The secrets of a successful IVF

We decided to start writing, this week, about a new section that was inspired by the various references have been made so far in the assisted reproduction field. This section includes information about the myths and facts of a successful IVF treatment.

Sustainable manipulation of personal emotions, choices and decisions can be a hard part for women who undergo a fertility treatment, for those who have faced a lot of unsuccessful infertility therapies or even have underwent a lot of miscarriages so far. When you’re investing incredible amounts of time, money, and psychological capital into an IVF cycle, you want to do anything possible to make it succeed. Individuals and couples can struggle with complex decisions about how far to take the quest for children. In vitro fertilization (IVF), frequently uninsured, is unaffordable for many, and other routes like donation, adoption or surrogacy programs can be just as, or more, expensive and pose their own challenges, with the most dominant ones… the ethical challenges!

So here are some facts –myths and facts to be honest- on what can actually improve your chances and drive you through a successful treatment.

Myth #1

“There is no control over the failure or success of an assisted reproduction treatment cycle”

The results of an assisted reproduction cycle are to a large extent based upon a thorough evaluation of the couple, and there are a number of tests the fertility specialist should proceed with, before they begin to evaluate success or failure possibilities and probabilities. The big problem, though, is that –most of the times- the couple during their treatment are not receiving the right guidance and as a result they might overlap important and necessary information that can drive them either towards positive or negative results. So what you have to wonder before starting an assisted reproduction cycle treatment is:

  • Are the dynamics of the sperm satisfactory so as to fertilize an egg and create a heathy embryo?
  • Is the quality of the follicles and the biological age of the ovaries indicative of a successful IVF treatment?
  • Is the uterus well-prepared for the implantation and development of an embryo?
  • Are the tubes open and functional?
  • Do I have the right nutrition in order to contribute to the success of an IVF treatment?
  • Is my lifestyle tailored to the needs of an IVF treatment and a pregnancy, later on?
