When one talks about infertility, we always relate it to women! The first thing that comes to mind when one says infertility is ‘female infertility’! We always feel that females are the cause of infertility and pregnancy failures! But this isnt always the case, says the experienced fertility expert at Nisha IVF Centre. At Nisha IVF, we’ve come across many male infertility problems too which has reduced the chances of pregnancy and hindered the couples from enjoying the phase of parenthood! So, yes infertility doesn’t always relate to women but also to men!
Nisha IVF provides various male and female infertility treatments like IVF, IUI, ICSI, PESA, TESA etc. The IVF treatment utilizing PESA or TESA sperm is a routine procedure at Nisha IVF Centre, says the best IVF doctor in Ahmedabad. And the success rate is also similar to IVF or ICSI using fresh semen.
When talking about the success rate of IVF treatment, one of the major factors that affect the success rate of IVF treatment is the age.
In this article, the most experienced IVF doctor in Ahmedabad gives the success percentage of IVF according to age.
IVF is a method for assisting people in becoming pregnant. The price of several IVF rounds, on the other hand, can be exorbitant for some, and the likelihood of success varies by age group. But what are the possibilities of that happening? A new study provides a complete picture of the chances of success for women of various ages.
The researchers tracked thousands of Victorian women who began IVF in 2016 until mid-2020.
Success rates of IVF at various ages
According to the study, women who began IVF before the age of 30 had a 43 percent probability of conceiving a baby after one cycle, a 59 percent chance after two cycles, and a 66 percent chance after three rounds. In other words, 66 percent of women under 30 who had three or fewer IVF cycles had a child. According to the IVF specialist at Nisha IVF, the renowned IVF centre in Ahmedabad, the first round of IVF for women under 30 had a 43 percent success rate. The second round boosted the chance of conception by 16 percentage points. The third round increased the overall probability of success by 7 percentage points.
Women who began IVF at the age of 35 had a 40% probability of having a baby after one round, a 54% chance after two rounds, and a 61% chance after three rounds. At 40, the chances of having a baby were significantly lower: 13 percent after one round, 21 percent after two rounds, and 25 percent after three rounds.
This demonstrates that IVF success rates differ depending on the round.
While everyone starting IVF aims to conceive a baby – preferably on the first try – the specialist notes that this research gives individuals a realistic idea of what is achievable and how long it might take. “Knowing that most people require more than one stimulated cycle to have a fair probability of success and that IVF births become less likely as you become older is helpful for planning,” says the IVF expert at Nisha IVF.
This is especially crucial because IVF requires daily hormone injections for two weeks to create more eggs than regular and surgical egg removal and laboratory labor expenditures. A single round might be physically demanding and take up to 40 days or more to complete. thus, the bare minimum is a 4-6 week gap between a negative pregnancy test and a new cycle.
The IVF doctor at Nisha IVF also points out that this data only indicates IVF success and age averages and that other factors may have a role in success. For instance, a lady in her late 30s or 40s who received a donor egg from a younger woman had the same chance of IVF success as the younger donor’s age group.
