Ways to increase the success rate in IVF treatment

In vitro fertilization is the process of fertilization of the egg taken from the expectant mother and the sperm taken from the father-to-be in a laboratory environment. After fertilization, the best-quality embryo is selected and transferred to the mother’s womb. The success of the treatment is determined by the pregnancy test performed at the end of 10-12 days. This process, which lasts for an average of 1 month, can be a period that forces couples financially and morally.

 

IT IS POSSIBLE TO INCREASE THE SUCCESS RATE IN IVF TREATMENT


Since the quality of the embryos obtained is one of the main determinants of treatment success, it is almost impossible to predict success before treatment begins. Specialists generally share the success rate of their clinics according to the age of the expectant mother, and this rate is usually between 35 percent and 60 percent.
Other factors that may affect treatment success include:

BE AWARE OF THE MOTHER’S AGE

One of the most important factors for the success of IVF is the age of the expectant mother, because after the age of 35, both the number and the quality of the eggs decrease and this quality is also the determinant of the embryo quality.

 

TREAT PATHOLOGIES ON THE WALL OF THE WOMB

Pathologies such as adhesions, polyps or fibroids formed where the embryo will attach to the uterus can prevent pregnancy from occurring even if the embryo is of high quality.

 

INCREASE SPERM QUALITY

Sperm quality is also important in the development of a quality embryo, but there is no direct indicator of sperm quality. Quitting harmful habits, maintaining an ideal weight and a healthy lifestyle can contribute positively to sperm quality.

 

BE AT THE IDEAL WEIGHT

For the successful outcome of IVF treatment, the body mass index of the candidate couple should be within normal limits.

 

REDUCE STRESS

IVF treatment is a process that forces couples financially and morally. Therefore, the level of stress experienced during treatment should be minimized. Professional support may be required when needed. You have to be patient and persistent. Many couples’ first attempts do not end with a healthy, live baby. Since your first attempt turned out to be unsuccessful, you must be determined to continue.

 

QUIT HARMFUL HABITS

Harmful habits such as smoking and alcohol can negatively affect egg and sperm quality. Therefore, these habits should be abandoned before starting treatment.

 

PREFER A GOOD IVF SPECIALIST AND CLINIC

A good IVF specialist and an experienced clinic with a high success rate will increase your chances of pregnancy. It is extremely important that your IVF specialist works based on scientific evidence and has a character to support you on this long journey. You can get references from your friends and family for the right specialist. You can research the success rates of clinics from published data.
