It is important to realise that IVF does not always work for everyone – at least, not for the first time. It is is a medical procedure that, like all medical procedures, sometimes fails. In fact, when you look into statistics given by the UK’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HEFA), you will see that only a quarter of all cycles work on average.
That’s the reason why IVF treatment is undoubtedly a bumpy road. Of course, it is full of hope, but it is also not free of struggle and uncertainties.
After spending a lot of money and investing precious time and emotions, patients may feel disappointed, hurt and cheated if they do not succeed. It takes a lot to convince them that the failure was not their fault and that the desired outcome is possible to achieve in the next attempt. Or after a few more attempts.
We are well aware that all fertility patients need support and counselling alongside clinical treatment – and that sometimes it is not easy for them to get from their doctors and clinics.
Our Stronger Together initiative is to provide all of those in need with education, information and – most importantly – the feeling that they are not alone in their difficult journey.
During online meetings and webinars, acclaimed fertility experts will try to answer the question whether it is possible to improve upon unsuccessful cycles – and if yes, how? They will share their knowledge and expertise on most complex fertility issues, discuss the possible causes of treatment failure and help viewers to explore their options for what to do next.
And that’s why MyIVFanswers.com, first aid online IVF support, should be the place you turn to for advice (and hope!) in difficult times after your IVF failure.
