Depends: Your return to a "normal" cycle will depend on your underlying cause of infertility. For a woman who cycles monthly, it my only be a month or so, but for a woman with pcos it can be harder to predict. Talk to your inferility doctor about what to expect after treatments and how to take care of yourself between attempts at pregnancy.

How soon after a failed IVF cycle can you try again?

How soon after a failed IVF cycle can you try again?

Ask your doctor: There are a few clear medical reasons why a woman has to wait before another try; there are also many personal ones. I have often let patients start again immediately if the conditions were met. See what your ivf doctor thinks.

I'm having spotting after a failed IVF cycle, any chance that it was late implantation or am I just delusional?

I'm having spotting after a failed IVF cycle, any chance that it was late implantation or am I just delusional?

Unlikely: Its more likely that your hormonal levels are altered from the cycle and may cause this. On the other hand, other possibilities include: 1. Undetected polyps 2. Rebound ovulation (earlier then usual) 3. Cervical trauma from the embryo transfer.

After a failed IVF cycle, should couples try to conceive naturally before the next cycle? Here the assumption is there is gap of 6 months

After a failed IVF cycle, should couples try to conceive naturally before the next cycle? Here the assumption is there is gap of 6 months

Yes: Yes try but why the gap of 6 months? Usually you should keep going because time is not a friend to the woman. A "wash out" month is usually all that is needed. If finances prevent continuing then see if you get lucky. Talk with your doc about options as they will know your situation. I hope this helps.

When do I expect my menses after a failed IVF cycle? All medications have been stopped and yet my period is not following.

When do I expect my menses after a failed IVF cycle? All medications have been stopped and yet my period is not following.

Usually on time: Generally the cycle will come 2-5 days after the Progesterone has been discontinued sometimes though the process may not happen as planned. At a minimum I would check another pregnancy test if the cycle doesn't start on time. Otherwise check with your provider for instructions. Good luck it's a tough process.

I have been spotting for 2 months in between periods after a failed IVF cycle. I have a small cyst. Could it be the cause of the bleeding.

I have been spotting for 2 months in between periods after a failed IVF cycle. I have a small cyst. Could it be the cause of the bleeding.

Doubtful: The spotting is most likely due to hormonal variations. Your GYN should be monitoring your female hormone levels, thyroid function and prolactin levels. Small cysts rarely cause bleeding.

After a failed IVF on 7/30/14 got my period on 8/18/14 worry now I'm still waiting for this month. If this normal?

IVF: It could be irregularity of your hormones from the IVF. But if you have been having unprotected sex, I would definitely do a pregnancy test.

I am looking to start on a course for dhea after a failed ivf. Anything I should avoid during this period and how bad are the side effects?

Not much info: This is a controversal medication to use for fertility since its not available made by a commerical pharmaceutical company, you find it in health food stores or compounded. There are no good studies that show an improvement in pregnancy rates, and many mds around the country do not use it.

I am cycle day 8 after a failed IVF but still bleeding light. Is this normal. Will my fertile days be the same this month? Can I have mtple follicles

I am cycle day 8 after a failed IVF but still bleeding light. Is this normal. Will my fertile days be the same this month? Can I have mtple follicles

See your RE: You need to see the doctor who did your ivf to evaluate the follicles which remain going into this next cycle. Generally, the number of days of fertility are the same, but the days that they occur may change. If you are going to try to conceive on your own this month, I recommend an ovulation predictor kid. They are quite accurate. You are still high risk and need to see your OB or re.

Today is the 3rd day I stopped my medicines after a failed IVF, but I didn't get my periods yet. Although I have spotting yesterday and today &bachache

It takes time: Sometimes my patients will experience the symptoms of PMS but will not bleed. I have seen this take from as little as one cycle to come back to as much as 4 or 5 cycles. Be patient. Be proactive, clean up your diet, have blood building meats like chicken and lamb. Get acupuncture. Acupuncturists can also create wonderful herbal remedies to boost red blood cells and get your period back on track

How many days after a failed IVF will I start my menstruation. Is a second test necessary when my 1st bhcg is below 1?

Soon: Most pregnancy tests are performed between 10 to 14 days after embryo transfer. If your menstruation doesn't start within the next 4 to 6 days after a negative initial pregnancy test, have another pregnancy test performed.

What is IVF?

Good Question!!!: Ivf stands for in vitro fertilization. Normally fertilization takes place in the female body after intercourse, specifically in the fallopian tube, which picks up the egg from the ovary. So conception in the body is "in vivo" fertilization. In vitro fertilization just means fertilization takes place outside of the body-in a test tube or petri dish. So ivf babies are also known as test tube babies.
