Every IVF cycle involves an element of uncertainty in the sense that the outcome cannot be predicted and you can never be sure whether you'll get pregnant in your first cycle or whether you will get pregnant in your fourth. And which is why patients aren't sure whether they should give up or maybe change the doctor or consider third party reproduction.
Yes, it's true that every cycle entails a risk, but you need to remember that this risk is predominantly financial and emotional. As far as medical risks go, if you're doing IVF in a good clinic, you don't need to worry about the impact either on your own body or on that of the baby because IVF is a tried and tested treatment.
A lot of what you read about the risks of breast cancer being increased or weight gain are lot of old wives' tales and don't really withstand scientific scrutiny. This is because these hormones are natural hormones which get excreted promptly.
So, make sure you've done your homework from reliable websites and talk to your doctor to make sure that you know exactly what you can do to reduce your risk and increase your chances.
What to find an IVF clinic which respects your time and intelligence ?
