IVF FACTS: WHAT FACTORS AFFECT SUCCESS?

Have you been trying to get pregnant for a while without any luck and would like to get some facts about IVF, such as what affects your chances for successful treatment?

IVF, which stands for In Vitro Fertilization, is a widely used treatment for infertility. Usually, IVF is not the first line of treatment when a couple has failed to conceive and is used when less invasive options have met with no success. Although in some cases it might be the treatment of choice as first line treatment.

One thing to keep in mind when you are thinking about the success rate of IVF is that there are a range of factors involved that may affect a positive outcome.

Factors That Affect IVF Success

How successful Denver IVF may be for you can depend on a number of different factors, including these:

Ÿ  Age—As women age, both the quantity and the quality of their eggs are affected. There are fewer eggs and they are not of as good quality as they were at a younger age.

Ÿ  Previous Pregnancy—If you have been pregnant before, by the same partner, your chances of successful IVF treatment at a Denver fertility clinic are higher.

Ÿ  Specific Fertility Problems—There are some fertility problems that lessen your chance of successful IVF. For instance, if both partners have fertility problems, this will decrease the likelihood of becoming pregnant through IVF.

Ÿ  Lifestyle—Your lifestyle habits can play a big role in the success or failure of IVF, just as they can in your general fertility. If you are a smoker, for instance, you should know that woman who smoke require more fertility drugs prior to IVF, have lower uterine implantation rates, need about twice the number of IVF treatment attempts and experience increased failed fertilization cycles. If you are considerably overweight or underweight, this can also affect the success of IVF.

There are other factors that may play a big part in the success or failure of IVF treatments.

Quality of IVF Treatment

One of the factors that can affect the success or failure of IVF is the quality of the treatment itself.

Before starting IVF treatment, make sure that the facility and the medical team are experienced and Board Certified in Colorado Reproductive Endocrinology. Just as in many other areas, who you select to do your IVF can have a huge impact on whether it succeeds or fails, so choose wisely.
