How long should I wait following unsuccessful assisted reproduction treatment?

We are often asked this question at our clinic because, following an unsuccessful attempt at in vitro fertilisation there is always the hope of another go. The recommendation has always traditionally been to leave a space of 3 months between each ovarian stimulation, which can be stressful for patients whose age is against them.

It is for this reason that we do not recommend putting off a new attempt for more than one month in patients who need to carry out treatment as soon as possible.

How many eggs on average are donated on an Egg Donation treatment at Instituto Bernabeu?

In Spain, we performed 40% of all egg donation cycles in Europe. The experience accumulated at Instituto Bernabeu in the last decades, allows us to offer to our patients a high quality and personalized treatment.

We guarantee a minimum of 8 donated oocytes and a statistical average of 11.
