We've just finished our second round of IVF/PICSI (AF arrived this morning, BT is tomorrow to confirm BFN) and I'm starting to wonder how many times I can do this.
So how many cycles did it take you to get pregnant?
Our issues are male factor.

Two fresh cycles got me DD and 1 frozen 1 fresh got me pregnant this time.
A friend did 27 cycles over 7 years before she got her bubba. That's commitment.
Not being harsh but I guess it comes down to how badly do you want it.

Have you had a follow up yet with your FS?

5 cycles for bubba 1 and 6 cycles and still counting for bubba 2.
Sorry you got a bfn. Ivf is a hard road and if you want it bad enough you will keep going and if not then you stop.

I hope in your case a change of clinic and extra testing brings you success!
We have an appointment in a couple of weeks to follow up, we don't have any frozen so we'll take a month off before doing another full cycle.

I should add my 27 cycle friend got her baby after changing FS for a second time. The new FS threw everything at her whereas the old one never tried anything new. She thinks it was adding prednisolone which changed things, none had done it previously which is almost criminal in my opinion after that many transfers.
After 4 cycles I think it's time for a change. Give them two more gos

It's a tough road for sure... We have a DD too (naturally conceived). It took us 7 cycles ( 5 fresh and two frozen). All up we had 10 embryos transferred before the last one stuck. I had decided to go as hard as I could until the end of this year, and if it hadn't worked by then, we would move on as a family of three.
good luck, hopefully cycle number 3 will be your golden ticket! Xx
