Why Your Cycle Might Get Canceled or Delayed

Life has its share of setbacks and disappointments. Unfortunately, cancellations or delays of embryo transfer cycles during fertility treatment can sometimes be among those unpleasant hiccups.

There can be many reasons for cancelling the embryo transfer portion of a cycle, including:

-A woman’s body is unresponsive to the medical protocol.

-A fibroid or polyp develops and needs to be removed.

-The uterine lining just doesn’t develop properly.

-A woman’s body is overly responsive to the medical protocol.

But if any of these happen to you, all hope is not lost. A successful transfer cycle may still be very possible, and could be just ahead in the near future. Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon and IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum unpack all of this in detail in this video.
