One failed cycle does not mean that your family friend will not be successful on her next attempt. The clinical pregnancy rate for IVF and ICSI at Manchester Fertility in 2010 in the age range 36-39 was 26% for each cycle started and 32% if the patient reached embryo transfer.  For more individual advice on what to do next I would suggest she contacts one of our Patient Advisors on 0161 300 2737.
