PREDICTORS OF IN VITRO FERTILIZATION THERAPY (IVF) SUCESS

The specialists in the field of reproductive medicine have proposed numerous predictors of in vitro fertilization therapy (IVF) success over the last years.

 

The factors that are commonly used to estimate efficacy of subsequent IVF attempts Include age, reproductive history, markers of ovarian function, and a patient’s response to ovarian stimulation.

 

One of the most difficult challenges facing physicians who perform Assisted Reproduction Therapies (ART) is the task of appropriately counseling patients regarding their chances of success after a failed IVF cycle. The physician must also weigh the desire of the patients against the probability of success to arrive at an ethical recommendation.

 

Clinical experience over the last years supports the notion that a successful IVF cycle bodes well for future attempts, while a cycle that results in cancellation appears to correlate with poor reproductive potential.  

 

Each Assisted Reproduction Therapies ART program should quantify its own parameters of success or failure in every patient that is been applied.

 

The goal of the specialist should be to determine with reasonable certainty the chances of success with each treatment “cycle”.
