Once a couple starts trying to conceive they are usually excited and filled with hope. They have dreams and plans... which do not include struggling or failing to fall pregnant.
However, for many couples, fertility treatments are the only option for conception and the physical procedures are only one part of the process.
Fertility treatments have helped millions of couples and individuals around the world, but not all treatments are successful.
Global IVF success rates are under 50%. More than ½ the IVF cycles fail and nobody knows exactly why.
Before signing up for and undergoing fertility treatment, which usually involves IVF, you need to mentally and financially prepare for the physical procedures. You also need to prepare for the emotional challenges you will face during and possibly after the procedures.
Questions to ask your doctor in advance include: What’s my fertilisation rate? Do I have good or poor quality embryos? Do I need donor eggs? Should I consider PGD or PGS?
Decide who you would like to tell about the procedure as these people will likely expect feedback. If the outcome is negative it might be difficult to inform a lot of people.
In 2015, we had a 49% success rate in women under the age of 34
and saw an increase in successful treatments of women over the age of 35.
Only someone who has experienced failed fertility treatment can begin to explain the disappointment, anger, pain and feelings of hopelessness. It is through their bravery that we are able to learn about the experience and how to best support them and others going through the same difficult time.
Facing failure often seems impossible considering the costly procedures, physical stress and intense emotional struggles. Loss is not something that will just disappear. You can only try to make it manageable.
When you are ready and if you want to continue exploring treatment options, get in touch with your doctor. He or she will guide you and recommend a strategy for moving forward.
