A failed IVF Cycle is the grievous & troublesome phase of an individual’s life. Dream of any couple after marriage at a certain stage is this only- to welcome the days of Parenthood. When this dream is shattered by the negative result of IVF medication, then what? Will you just mourn and spend the days in saddening? A big NOOOO!!! Those couples who have had their first cycle of IVF failed, must have done some mistakes.

The patient turns to when their IVF first cycle fails is their fertility expert, because she/he is the one, who performed each and every procedure starting from ovarian stimulation to the last step i.e. embryo transfer. Patient naturally thinks that their fertility expert must have the answer about their unsuccessful IVF.

Who is supposed to be blamed?

Is it a doctor or you? Yes! It could be a possible mistake, that you might have hand-picked that clinic, whose success rate is not good and clinic’s experts do not have enough experience in relevant field of ART techniques. However, if it is not, then maybe it’s you, who have done some unwillingly or silly mistake before or during the medication of your IVF. We are here for you to instruct some possible cause that may affect your IVF cycle and to avoid these points.

Let’s read a possible cause that if solving, may bring a fruitful result through your first IVF cycle. It is generally seen that that couple who are undergoing IVF for the first time their parents get more nervous and anxious about the medication. They insist and strictly recommend to the female not to walk more, avoid physical activity, taking rest as much as possible.

True! Some factors, like over-caring, anxiety, stress and excess hope could lead to a downfall of your IVF treatment. Go IVF Surrogacy is the well-brand medical health service provider that serves Indian and International infertile couples, whoever seeking for the best fertility treatment. Let’s get into some factors, which can create your IVF treatment much more calm and easy to handle.

    1. Work on your body to make yourself ready for IVF medication –

If you have made your mind for IVF treatment, then at first take some days or say a few months to be prepared for this course of therapy. Take at least 4-5 month to maintain your body healthy and sound mind.  IVF is not that easy as it is read in the lines or definition. You really need to be mentally fit and physically strong enough to cross all the steps, which are in IVF.

Once you feel fit & healthy to undergo the medication then only go for it! And if you don’t then postpone it sometimes. It’s your body and you are the owner of your own, so take time, have enough nutrition containing products before your treatment and as soon you are completely OK then go ahead! Natural therapies like Acupuncture, meditation, Ayurveda are some helpful strategies for IVF treatment.

     2. Dream for the best but also prepare yourself for the worst –

Stay Calm. Exactly! This is a minor point but plays a major role during the IVF medication.  Not only IVF but also any of the treatments, surgeries or therapies come in risk- whether or whether not possible to achieve success. Same here, IVF never gives the patience surety about 100% success; it all depends on the age of the couple, how much experience a fertility expert holds and many more.

So, instead of just thinking repeatedly about the favorable or unfavorable outcome of your fertility treatment, be neutral.  Remove this statement from your mind- Will it or will it not succeed?

Being over positive can make a couple more depressed if they found a negative outcome from their treatment so it is better to stay Neutral and accept the result with your arms open. Accept God’s choice and instead of blaming the God, just think this – It’s not the end of your journey and whatever happens, it happens for some reason so don’t be negative if you have received negative pregnancy test at the time of IVF pregnancy.

    3. Why doing over and again bed rest during IVF treatment?

Generally, in all cases of first cycle IVF, couples myth is to take as much as bed rest. Yes! you can definitely take rest just after embryo transfer for a few hours but it’s really useless to laying down on a bed and doing nothing.

You know, what makes us confound and nervous during the medication until the pregnancy test is not confirmed? Guess? It is- The result. Just think if the woman keeps sitting on the bed doing nothing, what comes in her mind- obviously this only whether her test will be positive or negative. This thinking soon develops into anxiety and stress.

Rather, a better option is to go for normal activities such as reading the novel, watching funny serials, sketching, painting or even knitting the sweater. Involve yourself in anything that makes you happy and stresses free.

     4.  Are you Younger? Ohh! It’s great then –

This is the major point, which decides the positive outcome from IVF treatment. Age always plays a significant role to carry out successful IVF. This is the reason why it is said- younger the woman is better IVF success is there.

However, each case is different. Age is always not a prior factor – sometimes it’s the infertility condition, which is saying no for pregnancy. So, it is better to be asked each and every obstacle that may occur in your IVF journey with your fertility experts.

    5. What if when your IVF fails?

Have Plan B then. As mentioned above, IVF never comes in guarantee package; it always may be Yes or No result. Yes! There are some factors like age, embryo quality, egg quality, semen quality, and of course the female patient’s capability- is she strong and ready to undergo this medication.

Here plan B means, if the couple has failed IVF cycle then the couple instead of regretting any cause or blaming God, doctor or themselves, they should go for a vacation or a get together with your friends. You need to be very practical at each phase of life whether it is about failed IVF or say about the future planning. Be strong; ask your doctor what is the possible cause of your unsuccessful IVF. Take your time for your second IVF cycle and fulfill all the requirements, which you have skipped in the first cycle.

Decades ago, there was less population of infertile couples, on the other hand, now if we count in India, there are more than 27 million of couples who are facing downside days of their infertility.

Infertility- Have you ever thought about the specific cause why this occurs. If no, then here you are on the right click to know each and every minute detail about Infertility- its cause, how it can be cured etc.

When to think that you are in the clutch of infertility?

This is when, if you have been trying best (for more than one year) by doing sexual intercourse to get conceived but you are not able to- here you are called as an infertile couple. Infertility was quite common amongst females at one time but now infertile males are also at the queue and that too at an expanding level.

Therefore, Infertility is best defined as- when a couple becomes impotent or unfit to conceive after having regular unprotected intercourse (for at least 12 months).

Infertility in Women –

Infertility in women is most commonly caused by female’s ovulation. Ovulation is referred to as the work by ovaries to unleash healthy eggs. Each month a female produces a single egg from the ovary, if the sperm is not there in the fallopian tube then within 12-24 hour it comes along with the bleeding from the vagina, which is said as female’s menstruation cycle.

Menstruation and ovulation are co-related with each other, if the female has issued in her menses or monthly cycle, then she might be in the group of Infertility. This statement is appropriate only for those females, who are experiencing irregular menstruation cycle, heavy bleeding during periods, or severe cramps during these days for the quite long time.

Ovulation issue can be a result of below some points –

  • PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) – this is a case when several cysts develop on the ovaries, these cysts are often unable to unleash an egg, that means no ovulation, if no ovulation case will happen then it is but obvious that the concerned female will be unable to give birth. Due to PCOS, a female may face- irregular periods, have an increased level of male hormone (androgen)- where female experiences unwanted hair growth on the face or another region of the body and may be female’s ovaries become enlarged and comprises of fluid-filled follicles.
  • Premature Ovarian failure – This is the situation when female ovaries stop functioning its own function before the female’s age of 40.
  • Thyroid issue

Cervical Mucus –

If the female has cervical mucus problem, then by that time also, the female cannot perform fertilization inside her uterus. When a female ovulates, mucus in her cervix gets thinner so that sperm can easily go through near the eggs for insemination and fertilization. If this mucus gets harder then it will be difficult for the sperm to travel smoothly and reach near the egg.

Endometriosis-

It is a common issue of female’s infertility, where endometrium (uterine wall lining) starts developing in other places of the reproductive parts like female’s ovaries etc. This all symptoms can lead to the fertility-related issue.

Male Infertility –

If talking about male infertility causes, then we have some most common cause of male infertility and those are –

Semen quality (sperm quality)

Yes! This is one of the significant factors, which contributes to the success rate of pregnancy. If the male is not producing normal sperms at the time of ejaculation then by that time it is No for fertilization. To achieve healthy fertilization, sperm must be –

  1. Sperm must be in healthy and normal shape
  2. Sufficient count of sperms
  3. Sperm must be motile

If these three factors are there in the male sperms then beyond a shadow of a doubt, penetration/fusion of the sperms with the egg will occur successfully.

Injured Testicles –

Sperms are produced in the testicles, if the testicles are injured or damaged then it directly affects sperm quality.

Ejaculation disorders –

Some of the male experiences ejaculation disorder, which make hard for them to unleash semen during intercourse.

Addiction to drugs, drinking habit and chewing tobacco- these are all the factors that make male impotent to produce healthy and motile sperms or they lack insufficient count of sperms.

What are essential requirements for a couple to become pregnant?

  • To achieve healthy fertilization, a woman must lay out healthy eggs at the time of ovulation
  • Sperms must be motile and should be more than average
  • The fertilized egg must attach the exact place in the uterus

Infertility treatment –

Now, if we talk about the treatment of infertility, then here is what IVF comes. IVF is known as In Vitro fertilization, where fertilization happens outside the human body.

This is the medications, which can be called as the universal remedy to untwist the matter of infertility. IVF is best for those females who are having the issue in their ovulation cycle.

IVF is appropriate for –

Women who have had their fallopian tubes removed

  • Women whose fallopian tubes either damaged or blocked
  • Improper ovulation cycle / premature ovarian failure
  • Male factor infertility (if the male produces a low count of sperm then by that time IVF with ICSI is done)
  • Male or female having any genetic disorder
  • Unknown/ unexplained infertility

The procedure of IVF treatment and its success rate-

At the initial level of this medication, a woman has to take medications (fertility drugs and hormonal injections), these medications are given in order to enhance and facilitate more eggs at the time of ovulation.

These eggs are monitored by transvaginal ultrasounds and blood hormonal tests. Once it becomes confirmed that eggs are enough matured and read to obtain, there is the next process- egg retrieval starts.

During egg retrieval, eggs are obtained with the assistance of a hollow needle. These eggs are kept in a petri dish. A semen sample is also collected by the male partner on the same day. Sperms are mixed with the egg in order to get fertilized. Once the motile sperm gets penetrated with the egg, within 3-4 days of it, the formation of the embryo begins. Within 3-4 days of fertilization, selected best two embryos are placed into the uterus for implantation.

Within a week or so, the female has to visit the clinic for further checkups (whether the embryo has attached with the uterine wall or not, if it is then pregnancy chances is more. IVF success rate largely depends upon the age of the female. If the female’s age is below than 35 there are 60-65% chances to get the favorable result by IVF treatment. As the age increases, possibility to get positive result decreases.

So, Yes! Here we are, giving all the inside story of IVF treatment and Infertility symptoms and causes. Hope this information made your confusion cleared about infertility and IVF.
