Q5. When can I have another round of IVF treatment if my first cycle is unsuccessful?

It is medically possible to go for the next cycle immediately. In some cases, however, we may need to modify your treatment, depending upon an assessment of your previous cycle. For example, if the ovarian response was poor, we may advise you additional medications to increase your response for the next cycle.

Risks of IVF

Multiple pregnancies after IVF – Incidence of twin pregnancies is 20% and incidence of triplets is 3-4%. Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) is a side-effect that can occur during infertility treatment with ovulation inducing drugs. Symptoms of this syndrome may include ovarian enlargement, accumulation of fluid in the abdomen and gastrointestinal disorders (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea). Severe cases of OHSS are however very rare (1-2% of cases)
