Greetings!! I am a regular follower of your blogs and appreciate the importance you give to availability of free information to your patients. I want advice from you regarding my failed IVF cycle here in Delhi,
I am 34 years old and went through my third IVF cycle in a renowned Delhi clinic. My second IVF cycle which happened earlier this year was a success (transferred 2 AA embryos on day two), however, it ended in a miscarriage at 7 weeks due to detection of no heart beat.
I underwent my third IVF cycle recently and was given the prognosis of poor ovarian reserve. My AFC on day two typically lies between 10-11. I was given gonal-F (350 IU) for 11 days and 10-12 eggs were retrieved, out of which only 2 were deemed good enough (AA quality) to be transferred. Since only my two embryos were good enough, 2 (AA quality) donor eggs were fertilized using my husband's sperms and they were transferred as well. The doctor told me that sometimes through 'co-culturing' of both mine and donor eggs,chances of implantation increases. So in total 4 embroys (all grade A) were transferred on day 2. My endometrium lining was described as 'beautiful' and 'perfect' by the doctor.
As a rule the clinic does embryos transfer only on day 2. They has also used special 'GLUE' which would increase the implantation chances. According to them, they had done all best they could do to maximize pregnancy in my case. But still, I fail to understand why my IVF failed....when everything looked so perfect.
I seek your valuable advice as I am feeling very helpless and dejected.
