IVF success rates in three cycles

Brenda - November 17

Hi
Please help understand why in IVF, that if it is going to work it should work in the first 3 cycles. I have heard this before but truly do not understand this statistic.

also why do success rates vary so much from clinic to clinic? It is a sitution where the RE has to determine what works best in his clinic as far as drug stimulation protocols? What determines a patient drug stimulation protocol, is it there infertility diagnosis or is it what stimulation protocol independent of infertility diagnosis works for the RE?
Please share the thought process a Re under goes when determining the drug stimulation protocol for a patient.
thanks for your wisdom and knowledge you share with all of us woman.
we appreciate you.

Over the last several years the data compiled indicate that any treatment protocol will produce a pregnancy in 3 to 4 cycles, or that protocol will probably not produce a pregnancy in that individual. IVF is an intense collaboration between the clinician and the IVF laboratory. Success rate depends on both. The treatment protocol used on a patient is determined by the RE. It is his/her judgement about which protocol, and when to retrieve eggs.
Good luck.
