Sadly my first IVF did not work

Hi all.

Just to update you all but my cycle did not work. Started seeing brown discharge and bleeding a few days before my test day. But didnt have the courage to post anything then. Its been 2 weeks now and honestly time is a healer. Its hard initially but just want to say to everyone trying to always factor in and be prepared for your treatment not to work. Be hopeful but also realistic at the same time. Its easier to accept the outcome that way.

Hopefully better luck next time.

All the best to everyone and thank you for your support and continous kind words

Hi Sumadi, I am so sorry it didn’t work. I am also going through the same. My First Ivf cycle also failed. It was hard at first as you said but we learn to cope as with time. I have 3 frozen embryos so will try again. May God bless both of us with a healthy child.


Yes at first it was really hard but you just got to get on with life. Life is worth living!

Good luck and thank you for the prayers.


Hi Sumadi. Oh dear, not what we want to hear, but I'm pleased you are coping well with the disappointment. I don't know whether it would help at all, but I do have a couple of lists of questions I could email you in confidence if you want. You could look through them before you go for your next appointment and see if any will help. My contact email is support@fertilitynetworkuk.org Thinking of you. Diane


Awwww yes not the desired outcome but still a possible outcome. What are the questions about?


Things you may want to ask your specialist when you go for a follow up appointment. Diane


Sorry to read this. You’re attitude is quite positive though. Be kind to yourself xx


Thanks and all the best


I am really sorry to know what you have been through. It is really a tough journey. It is even sadder that once you were excited about your IVF. But then you lost that too. I can really feel for you. I empathize with you on your loss.

I can completely understand how much it is for you. You are really going through some tough days of your life. I hope they end soon.

But at the same time, I am happy to know that you are a strong lady. I am glad to see the positivity inside you. You have a lot of courage and strength. You are an inspiration to many out there. I really wish you have a baby real soon.

Wishing you lots of luck and success in future. Fingers crossed for you. Lots of baby dust on your way.


Awwwww such a beautiful message. Thank you so much for your kind words and support.

All the best.


It's so tough xxxx I'm sorry to hear you had a negative - hope you find the strength to move on and try again x


Yes thank you for your message yes going back to work and your normal routine really helps
