IVF Success Rate
An Australia national wide study of IVF success rate reveals the over all chance of all age group of women delivering a liveborn baby was 21.1% after the first cycle, increasing to 31.1% after two cycles, 36% after three cycles, 38.6% after four cycles, and 40% after five cycles.
This study done by University of New South Wale was based on newly released statistics (2009-11) from 35 fertility centres. But less than 0.7% extra chance of pregnant for the sixth to seventh cycle of IVF.(1)
Prepare well first before IVF
The chance of success increased if couples persevere their attempts, but it could be financially hardship, physically and emotionally straining for them.
That’s why I always recommend couples should prepare them well first before starting IVF Or after failed IVF cycles to start again. The aim of the preparation is to go fewer IVF cycles to to achieve their dream of having a baby and ensure 100% effort into each IVF cycle to maximize the chances.
The preparation precess could take up to 3 months or more depending on each individual’s condition. Also, as the eggs which will be retrieved for IVF cycle spend several months developing in the ovaries. To optimize the outcome, a good preparation should includes a heathy diet, regular exercise, stress management, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments.
In my acupuncture and Chinese Medicine practice, my focus is always on successful outcomes for patients. Every couple is unique and the causes of infertility are also different. I analysis each individual’s fertility challenges and treat them with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine accordingly.
Once the challenges and imbalances resolved, the chance of successful IVF are greater. It’s not uncommon to see couples conceive naturally while preparing for IVF with my treatments.
