I have had two IVF Treatments and will soon go for the third one this spring. I don't know why not even one was successful. I asked my fertility doctor and she said it sometimes happen this way. I am scared because if they transfer the last set of embroys and it fails again then I have to start all over . Please, what will I do to have a sucessful IVF? I need sucess stories from those that have done IVF and if yours failed eariler, how did you handle the stress?

You aren't doing anything wrong. I did not have success until my fourth cycle. Sometimes it takes longer. I can tell you I did EVERYTHING I thought could help achieve success. I did acupuncture, took chinese herbs, went to counseling and spoke to a wellness coach, ate well, slept enough and meditated every night before I went to bed and before I got out of bed in the morning. Why did I do all this? Because they were all things I could do in a situation where there is absolutely no control. The greatest gift I gave myself in this process is believing I would be a mom and the child I ended up with was the child I was meant to have. And you know what, I was right. With all my losses, I could not imagine have a different outcome.

Good luck and big hugs!!!

Thanks Davina, for the link. Unfortunately, the last IVF failed again and I will be going for the fourth procedure. I don't know what I am doing wrong. The cause of my infertility is as a result of Endometriosis. I keep praying for the best. I welcome any advice or suggestions.

I'm sorry I didn't see your article earlier. I hope by now you are pregnant following treatment. If not, this reply might be helpful to you or others who are in treatment so you know you are not alone.

My name is Davina Fankhauser and I have two children via infertility treatment after fourteen years of trying to build my family. You can see a short video of my story and others at http://www.fertilitylifelines.com/resources/personalstories.jsp?startid=1. Everyone's infertility journey is different. In addition to EmpowHer, there are great resources such as the AFA, INCIID, or Resolve that provide opportunities to communicate with others in the infertility community.

Today, I have found my passion through Fertility Within Reach, www.fertilitywithinreach.org, a nonprofit organization created to educate infertility patients how to become their own best advocate as they attempt to gain family building benefits including the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Being apart of something bigger took the focus off of my infertility and gave perspective to the stress I felt.

I wish you the very best.
