Now since you are searching for the success rate of IVF I can take it that you are well known about what IVF is and the procedures involved. However, I would like to write about IVF basics so that to ensure you are really well aware about the procedures.
In the early 1970s and 80s IVF was a mysterious procedure and it was known by its sister name called as test tube babies. Today IVF is greatly proclaimed in the infertility industry and works like a charm and is generally used in cases of fallopian tube occlusion.
The procedure involves of taking the mother’s egg and the father’s sperm and fertilizing them outside the womb (in a lab). It undergoes various cycles. As soon as the fertilization takes place and an embryo is formed it is placed within the womb.
IVF is very expensive process and it has been estimated that only 5% of infertile couples seek it out. So you fall within the 5% couple who are looking for IVF.
What is the real success rate of IVF?
The success rate of IVF depends on the age of women. For instance women under the age of 35 have a success rate of 39.6% whereas women who are above 40 have a success rate of 11%. This was the statistics given by CDC in 2009. However, the numbers are increasing as the techniques are getting refined with recent developments in technology.
Here is another interesting statistics from CDC for the year 2009.
In all the cycles (higher and lower) pregnancy was achieved in 29.4% of women.
Among those women who got pregnant (including higher and lower cycles) only 22.4% resulted in live births.
