We can begin to imagine what some couples have to go through in order to have a child. Especially when one of the parents are infertile. In this situation, most parents to be would call upon in vitro fertilization. According to a new study, women recede from IVF too soon.
When it comes to in vitro fertilization every couple is aware that the procedure has high chances of returning no results. And it falls upon them to take the decision when to pull the plug.
Moreover, their decision is also fueled by fertilization specialists, who choose to discontinue procedure after several failed attempts. Usually, after four or five attempts, the doctors would deem the chances of a couple to have a child as being null.
But, it would seem that the odds are in their favor. According to a new study, conducted by several fertilization specialists, it would seem that women recede from IVF too soon. The medical researchers have determined that women give up to easily and they have a large volume of data in order to confirm their claims.
During their research endeavor, the team of researcher analyzed the medical records of over 150000. According to their statements, it would seem that in the last decades approximately 250000 in vitro fertilization procedures have been performed all around the country.
According to their determinations, for an IVF procedure to yield results, a total number of 9 fertilization cycles must be performed. Actually, their conclusion is not to be construed as a guideline for parents to be.
The medical researchers wanted to stress out that the probability of a live birth increases with the number of attempts. In order to come up with these numbers, the researchers have used a different method of counting.
Thus, instead of counting every embryo transfer to the womb, they went out to count out the total number of successful attempts when it came to stimulating the ovaries and retrieving them.
As the number would roll out, lead researcher Andrew Smith declared that 3 or 4 fertilization attempts are insufficient and that women recede from treatment too soon. Based on the team’s projections, it would seem that a woman’s chance of a successful IVF procedure increases by 69 percent at the end of the 9th IVF cycle.
Taking into account the new data on the subject, it is highly probable that women who chose to put an end to the procedure might have lost hope too easily. On the other hand, it gives future couple perspective when it comes to artificial fertilization.
