Here are five avoidable reasons why your IVF has failed in the past.
We often expect IVF to tick EVERY box for us. However there are so many hundreds of people who have come to see me following failed IVF who have had issues with their cycle which NEED sorting BEFORE IVF. Otherwise it just gives it too much to do. Whether it be an oestrogen issue or hidden luteal phase defect often there are simple changes which make ALL the difference.
Embryo Transfer is a really critical time. If your bladder is way too full or you are just sore or tense your uterus can go into spasm which makes it really hard for the embryo to settle without being expelled. Please with our pleasure download our free IVF cheat sheet and embryo optimisation technique to help with this issue.
3) The eggs are taken too early / late
Some clinics have set days where they will collect eggs. For most couples that is absolutely fine because your body complies with the drug therapy. However, sometimes a woman is a little slower of faster than the dates, and fertilisation is not given the best of chances.
4) You got back on the horse too soon
Sometimes it is absolutely the right thing to do to get straight onto the next cycle if you have just had a failed treatment. However, when women are broken in their soul and their bodies are still spotting and trying to repair and regulate going straight into another cycle is not the best way to make it happen. Self care, space, love and hormonal attention can pave the way to a beautiful and successful cycle next time. 5) There’s an emotional or spiritual block
These issues are tough to find, but can make it hard for the body to feel open and able to conceive.
This is partly why we built the Fertility Haven. It literally takes you through a questionnaire to ensure you have all these bases covered and provides you with all the tools to self diagnose and treat without any overwhelm or anxiety. We want to make sure ALL women are able to get to the bottom of their fertility needs.
