IVF Journey, In Vitro Fertilization, trying to conceive, can be a long emotional process to beat infertility, achieve fertility, to get pregnant & have a baby. My egg retrieval & embryos (or embyo) are the topic here. Embryo Transfer will be in the next video. We hope to beat infertility for a pregnancy! In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a complex series of procedures used to treat fertility or genetic problems and assist with the conception of a child. IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology.
Here are some statistics directly quoted from PennMedicine:
21.3 percent: The chance of having a full term, normal birth weight and singleton live birth per ART cycle using fresh embryos from nondonor eggs is 21.3 percent for women younger than 35, according to SART’s 2015 report.
IVF success varies with many factors, but the age of the woman is the most important if she is using her own eggs. This is in part because women have a lower chance of getting pregnant from IVF after age 35, and in part because there is a higher risk of miscarriage as women age, especially for those older than 40. While the likelihood of having a full term, normal birth weight and singleton live birth per cycle is greater than 20 percent for women younger than 35, women 35 to 37 years old have a 17 percent chance, and the rate drops off with age. Those 38 to 40 years old have a 11.1 percent chance of the same outcome, while women 41 to 42 have a 5.7 percent chance, those 43-44 have 2.3 percent chance and women older than 44 have a 0.6 percent chance.
