My partner and I have been trying for nearly 4 years with no joy. We had our 1st attempt of icsi in feb 12 which unfortunately unsuccessfull. Weve started our 2nd cycle using frozen embryo's 2 wks ago, although the thought of going through it all again was a hard decision i guess if you want it badly enough like my husband keeps reminding me you just keep going!! Don't think there is ever a rite time or a particularly good time to go for it again but I'd definately wait atleast a few months inbetween cycles. The best advice to give you is to wait untill you feel as positive as you possibly can and try and be in a a good mind frame, which believe me sumtimes seems impossible. Good luck x
I am on my first cycle of icsi so cant comment on how long you should wait, but just saw your message and wanted to offer my condolances. You should retry as soon as you are ready too, emotionally and physically. Dont give up but make sure you give yourself some rest time, enjoy some time with your DH. And as Spiderwebs said, as soon as you feel more positive, jump back on that roller coaster.
Hi Marisa, so sorry to hear about your failed cycle. I got the results yesterday of my second failed cycle of icsi :(
I waited 3 months between my 2 cycles. The hospital want you to have one "normal" period before starting your next clycle, and it took me the 3 months to get my body back to normal. After my "outcome bleed" it took my body 9 weeks to have my next period. By this time I felt emotionally strong to go through the next cycle.
I will be giving it one more try and then that is it for us, maybe 3rd time lucky?
It's very hard on your body and mind, but stay strong and have faith. xx
Some people use imagery with IVF to stay calm. I found a website called Fertile Heart that helps to support me through my journey. You will find all sorts of success stories on the site. Best of luck to you.
