The success rate of IVF (in vitro fertilization) can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the woman’s age, the cause of the infertility, the quality of the eggs and sperm, the number of embryos transferred, and the experience of the reproductive health center you choose.
In general, the success rate is higher in younger women and decreases with age. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), fresh embryo transfer IVF success rates for women under 35 are typically around 40-50% per cycle, while for women over 40 the success rate is lower, ranging from 10 -20% per cycle. However, these percentages may vary depending on individual circumstances.
HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY CHANCES OF SUCCESS?
- Choose a reputable reproductive health center: Look for clinics that specialize in ART (assisted reproductive techniques) and have experienced reproductive health professionals.
2.Make positive lifestyle changes to optimize fertility. This includes maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption and managing stress. If you suffer from a chronic disease such as arterial hypertension or diabetes, it is important that it is well controlled.
3.Strictly follow the prescribed medications and treatment protocols provided by your reproductive health professional. This may include taking various pills, or injecting yourself or examinations at your reproductive health center.
- Consider preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD): it can help identify chromosomally normal embryos, which would increase the chances of successful implantation, reducing the risk of miscarriage.
- Psychological support: IVF can be emotionally challenging. Seeking counseling or joining support groups can reduce stress and improve overall well-being during the process.
- Be informed and ask questions: Educate yourself about the IVF process, potential risks and success rates. Ask questions and communicate openly with your reproductive health professional to make sure you understand the treatment plan and have realistic expectations.
If you have had an unsuccessful IVF procedure, remember that this does not equal failure. It is important to consult with a qualified professional in the field who can provide personalized advice based on your particular situation.
