In an ideal world, everyone who wants to get pregnant should be able to get pregnant. When ovulation occurs, the presence of sperm within the uterus should improve your chances of getting pregnant – and therefore, create the miracle of life.
However, the world in which we live is not always ideal – and sometimes, we might not be able to get pregnant, regardless of the day when we are trying to conceive. Every effort seems fruitless – and every time we are getting more depressed, knowing that our chances are growing slimmer with each passing month.
In the past, there was nothing we could have done about it. If you couldn’t get pregnant, that was fairly much the end of it. Now, however, you have the option of in vitro fertilization. Medicine today allows us to get pregnant – giving women who tried and failed a higher chance compared to those who have a functional reproductive system.
Why Start on the IVF Journey?
If you have difficulties conceiving a child, there might be some infertility issues going around with you. Some might have occurred over time – whereas others might be because of a certain genetic condition. Based on the reason, you might have to follow a different medical treatment. Here are the main causes of infertility.
The Success Rate of IVF
Several factors may determine the success rate of IVF treatment. In many cases, the numbers look very good. But in others, even with this course of treatment, the numbers might not be that optimistic.
The success rate of this treatment, as mentioned, will depend on factors such as your maternal age, reproductive history, infertility cause, and other lifestyle factors. It is also important to understand that a pregnancy rate is not the same thing as a live birth rate. Generally speaking, the live birth rate is much lower compared to the pregnancy rate.
According to clinical stats in the United States, the live birth rate for an IVF cycle stands at around:
Most of the time, after an initial consultation, you will receive an approximate of your chances. Bear in mind that even if implantation occurs, you will have to keep in close contact with your doctor and receive further IVF. Sometimes, conceiving can be made impossible simply because your uterus does not provide a friendly environment. Your eggs may be healthy, but if your uterus is “hostile,” the baby will not be able to implant.
