It’s important to learn about IVF success rates before getting started with treatment
There are a variety of factors that can affect IVF success rates for patients at our Tennessee fertility center. Often, one of the most significant indicators of IVF success is a patient’s age. SART success rates show that women younger than 35 typically have the highest success rates, but this number drops as women near age 40. While age is important, working with a fertility specialist is the best way for a patient to determine their chance of having a successful IVF cycle.
Many factors can affect IVF success rates
There are many factors that can affect a patient’s IVF success rates. The physicians at our Tennessee fertility center help patients develop a better understanding of their chance of IVF success.
Egg quality. Women with low-quality eggs might have a more difficult time using their own eggs to become pregnant during an IVF cycle. In some cases, the doctor might recommend the woman utilize an egg donor.
Uterine health. Uterine issues, such as polyps or fibroids, anatomical abnormalities and other conditions that can interfere with implantation, can impact success rates.
Embryo transfer. Whether a patient chooses to have a fresh or frozen embryo transfer can affect the success of the IVF cycle. The patient’s doctor should work closely with the patient to determine whether a fresh or frozen transfer is best for the patient’s unique needs.
Sperm health. Issues with sperm like abnormal shape, poor mobility, inability to attach to the head of the egg and a low sperm count can influence the success of IVF.
Because the IVF protocol that a clinic uses can affect success rates, it’s important for women to seek care at a clinic with highly qualified specialists who are well–versed in the latest fertility treatments.
How we improve SART success rates
Our Tennessee fertility center strives to increase a patient’s IVF success rates by providing a combination of experienced physicians and embryologists who utilize the most advanced laboratory technologies.
Quality fertility specialists. The doctors at our clinic utilize comprehensive tests to help ensure they make the right infertility diagnosis. They then use their knowledge of the latest research to develop a treatment plan that utilizes the most effective IVF protocols.
Leading-edge assisted reproductive technology (ART) lab and expert staff. We partner with Ovation® Fertility to ensure we have pristine labs staffed by highly experienced embryologists and lab technicians. We also utilize leading-edge laboratory technologies, such as preimplantation genetic testing, ICSI and the “flash freezing” method of vitrification to cryopreserve embryos.
High-quality donors. Patients unable to use their own eggs during an IVF cycle can benefit from the support of our high-quality donors. We carefully screen donors for physical, genetic and psychological health.
These features allow us to provide a high level of care that helps us maintain our positive success rates. This often leads to patients fulfilling their dream of parenthood. Contact us for more information about our fertility services.
