Thanks for your question.

Your IVF was done on 15 September and you went for HCG test after 17 days, which came negative and you want to know what the other ways to conceive are.

One of the most difficult problems while treating infertility is IVF failure also called implantation failure. There are many reasons for IVF failure and exact reason why implantation fail is not known.

If you have failure in one cycle, the IVF is repeated in next cycle, and many couple conceive after multiple cycle failure. So if you have single cycle failure, go for second cycle of IVF.

Hopefully implantation will be successful in second cycle.

Hope I answered your question. I wish for success of your IVF.

Do write back if you have follow up queries to ask.
