Now, couples can assess their likelihood of conceiving with in vitro fertilisation (IVF) before the beginning of the treatment with all the aid of a new calculator -- Outcome Prediction in Subfertility (OPIS).
With the help of this new pre-treatment calculator, girls can discover the opportunities of being successfully pregnant past the initial IVF cycle.

"I don't think girls would desire to undergo their first cycle of IVF simply to determine their chances in future cycles – I believe their purpose would be to have a baby in that first effort," Dr David McLernon of the University of Aberdeen was quoted as saying by Reuters.
In line with the study, with a total of 184,269 entire IVF women, 113,873 cycles were . analysed by the
It had been discovered that:
- 29 percent of these girls had a baby only after one IVF cycle
- 43 percent of them had given birth post finishing six IVF cycles.
Age was one pre-treatment factor which may estimate the probability of conceiving. It was found that women who were 31 preceding their first IVF cycle had chances of giving birth than those who were more or 37.
The odds of succeeding also depended on a number of years before trying the IVF treatment these couples stayed infertile. It had been discovered that couples who'd experienced infertility for three years had chances of conceiving than those who experienced it.
These four factors determined the success of conceiving after starting the IVF treatment:
- The number of eggs which were retrieved in the cycle.
- The age of the woman.
- In the event, the eggs were frozen or not.
- The developmental stage of the embryos earlier being transferred into the uterus of the woman.
A study even showed that more amount of eggs produced in a cycle could point towards it being of lower quality which would reduce the likelihood of conceiving.
Each one of these factors jointly said that a 30-year old girl with the experience of two years of infertility had:
- 36 percent likelihood of having a baby after finishing one IVF cycle
- 79 percent chances of getting a baby after finishing three IVF cycles.
"It also can give false hope (or lack of hope), and it's hence important that patients thoroughly discuss these rates and their particular specific situation using their providers," she added.
