For couples facing fertility issues, IVF is one of the methods to have children. Typically, this fertility treatment is chosen when other methods like natural conception or intrauterine insemination (IUI) have not been successful.

Factors of IVF Success
The success rate of IVF varies from person to person, depending on individual conditions.

The younger the mother, the higher the chances of IVF success because age determines egg quality. Younger mothers typically have better egg quality. However, if the mother has endometriosis or other conditions like small eggs, it can affect egg quality.
One crucial factor for IVF success is a healthy lifestyle. Reduce fatty foods, cut back on carbohydrates, consume nutritious foods rich in fiber and protein to support the success of the pregnancy program.
Uterine condition also plays a crucial role in the success factor. It’s essential to evaluate whether there are polyps or infections that may not be visible on ultrasound but can be supported by hysteroscopy examination.
One crucial aspect is the father’s factors. Never neglect the examination from the father’s side because optimal sperm quality is essential for pregnancy. Conduct sperm analysis and DNA fragmentation tests to ensure the quantity and quality of sperm. Both sides should be in excellent condition.
That’s an explanation of some of the factors supporting the success of IVF that can assist in your planned IVF journey. If you’re considering IVF, consult with a doctor promptly.
