IVF and ICSI can be very successful treatment methods. However, some cycles don’t finish with successful implantation, even after a number of transfers with apparently good embryos. Also, sometimes a cycle achieves a conception, but the pregnancy doesn’t develop to term.
There are various biological reasons why these two circumstances could be related, which lead us to look at potential therapies which could help.
There is support for several treatment options for women with “recurrent implantation failure” (defined as 2 or more failed embryo transfers in IVF/ICSI treatment cycles). However, the available evidence is limited for many of the possibilities, due to a lack of suitably large clinical studies. Listed below are options we can talk about in a follow-up appointment in the upsetting event of a failed implantation or miscarriage. In devising treatment programmes, there are investigations we can carry out before treatment commences, which help us to tailor your treatment closely to your needs. There are also options carried out in the process of treatment that could help implantation.
If you’d like to talk about your options after an implantation failure or miscarriage, we’re here to help.
