    Honestly, I went into my first round thinking I would be the exception to the rule - that it would work first go for me. I think most people do the same. The reality for me was much different though. I did four rounds of IVF with my own eggs and never got there. In the end, I ended up seeking the help of an egg donor and thanks to her we have a two year old and I'm currently pregnant with Baby #2.

    Your own success will vary, of course, depending on your reasons for actually needing the IVF in the first place. Age plays a HUGE factor in my opinion, and to go into an IVF cycle at 40+ years of age and expect it to work first time would be setting yourself up for disappointment.

    It's funny (or not, as the case may be) how fast you become a veteran with IVF. It doesn't take many failed transfers to bring your expectations back to reality. I would suggest that you go into each cycle not expecting it to work - but being hopeful. To me that is much more realistic. And hey, you might be one of the lucky ones! Maybe it WILL work first go for you. But if not, you'll be in good company. For most of us it can take a few tries. Either way - it will be worth it in the end x

    You'll get there hon. My egg donor had PCOS and needed IVF also. She ended up with two beautiful kids
