first attempt more likely or not?

Must compliment you on this excellent message board.

My sister (age 35) has gone through a full IVF cycle and a second attempt with frozen embryos.

a few questions:

1. First attempt (implanting one embryo) failed. She was told the first try often has less success. She read elsewhere it has best success rate. Is there any difference between success rate of attempts?

2. On the attempt to implant (2) defrosted embryos they had been thawing for 16 hours. She was told that they normally start dividing within 24 hours. These ones hadn't after 16 hours but they went ahead without waiting to see. did she really stand much chance of becoming pregnant?

3. She has been told she may have endometriosis. From reading up on endo, the main effects on fertility seem to be prior to implantation.
If endometriosis is present but eggs can be retrieved and fertilised, is the outlook good for further attempts?

Sorry, realised I meant to put this on Andrology and Embryology board. :( Have placed it there now. :)
