Hello,
This is a minefield question as i think the sucess rate is all down to your own personal treatment and not how many other people it has worked for 1st time but i am sure everyone has different views. Are you looking for success rates for your clinic? Each clinic states different success rates mine for example (Live birth rate from using icsi) They have reported 31.% sucess rate. You can find details of your clinics actual reported success rates on the **** website http://guide.hfea.gov.uk/guide/

There are lots and lots of people it has worked 1st time on but sadley also for lots it does not i think it really is down to the individual treatment you have received. I am about to begin my first round of treatment next month and i hope it does work 1st time but i am prepaired for the negative outcome 1st time around also. Wishing you lots of ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ 7 i hope you get your BFP first time around.

I have no personal experience of this, but may well be heading down that road soon myself.  Hoping this brings good news for you and your husband soon. :)

Ahhhh thanks hunny  ^hugme^

We named them Pumpkin & Boo as we knew they would be due on halloween if it worked  ;) We feel soooo lucky that we were lucky enough to have Pumpkin on board at the end of the 2ww. The wait was awfull naturally.... i had backache and a poorly tummy which were my normal AF signs  ::)
I was naughty and tested early on my birthday at 11dpo (5days past blast transfer) and got a faint positive.... luckily it kept getting stronger and here we are nearly half way through  ^pray^
Hope you have the same luck as us tomorrow & have ur own little pumpkin picture to show off  very soon  ;)
