At reputable and experienced clinics, the first attempt at in vitro fertilization usually succeeds. However, many couples will need to contemplate a second IVF cycle after unsuccessful first-cycle results.
If an IVF attempt fails, what should be the steps next? Give yourself a week or two to grieve the loss of hope from learning that your cycle failed.
If you’re ready to discuss what went wrong with your IVF cycle, make an appointment with your expert.
Some IVF programs have a substantially higher success rate than others.
Knowing the cause of first IVF failure understanding what went wrong and having a detailed discussion with the specialist is very important.
Embryo implantation failure is the cause of IVF failure if embryo transfer is performed. But that’s not exactly useful.
When in vitro fertilization (IVF) fails, implantation fails, but if it is not clear if this occurred because of issues with embryos or the uterus, most experts in the field of reproductive medicine believe that embryonic arrest is to blame for more than 95 percent of IVF failures.
Embryos with chromosomal and other genetic defects often go into embryonic arrest because they are “too weak” to continue developing and implanting normally.
Until experts do preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) for chromosomal condition on the embryos before transfer, they have no way of knowing whether or not they will be competent.
IVF culture methods like blastocyst transfer let us achieve and sustain high pregnancy rates with just one or two embryo transfers to the mother. As a result, triplets face almost no danger.
Switching to a facility with better success rates and experienced doctors may be the way forward too.

What next after the previous IVF failure?
- Give it a second try
- Ask your IVF specialist for an honest assessment of your odds of success with a second round of IVF.
- Changes to the medication treatment should be considered if problems with ovarian stimulation or poor egg counts occurred.
- Repeat IVF at the same or a different clinic if you had average or good-looking embryos for transfer but none implanted.
If there were serious problems with the quality of the eggs and/or embryos, the cause is most likely an issue with the eggs themselves or with the quality control procedures at the IVF facility. Consequently, you may want to try in vitro fertilization again with a different clinic that has a greater success rate to check if the troubles were related to poor egg quality, poor ovarian stimulation, or poor laboratory conditions.
After one unsuccessful IVF cycle, the option of using donor eggs, donor sperm, or donation embryos is rarely considered.
It’s uncommon, but the uterus could be the cause of the trouble. When embryos fail to implant, it’s usually typically due to being excessively weak to begin with. Embryos can successfully implant into a uterus nearly every time.
Second IVF attempts have a somewhat lower success rate than first ones do. While couples with higher-quality eggs are more likely to become pregnant on the first try through in vitro fertilization, unsuccessful attempts can be mitigated by using the knowledge gained from them to improve the chances of success during the next cycle.
