Will IVF ever work for me?

This number can give hope to those who are seeking having a baby, because it shows that IVF can work for many couples. The IVF process is a practical one and its success rate is high. However, there is no guarantee that IVF works for everyone.

It is a painful fact that sometimes after spending a lot of time and money, it still does not work.  No matter where you are looking for this fertility treatment, there is always a chance for IVF failure. In this article, we are going to discuss about who can experience success in IVF and the reasons behind the IVF failure.

Who Does IVF Work for?

It is a good idea to look at the IVF pregnancy rates of the other women who are at your age to estimate your own chances of IVF success. The data between 2014 and 2016 showed the IVF success rate by age.

Women who are 35 or younger: 29 percent

Women who are 35 to 37: 23 percent

Women who are 38 to 40: 15 percent

Women who are 40 to 42:  9 percent

Women who are 43 to 44:  3 percent

Women who are over 44: 2 percent

The given data shows that IVF is not used for only younger women. Women of all ages can have IVF success although their chances will be decreased in the old ages.

Choose the Optimal Clinic


When you choose a clinic that in most cases treats patients who are at your age having your specific fertility problem, it can somehow give you the sense of relief by knowing that IVF may work for you just like the other successful cases.

Every year, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) gathers IVF data and publish them online on its website. You can find the data by checking their website. Go to the page “Find a clinic” and enter your zip code, by doing so the website shows you the list of the nearest fertility clinics around you.

By clicking on the names, you can check out the reports of the clinic success rate based on the age and other factors. However, you have to be cautious about their data because of the differences in treatment techniques in each clinic and other possible reliability- related issues.

Your chances may rise with multiple cycles


You should know that statistics given above are for one IVF attempt. If you want to get the best possible result during the IVF process, you had better be persistent because the success odds can go higher with multiple IVF cycles.

 By investigating 157 thousand women with the average age of 35 in the year 2015, they found the chance of getting pregnant around 29.5 percent on the women’s first IVF attempt. However, the cumulative success rate increased to 68% after trying six cycles.

Another study in the Medical Journal of Australia showed similar increase. About 11% of women between 40-44 got pregnant in their first IVF cycle, but after their eighth attempt, the cumulative success rate reached to a nearly 39.9%. the highest success rate was for the women under the age of 30 who showed about 92.8% success rate by the seventh attempt.

However, going through multiple IVF cycles can be financially difficult for many couples. In order to manage the costs, you can consider undergoing the process in more affordable countries. Iran can be one of your best options where IVF process is done by the highest quality while having the most affordable costs.

Impacts of Fertility issue on the IVF process


It is totally common to have some worries about your health issues and their effects on the IVF process.

Tubal issue, uterine issue, ovulatory dysfunction, endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve, male fertility issue and multiple male and female issues or unknown factors can be mentioned as the health issues affecting the IVF process.
