Understand How You Can Increase Your Chances Of IVF Success

IVF success rates will depend on many different factors such as the age of the woman and the reason why she is using In Vitro Fertilization. This process is becoming more and more popular as couples that could not have children before are learning that they have a good chance with this type of procedure. There is hope and the success rates are getting better each year thanks to technological advances and the growing experience of medical professionals.

To begin with, people choose In Vitro Fertilization when they cannot conceive a baby naturally. The reasons for this could range from blocked fallopian tubes to Endometriosis. It could also be because of ovulation problems, a low sperm count, or some other infertility issue.

Well-trained professionals should always do the In Vitro process. You want to visit a doctor that has experience and a good success rate with this process. Be sure and do some research before you choose where to get this process done.

The IVF process involves several different steps. Basically sperm and eggs are put together in a laboratory until one or more embryos are formed. Then the embryo or embryos are put inside of the uterus to grow.

When it comes to IVF success rates, you will need to talk to your specific doctor and see what he or she says. The average success rate in women under thirty-five is about 29%. In women over the age of 40, the success rate for a baby drops down to about 11%. Your doctor will have to advise you about your specific case.

Many people take injected hormones and other fertility drugs during the IVF process. Usually the goal is to get your body to make several eggs instead of just one so that there is a better chance of a healthy pregnancy occurring. Your doctor will know when it is time to retrieve your eggs from your body. After that is done, your partner’s sperm will be mixed with your egg or eggs in the laboratory. In just a few days, your embryo or embryos will be put in the uterus. Within a couple of weeks, your doctor will give you a pregnancy test to see how everything is going.

The success rates are rising and many people are enjoying being able to bring a baby into this world. There are many happy parents out there. IVF is an amazing procedure.

    This book is such a great resource for anyone going through IVF. The author gets down to the science of things and the pictures of what is going on are so helpful. Coming from a medical background I really appreciated this book. And for those not from a medical background it is written in a way everyone can understand. My husband and I are about to go through IVF and will definitely be using this book throughout the process.

    Useful book but poorly edited, November 15, 2011
    Nefertiri (Ottawa, Canada) –

    This review is from: IVF: A Patient’s Guide (Kindle Edition)

    This book is packed with good info in plain language. It offers a thorough introduction to IVF, though you will have to look further for complex info or details you’ll want later in your journey. Grammar and spelling is appalling, with especial carelessness in punctuation. At best, it’s distracting; at worst, you’ll have to reread every fourth or fifth sentence to clarify meaning. Nevertheless, the book is still a good and informative read.

    im not in this thing but i say quite a lot…

    very clear explanations
    although I’m Catholic, i really don’t mind IVF
    it’s really helpful for people who can’t have babies..
    but the only thing that i didn’t really like was when they put the embryo into liquid nitrogen to keep it frozen, and they said it could be kept frozen for long periods of time.
    I just watched human life documentary before and the embryo has life! thats human life you’re keeping frozen for long periods of time!
    but apart from that, it’s all good, i guess

    The clinic where I live refuses to discard embryos. And many people give away their unused embryo for embryo adoption. They aren’t all trashed. Even so, the vast majority of frozen human embryos never make it after they are transferred to the womb, because there is still a huge failure rate for IVF. Many embryos have inherent genetic defects and are miscarried.

    YES, it is the fertilised egg (afterwards referred to as embryo) which they freeze! But only if you want them to. Before you start the entire procedure they make you go through all legal papers (at least here in the Netherlands) so you can decide 1) if you want them to fertilise more than one egg (since then, it becomes life) and 2) what they are allowed to do with the embryo’s they do not place back. If you only want one embryo they won’t counterset, but obviously your chances decrease.

    If you are treated at a qualified hospital/clinic, they will 1) only freeze embryo’s of a very high quality to make sure they’ll survive the process, and 2) check the embryo’s quality again after defrosting before transferring it. The fact that success rates are low is more due to the fact that 1) IVF couples usually have other medical problems and 2) even in natural pregnancies chances are small. People forget that sometimes! Our local hopsital has an IVF sucess rate of 36%!

    A 36% success rate is low, compared to other clinics. Is that for frozen or fresh transfer? Many clinics these days have a success rate of 50% or greater for fresh transfers.

  19. LoveMe1010
    December 13, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    In the Netherlands standard is one embryo transfer for any woman under 35, two if you’re over 35 or if you’ve had previous unsuccesful IVF attempts. They do this to minimalize the risk of twins, triplets etc. which they at all times consider risky pregnancies. I can imagine in the US or elsewhere, if a doctor agrees to replace 4 embryos at once, your succes rate will obviously be higher. Average succes at the first attempt here is about 25% so you can see why I consider 36% a good score.
