How likely am I to get pregnant with In Vitro Fertilization?

Pregnancy and In Vitro Fertilization

Are you thinking about the chances of pregnancy with the help of an assisted reproductive technique and you don't know how effective they are, or which one is the most suitable for you? Next we will talk about in vitro fertilization, one of the most prominent and most successful treatments in our patients.

What elements influence the probability of success of in vitro fertilization?

The probabilities of achieving a pregnancy through the different assisted reproductive techniques vary according to different circumstances, in the case of in vitro fertilization there are several factors that influence the probability of final pregnancy. 

In vitro fertilization is indicated for patients with more serious infertility problems such as women with low ovarian reserve, obstructed fallopian tubes or with tubal ligation (pomeroy), moderate or severe male factor and in unsuccessful cases of artificial insemination.

These are some of the factors to consider:

It is important to carry out a good preliminary study to identify any pathology that is affecting the fertility of the patient, in this way to know how to act and if it is really feasible to start an in vitro fertilization process.Another factor and one of those that most affects our population is the woman's age, since this has a direct impact on her ovarian reserve and therefore on the number of eggs that we can obtain.

In this sense, the number of ovules is very important since the possibilities of obtaining more embryos with which several attempts can be made will depend on these.

However, the quality of the embryos is a very important factor since the success of in vitro fertilization depends on them.

In the cases of patients who require the help of donor eggs, the fertilization success rate remains between 50 and 70%, taking into account oocyte quality.

Although oocyte quality is crucial to achieve pregnancy, good endometrial quality is necessary.

Other factors to consider may be:


  1. The time in which pregnancy has not been achieved naturally, that is, maintaining sexual relations with normal semen and regular menstrual periods, can be a symptom of male or female sterility.

  2. Sperm quality in terms of mobility, percentage of normal sperm, or genetic factors, among other issues related to semen, are key when having a baby naturally.

  3. The clinical history is very important to identify if the patient has had failed reproductive cycles, a history of miscarriages, or the presence of other pathologies such as endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, uterine malformations, among others, since these can cause sterility .

In this sense, there are many circumstances that play an important role in the chances of getting pregnant with in vitro fertilization , and it is possible to find millions of results on the internet, but it is important to remember that each case and medical history is different.
