Is It Rational To Ship Embryos From One Clinic To Another?

Choosing IVF for having a genetically connected baby is a major decision in any couples life. It takes a lot for them to actually accept the fact that we are not able to have babies in a normal way and move towards assistant programs.

Unexplained Reasons for Infertility

When a couple goes to an IVF clinic for fertility test and further treatment most of them come to know about “unexplained reasons of infertility” in them. There can be many causes of male and female infertility. In fact, there are equal chances of male and female infertility in cases where couples are not able to conceive naturally. Apart from the various reasons that cause to infertility in any couple, in many cases, the reasons remain unexplained. Trials of IVF cycles are required for the success of conception in any couple.

Not Losing Hope

Infertile couples looking for conception programs through assisted pregnancy always are much stronger than any other normal couple. We deal with a number of infertile couples in our centers who deal with social and family pressure to have a baby even when they are struggling with their own emotions of being a childless couple. It is never easy for any couple to go through an IVF program. It requires a lot of patience and perseverance to not let that hope go away from them. As a matter of fact, none of the pregnancy treatments come with a guarantee. Even though couples go for it as there is a lot of hope connected to it.

Failed IVF Cycles and its True Reality

Counselors at every IVF clinic make it very clear to the couples that it may require more than one or multiple IVF cycles to achieve pregnancy for them. It is ethically much needed for every IVF clinic to disclose such facts before enrolling the couples for an IVF treatment. Matter of fact every couple are internet savvy these days and come to the clinic after a complete homework from their side. They are also quite aware of this fact that one or two IVF cycles might not be good enough for them. They make themselves comfortable with the fact and accept it before going forward. This is why it is easier for them to cope up with the disappointment that they experience after a failed IVF cycle.

Losing Hope and Switching Center

Even if couples are already prepared in their mind for failed IVF cycles, there is a point where they tend to lose hope. Reassurances from the IVF Consultant and a counselor might not help them at that time and they prepared to switch from one clinic to the others. Of course, there are a number of IVF clinics operating in every important location, but the question here is “is it truly going to help the couple ultimately?”

The answer in most of the cases is NO. The couple sometimes decides to move to another clinic with their embryo. This is nothing but a psychology to support the hope that they are living with. The couple has already made a lot of homework while they have chosen a particular IVF clinic. They consult a number of portals and experienced people before finally choosing an IVF clinic. All of the research work goes wasted as they make a switch. Moreover, it does not prove to be ultimately beneficial for the couple as well. Had it been beneficial for the couple it would still have been a wise decision to make? Changing the clinic or the doctor will only add to complexities in the procedure and Drainage of money. The result will still remain the same even if you changed the number of clinics that you wish for.

Coping With Failures

It is important for the infertile couples to stick to the clinic that they are in and talk to the support staff. They have to accept the hard fact and go on with the procedure. Doctors who have been working for them regularly for all these while are the best people who are attached emotionally to them as well. Believe in them and do not let your hope go down.
