Facing Failed IVF Treatment: Solutions to Overcome Disappointment

Solutions for IVF Failure Anti-Despair

Despite having a high success rate, in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments can come with risks of failure. So, what are the solutions for failed IVF treatments?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the pregnancy programs chosen by couples facing infertility. IVF involves a rather complex procedure compared to other pregnancy methods.

While the success rate of IVF is quite good, the outcome still depends on the individual patient’s condition. Failed or unsuccessful IVF treatments often leave couples emotionally distressed or even hesitant to start the pregnancy process again due to its lengthy and involved nature.

Factors Contributing to IVF Failure

Several factors can contribute to the risk of IVF failure, such as:

  • Mother’s Age. Age can affect the quality and quantity of eggs. As age increases, fertility conditions and the number of eggs may decrease.

  • Mother’s Body Response. If the mother’s body does not respond well during the pregnancy program, it can lead to IVF failure.

  • Poor Embryo Quality. Poor embryo quality can also be a contributing factor to IVF failure.

  • Chromosomal Abnormalities in Embryos. Not only quality, but if embryos have chromosomal abnormalities, it can also lead to suboptimal IVF results and failure.

  • Lifestyle Factors. Habits like smoking, alcohol consumption, and excess body weight can also influence the success of IVF treatments.

  • Implantation Dysfunction. This condition occurs when embryos placed in the mother’s womb fail to attach to the uterine wall. This can hinder embryo development into a fetus, leading to IVF failure.

What Should You Do When IVF Treatment Fails?

Failed IVF treatments can have an emotional impact on couples. Many couples are even afraid or worried about starting the process again due to the trauma of previous failed attempts.

One thing you can do if you’ve experienced failed IVF is to find out the reasons behind the IVF cycle failure. This will help you identify the causes of the failure.

You also have the opportunity to try again. After evaluation, the second IVF cycle is expected to be more successful.
