Found a good clinic: Your previous history should not be a factor in an ivf cycle. Success will depend on the experience of the clinic, the skill of the embryologist, quality of the ivf lab and to some extend, whether you are "reproductively young or reproductively old". At 30, you should still have good success rates at an experienced and successful ivf clinic. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
