There are several reasons why couples may drop out from IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatment. Some of the most common reasons include:

  1. Financial Constraints: IVF is an expensive treatment, and many couples may not be able to afford the cost of multiple cycles. The cost of IVF varies depending on the clinic and location, and it may not be covered by insurance.
  2. Emotional Strain: IVF can be emotionally taxing for couples, especially if they have been trying to conceive for a long time. The process can be stressful and may require multiple visits to the clinic, which can impact work and personal life.
  3. Physical Discomfort: IVF treatment involves several procedures such as hormone injections, egg retrieval, and embryo transfer, which can be physically uncomfortable and painful for some couples.
  4. Poor Response to Treatment: Not all couples respond well to IVF treatment. If the couple does not have a good response to the treatment, it may not result in pregnancy, and they may choose to discontinue the treatment.
  5. Unsuccessful Cycles: Even if a couple has a good response to IVF treatment, there is no guarantee that it will result in a successful pregnancy. Couples may become disheartened after multiple unsuccessful cycles and may choose to discontinue the treatment.
  6. Personal Reasons: Couples may have personal reasons such as a change in priorities or a decision to adopt, which may lead them to discontinue the IVF treatment.

It is important to note that each couple’s experience with IVF is unique, and there may be other reasons why couples choose to discontinue the treatment. It is crucial for couples to discuss their concerns and reasons for discontinuing the treatment with their healthcare provider.
