What is the maximum number of times I can repeat an IVF treatment?
Few IVF cycles result in successful pregnancy after the first treatment cycle. Fertility specialists may need to prescribe an alternative combination of fertility drugs, perform another method of assisted reproductive technology (ART) alongside IVF.
There is no legal limit to the number of repeat IVF treatment cycles you can receive from fertility clinics. The amount of treatment cycles you may attempt must be decided between you and the fertility clinic. Your fertility specialist will advise whether a repeat treatment could prove successful and will advise on alternative fertility options which may improve your chances of conceiving.
Most infertility treatment clinics offer couples who have had two failed IVF cycles to repeat the IVF treatment free of charge. Not all clinics provide the third cycle of IVF free to patients however it is becoming a common practise.
Couples who have tried three unsuccessful IVF cycles may want to attempt IVF using an egg or sperm donor to improve the rate of success. In Turkey, there are legal issues concerning egg and sperm donation that patients should discuss with their chosen fertility clinic.
