Surprising Facts About In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF Is Not A Guarantee

Many individuals might think IVF is a great way to guarantee a successful pregnancy if they or others have experienced infertility. However, this is not the case, as in vitro fertilization is not a guarantee. The success rate of IVF depends on quite a few different factors, including the age of the woman whose eggs are used, lifestyle, the cause of infertility, other medical conditions involved, reproductive history, and even the number of IVF treatments. This makes an exact percentage hard to pin down, though some indicate it is roughly forty percent for women under thirty-five, though doctors will agree IVF makes pregnancy much likelier for those who have experienced infertility than without it.

Speaking of the number of treatments, continue for information on how this impacts the rate of success for live births.
