Should I Try Again if I Experienced Implantation Failure?

Should I Try Again if I Experienced Implantation Failure?

Not all in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment cycles result in a healthy pregnancy. One of the ways that IVF can go wrong is called implantation failure. Implantation failure occurs when a fertilized embryo fails to thrive after implantation, leading to the loss of the pregnancy.

You can experience implantation failure for several reasons. Trying to get pregnant again after implantation may still be worth it to you with the support of reproductive assistive medical techniques.

At the New York Fertility Institute of New York City’s Upper East Side, Dr. Majid Fateh and Dr. Khalid Sultan provide comprehensive care and support to new and existing patients who have experienced the heartbreak of implantation failure.

Our LGBTQ+-friendly Manhattan clinic is a good place to start when it comes to deciding whether to try again for a successful pregnancy after implantation failure. Here’s more on what you need to know in this situation.

Understanding implantation failure

If you experience implantation failure and want to try again for a healthy pregnancy, the first thing to do is to understand what caused the implantation failure. The team at the New York Fertility Institute can help you evaluate potential explanations and determine the likely cause of a past implantation failure.

Implantation failure can occur for several reasons. These include:

At the New York Fertility Institute, we offer comprehensive diagnostic testing to determine the reasons for your implantation failure. We also review your IVF process, including the number of embryos that were transferred to your uterus.

Trying again after implantation failure

Talk to the experienced fertility doctors at New York Fertility Institute about the best path forward for your family after implantation failure. Depending on the reasons why the pregnancy loss occurred, Dr. Fateh and Dr. Sultan can recommend the right strategies and intervention for you and your family.

Blastocyst transfer allows your embryo to develop further before transfer, increasing your chances of implantation. Frozen embryo transfer can also increase your chances of success with IVF, as can assisted hatching procedures that manually open the outer layer of the embryo for better chances of uterine attachment and implantation.

The team at New York Fertility Institute can also assist you in expanding your family through surrogacy if the circumstances of your past implantation failure indicate that trying IVF might not be the right option.

There’s a path forward for you. Work with the same-sex friendly fertility doctors at Manhattan’s Upper East Side New York Fertility Institute to find it today. You can schedule your consultation with a member of our team online now, or call to book.
