Dear Peter
Sorry to bother you but just a quick question

If IVF/ICSI fails on several attempts - even though the protocol may be slightly different each time. Is it likely that there is a definite scientific reason which cannot be seen? (eg poor eggs, poor sperm, poor chromosomes) or could it just be that luck wasn't on your side that time?

I know this may seem like a silly question - so sorry!

many thanks
Kerry

Further investigations such as sperm DNA fragmentation studies and aneuploidy screening might help.

Good luck!
