, polyps, or scarring can affect the uterine lining’s receptivity for embryo implantation.
Sperm Quality: Low sperm count or poor sperm motility can decrease the chances of successful fertilization.
Chromosomal Abnormalities: Genetic issues in embryos can lead to implantation failure or miscarriage.
Ovarian Response: Inadequate response to fertility medications can result in fewer eggs for retrieval.
Poor Lifestyle Choices: Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and obesity can negatively impact fertility.
Hormonal Imbalances: Disorders like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid problems can interfere with the IVF process.
Infections: Undiagnosed infections in the reproductive organs can be a hidden cause of IVF failure.
Stress and Emotional Factors: High levels of stress can influence IVF outcomes, both mentally and physically.
A failed IVF cycle is not necessarily the end of the road. Each case is unique, and consulting with a fertility specialist is crucial to analyse the specific reasons behind the failure and develop a tailored plan for subsequent attempts.
