My 14 month old maiden BSH queen has just returned from her 3rd time at a proven stud and all three occasions, although multiple matings have been witnessed, she has failed to take every time and have come back in to call like clockwork.

Can I have some advice on how you would proceed from here personally.

Do I return her to the same stud for a 4th time?
Do I try another stud?
Do I wait until next year when she's more mature and try again?
Do I give up hope and neuter her?

Has anyone else experienced a maiden queen taking after the 4th try? Any positive stories out there?

Please help

Thanks for the reply. She is meant to be fully mature already but I have read articles of some people saying they waited for the following year and it worked, no problems.
I guess its trial and error as long as she isnt loosing condition?

If her heats arent very intensive exhausting her, it could be an idea to wait.
Extra vitamine E may help sometimes. Also some nice vitamine paste. To top off everything. :) .

Doubling down on waiting until a queen is at least two for breeding, and a different stud.

Different stud. Also keep in mind the possibility of infertility if she has too many images heats. My first queen became infertile because I made the mistake of getting my male after I got her. By the time he matured and figured things out (Persians aren’t the brightest sometimes!) she had had to many heats and was infertile.
