    Default How many cycles did it take ?

    Hi guys !!

    I am getting Ivf in March next year and I wanted to know how many cycles its taken everyone to conceive ?

    I am really hoping to only have to do two at the most I'm 22 years old and have conceived naturally before to my df (24 yrs old) which ended in a misscarrige 1 and a half years ago
    the reason why we can't now is because I have developed endometriosis and he has a low Sperm count.

    I am also curious to know how many embryos you had transferred ? The clinic I am going to only allows one at a time and I'm worried that may be less successful any advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you !

    It took 4 full cycles first time and one second time around. The first was a result of a single transfer and the second was from a double. Very few if any clinics will let you transfer 2 until you've had a few goes, especially at your age.
    Are they going to remove the endo first?
    Good luck!

    Thanks for sharing, I thought it may be like that having to do multiple tries before they will place more that one embryo but I wasn't to sure what the Ivf clinics are like in Australia I only ever see shows and documentaries based in America so it's hard to know what's out there.

    They have chosen not to remove it yet as its only in early stages and they have advised that I have children before they remove it that may be because I am young and have some time before things get to bad.
    I am really hoping I don't have to to do many cycles I have my heart set on falling pregnant mid next year so I really hope it works out

    We managed to have success on our first round of IVF(we had said we would only do it twice if if didn't work first time). We only had one transferred. We did want to have two transferred but they refused to do it. Was rather disappointed in there response considering how much money it all cost. I have endometriosis (have had it removed twice) and PCOS and a few other issues. So I consider us very lucky to have had success first time around. I must admit the IVF journey was a lot harder then we both expected. It wasn't until after I had finished all the meds that we realised how much it was affecting me.. Best of luck and I hope you only need to do one round!

    Also another question if there is no embryos to transfer do you still have to pay for the full cycle and try again ? That part scares me
