Many educated patients find it very hard to deal with IVF failure, especially when the cycle was perfect, and the doctor transferred a top quality blastocyst into the uterine cavity when the endometrium was receptive.

After all, the doctor did everything possible, and the blastocyst looked perfect, the endometrium was 8 mm and trilaminar, the transfer went smoothly and the doctor was really optimistic !

So then why did the cycle fail ?

The reality is they understand that medical science doesn't have the answers to all their questions, but they find it very hard to accept this.

Because they are educated , they expect that medical science will have all the answers.

However , we need to accept the limitations of medical technology . After all, when we put an embryo back in the uterus, we can't monitor or track or control what is happening to it. This is a microscopic ball of living cells, and implantation is a biological process which is notoriously inefficient !

The problem is these patients are emotionally very vulnerable , and don't want to accept the truth that not everything is in our control !

They want answers, which is why sometimes doctors end up manufacturing them , just to keep them happy, by running additional expensive genetic tests and offering experimental expensive unproven treatment. Sadly, this doesn't help them reach their goal at all, and just ends up making them waste money !
