Worried for your first IVF cycle? Though IVF is considered as most successful ART. But sometimes there are few points that we forget to consider before going for the cycle.

So, while you are planning for your first IVF cycle then it’s important to learn about IVF success factors that can help or hinder your IVF success.

Are you 30 or above?

You should know that the quality of your eggs/sperms depends on your age. Women at their younger age (below 35) have higher chances of IVF success. As your age increases, the quality and quantity of your eggs also decreases, which can reduce the chances of IVF success. In fact, in live births, IVF success rate for women below 35 is 40%.

What are your previous pregnancy records?

When you go for IVF cycle share your previous pregnancy records with the doctor. IVF success factors include previous healthy pregnancy and if it was with the same partner. Factors such as recurrent miscarriage or a different partner may reduce IVF success rate.

Do you understand the types of fertility problems? While some male infertility problems do impact IVF success, factors like uterine abnormalities, exposure to Diethylstilbestrol (DES), low sperm concentration or fibroid tumors also decrease the success rate of IVF. IVF success factors are dependent on ovulation. Ovarian dysfunction, like high FSH levels which indicate a low ovarian reserve, may also reduce the chances of successful IVF.  When both partners are infertile, chances for IVF success becomes low. The factors such as the length of time you have been infertile is also important

Do check your embryo quality and the WOI. Window of implantation and the quality of the embryo should be tested before. If there are abnormalities in the quality and it is placed in the uterus at wrong time, both will lead to failure of IVF.

Prevention is better than cure! Before starting an assisted reproduction treatment, the Endometrial Receptivity Analysis (ERA) by IGENOMIX can identify if the patient will require a personalized window of implantation.

The ERA test is used to assess endometrial status and to determine whether or not the patient’s endometrium had a receptive gene profile at the time of biopsy. The result from the test determines if a woman’s endometrium is receptive or not on the day and in the kind of cycle when the biopsy was performed. This test is recommended for patients with apparently normal uterus and with normal endometrial thickness (≤6mm), in which no problems are apparent. A displaced implantation window is detected in approximately 25% of these patients.
