Why has IVF been recommended for us?

Why has IVF been recommended for us? IVF is the best treatment available in a number of fertility problems where a couple is very unlikely to conceive naturally. If your tubes are blocked, the eggs and sperm will not meet naturally. In IVF the eggs and sperm are mixed together in the laboratory bypassing any tubal blockage. In cases of a severely abnormal semen analysis the chance of natural conception is extremely low but by using IVF the chance of pregnancy is increased by at least 10 times.

IVF is also recommended if other fertility treatments have failed or in cases of prolonged infertility if you have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for more than two years.

You will need IVF if:
  • You have been trying to conceive for two years.
  • The woman’s tubes are blocked.
  • The sperm analysis results are not good.
  • Other fertility treatments have failed.

What are our chances of getting pregnant with IVF?

The chance of conceiving depends on a number of factors including the woman’s age, the length of time a couple has been trying to conceive and whether they’ve had any previous pregnancies. The doctor will advise you of your chance of success based on your own unique situation. There is a useful online tool which uses real outcome data collected by the HFEA to allow you to predict your chance of pregnancy.

Your chance of getting pregnant depends on a variety of factors and your individual circumstances.
