Grieving process such as anger, guilt, sadness and self blame should always be expressed and acknowleged. As we can see, Mrs B is still not pregnant although she has been trying for several years. She did five cycles of IVF, but the results were negative. She had a history of two ectopic pregnancies in previous years and this was considered her third. Her right fallopian tube was removed due to her previous ectopic pregnancy. Therefore, her chances to get pregnant is reduced.
