Follow-up Response

Thank you, ohss was ruled out. I ended up with a failed ivf this cycle. From your expertise what would be reasons for failed ivf?  I'm hesitant about trying again because of my age of 38 soon to be 39 in April. The fear is that I may soon be approaching menopause!  And I also need to know what approach would you take when you have a patient like myself. All my testing came back normal if not I would not have proceeded with an ivf cycle. I opted for an eco ivf cycle. Can you please provide me with sound answers and detailed because I'm a self paying client with no insurance and I need you to tell me from your expertise and experience what other options I have and what other routes their are and if treatment should be more aggressive.  I was considering instead of 3 day transfer I was opting for 5 day transfer with assisted hatching?? Your the expert so I will be awaiting your response. Thank you, and while I've been grieving from my lost the clinic has not even called to see if I was OK. So I really need your help. Thanks

Springbaby,  nyc
