You experienced what is called a biochemical pregnancy. I think the best way to describe it is a very early miscarriage. There are a great many variables in the entire process of becoming pregnant, whether naturally or with IVF. We do not yet know all of the factors involved. We do know that only 20% to 30% of women's eggs are capable of successful pregnancy. Not all sperm will produce a successful pregnancy, even if they do fertilize eggs. I am sorry for your loss, but there will probably never be a complte explanation as to why.
