I'd love to hear about success after an ivf chemical. It's my 3rd try in Jan (well 2nd really as my first round was cancelled), My second round ended with a chemical pregnancy. Could ivf work twice in a row? I hope so x

I don't see why it couldn't work twice in a row. This isn't MY success story... but my cousin had 5 rounds, 4 fresh/1 frozen. Her first failed. Her second was a MMC. Her third (frozen) resulted in her son. Her fourth failed. Her fifth resulted in her daughter. I hope that helps give faith! They're the most beautiful kids you'd ever want to meet! And, smaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart!!! (Not even in a biased way... really freaking smart kids!) I hope that helps?

Thank you! I wish you all the best. It can get very stressful and depressing but you got to keep strong. Because of my PCOS, I got plenty of eggs by default but they were all not-so-good quality. Didn't have any for freezing either. Doc gave us 10% success rate per egg but miracles cam happen.

A friend of ours had low egg count retrieval but at her 4th try, she got twins! So keep believing and it can happen.
