What is IVF?

IVF is one of the most popular fertility technique used to treat couples experiencing infertility problems. During the IVF procedure, the eggs and sperm are fused in a laboratory and the resulting embryos are examined for its quality and then placed into the uterus of the women. Such embryos can also be frozen and stored for future use (cryopreserved). IVF is the most commonly used assisted reproductive technology procedure.


When is IVF recommended?

IVF treatment is used to treat infertility in the following patients with

  • Blocked or damaged Fallopian tubes

  • Decreased sperm count or poor sperm quality

  • Ovulation disorders, premature ovarian failure, diminished ovarian reserve or uterine fibroids

  • Fallopian tubes removed

  • Genetic disorder

  • Unknown reasons of infertility

Success rate of IVF

The success rate of IVF depends on a lot of factors, including your age, lifestyle, the reason for infertility and reproductive history. The success factors are discussed in detail below


Your age is an important success factor for IVF treatment. The younger you are, the more the success rateof IVF. This is because, as you become older your ovaries do not respond well to the hormone stimulating drugs, which in turn results in less production of eggs or lower quality of eggs.

Previous pregnancy history

This is another important factor for IVF success. If you were previously pregnant with the same partner with whom you are undergoing your IVF treatment now, then there is a higher probability of IVF success. If you have had miscarriages or tried getting pregnant with a different partner, it might reduce the chances of IVF success.

Your Fallopian tubes

The healthier your Fallopian tubes, the higher the chances of success of IVF treatment. If you have a blockage in one or both your Fallopian tubes, it reduces the chances of the success rate of IVF treatment. If you have such problem, a simple procedure called salpingectomy can be done to increase your chances of success.

Type of fertility problem

Factors like uterine abnormalities, exposure to DES or fibroid tumors decreases the chances of success with IVF. Some male infertility problems also lead to failure of IVF treatment.An important fact to consider is that the IVF success factors are dependent on ovulation.Ovarian dysfunction can reduce the chances of IVF success. The higher the ovarian reserve,
the better the chances for IVF success.The time period through which you have been infertile is also considered a major factor that has an impact on the success of IVF treatment. The more sooner you start your IVF treatment, the higher the chances of success. If you've been suffering from infertility problems, now is the right time to approach the Best IVF centre in Chennai.

Use of donor eggs

If you're trying to conceive using donor eggs, then the age of donor and the quality of eggs are considered important. Using donor eggs from young women can increase the chances of IVF success.


Smoking and drinking can have a greater impact on the success of IVF treatment. Women undergoing IVF treatment are required to stop smoking at least 3 months prior to the treatment. Women who are obese are also required to lose their weight as it increases the chances of miscarriage. Women who are underweight are advised to improve their weight.
The bottom line is, the more healthy you stay, the more the chances of success of IVF treatment.
