In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) used to treat infertility that has failed to respond to other medical or surgical interventions. This is a form of infertility treatment in which an egg is surgically removed from the ovary and fertilized outside the body. Depending on the quality of the semen, the fertilization is done either with the help of a conventional IVF method or with the help of an Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).
One of the main factors influencing the outcome of IVF treatment is the age of the woman whose eggs are used. This is so because the quality of the eggs decline as the woman gets older. The rate of birth defects, chromosome abnormalities and miscarriages also rises with maternal age.
The procedure has an average success rate of 30-35%. This rate is affected by the woman’s age at the time of treatment and upon their particular fertility problem.
Treatment of Recurrent IVF Failures To experience a negative result after undergoing an IVF cycle is disappointing. In cases of recurrent IVF failure this can particularly be a distressing experience.
At the Mediheal Hospital clinic we can assist in investigating and treating the likely causes of repeated and unsuccessful assisted conception treatment.
Based on the results of these tests, we can offer the supportive treatment pertinent to each individual with a view to help you conceive successfully.
