Chances for the first and second ECO

What are the chances of getting pregnant with IVF?

If during a year of conjugal life the couple can not conceive a baby, experts recommend that they undergo a comprehensive examination of future parents in order to reveal the cause of infertility. When such a diagnosis is confirmed, and traditional methods of correcting health do not help, the doctor advises couples to use the IVF method for artificial insemination and transplantation of the embryo into the uterine cavity. However, this procedure must be carefully prepared. In addition, almost all future parents, who are recommended to turn to this method of fertilization, are asked: what are the chances of getting pregnant with IVF?

Unfortunately, no one can give you the exact data. However, it is generally accepted that with different forms of infertility, the chances of becoming pregnant with IVF are 40-45%. However, it should take into account the form of the disease, the age of the woman, the presence of sexually transmitted diseases and so on. A more accurate answer to an exciting question can be given by a doctor, guided by the results of a survey of both potential parents.

For example, the average percentage of conception in women after 40 years is 30-35%. If the mother is diagnosed with obstruction of the fallopian tubes, the probability of pregnancy with IVF will be about 40-45%. With endometriosis or the absence of a single ovary, the chances of becoming pregnant are only 10%.

It is important to note that the process of primary and repeated IVF consists of the following manipulations:

  1. Stimulation of ovulation.
  2. Fence of eggs.
  3. Fertilizing them "in vitro".
  4. Cultivation of embryos up to 2-5-day stage.
  5. Transfer of embryos to the uterus.
  6. Support for early pregnancy after in vitro fertilization.

In addition, the chances of getting pregnant with the IVF method increase with each step of the program.

The program begins with the stimulation of the ovaries. Under the influence of hormones in them grows not 1-2 eggs, but not less than 8-10. That is, the chances of becoming pregnant are increasing. Further on ultrasound maturation of follicles is determined, after which the material is taken. The operation is under anesthesia. Each embryo received by the egg is fertilized with the husband's sperm, which he surrenders on the same day. The cells are placed in an incubator where they develop. When the embryos reach the necessary stage of development, of them choose the best and transfer to the uterus of the patient.

After this, a woman takes a course of medicines aimed at maintaining a pregnancy. After 2 weeks, a blood test is performed. If pregnancy has not occurred, then raise the issue of repeated IVF. It is believed that if the subsequent three attempts are not successful, it is necessary to revise the treatment plan. As a rule, a three-month break before recommending IVF is recommended. During this time, the reproductive expert will be able to analyze the causes of failure. Perhaps the doctor will change the drugs that stimulate the ovaries, or advise a donor egg or sperm. In addition, you will pass tests or conduct other procedures and studies that will help find the cause of failure. The body will rest and regain strength. According to statistics, the second and third attempts at artificial insemination are the most effective. So do not despair, go hard on your goal - and you will certainly succeed. By the way, there are cases when conception occurred after the 7th attempt of IVF. So do not be discouraged.
