As you visit a fertility or IVF centre in Kathmandu in your locality to address your infertility, a respective doctor advises IVF treatment to you. IVF or in vitro fertilisation is a type of treatment that facilitates a couple to become parents of a healthy and cute baby. Before moving to start the treatment, the doctor discloses everything such as process, risks, success factors, etc. to you. To educate yourself, know here what can affect the success or failure of your IVF treatment:   

1. Age

A woman's age is the biggest factor affecting the success of the IVF procedure. With a success rate of 60-65%, IVF is most successful for Indian women between the ages of 24 and 35. This is to be expected as this is the age at which women reach peak fertility. The level of income decreases with age. The quality and/or quantity of these women's eggs declines with age. So the decision of modern urban women to delay childbirth by 30 years plays an important role.

2. Types of infertility issues

IVF comes as a surprise to many couples who face common infertility problems. For example, problems such as endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes, PCOS in women and low sperm count, motility and morphology in men are usually easily resolved by IVF. Other problems, such as fibroids, uterine abnormalities, and ovarian dysfunction, are more difficult to treat with simple IVF and require different surgeries or donor programs. For male infertility, ICSI is the best option.

3. Early pregnancy

If a woman has gotten pregnant and given birth before, she is more likely to get pregnant through IVF/ICSI. On the other hand, women who have had multiple miscarriages may have trouble conceiving through IVF. In these cases, advanced ART methods such as PGT-A, PGT-M, PGT-SR and ERA can help.

4. Lifestyle

If one of you smokes a lot, there is a huge impact on your conception chances. Having a child goes down. As a coupole, you must quit smoking if you are trying to conceive or become pregnant. Anothermajor lifestyle factor that affects IVF success is body weight. Overweight or underweight women are less likely to get pregnant in comparison with women with a normal BMI. 

5. Fertility clinic

One of the biggest exterior factors that impact the success of IVF treatment can be the clinic that you choose. Many factors affecting the success of an IVF cycle are directly related to the infertility clinic and its expertise, protocols and techniques, from laboratory success rates to laboratory standards, air quality and embryologist experience.
