IVF is one of the most commonly used assisted reproductive technique.


Especially of female partner has very very important role to play in IVF treatment . Number of eggs in each ovary is fixed since birth and once the puberty is attained , one follicle out of few reach dominance, ovulate . So every cycle eggs reduces in number and by the time woman reaches 35 or beyond number of eggs are reduced considerably . Beside number of eggs ,the quality of eggs also start getting deteriorated genetically .

Chances of miscarriage, birth defects , and failure of IVF increases with age.

Its said age does not affect man much, but there are papers and studies stating that with the increasing age of man, hormone testosterone start reducing which may reduce the number and motility of sperm and increasing rate of DNA fragmentation seen in sperm resulting in birth defects and chromosomal abnormalities.

A basic understanding of how age affects fertility is very important for both partners so that they can plan for pregnancy without delaying for social,educational or professional reasons.

Fallopian tubes unhealthy or blocked

We all know function of fallopian tubes is to pick up the egg after ovulation and transfer to mid tube where sperm fertilize the egg and then the developing embryo reaches uterus where implantation takes place and pregnancy grow.

If the tubes are unhealthy or dilated then fetility reduces or chances of pregnancy ( ectopic pregnancy ) in the tube increases. If the tubes are severely damaged or blocked then without wasting time decide to go for IVF .

Unexplained Infertility

When all the basic test reports are normal and patient has failed intrauterine insemination cycles then move on for IVF as the tubes may not be functional or there may be problem in fertilization.

Women with low AMH or poor egg reserve should not waste time and plan for IVF to have better pregnancy outcome .

To prepare yourself mentally and emotionally is equally important as IVF is not 100 percent . If you are mentally prepared then you are less stressed out and this improves the success rate also .
