There is a lot of debate on success rate of IVF. This is because there are centers that promises 100% success rate without explaining the nuances.
The Success rate of IVF with same cycle transfer is 38% worldwide. In case of IVF with FET or IVF with donor eggs, the Success rates can be improved to 45-50%.

  • Which means the chances of conception in first attempt is between 35-50% depending on the type of IVF treatment done.
  • The chance of a couple conceiving in two attempts can be 85%
  • The chance of a couple conceiving in three attempts is 95%

Again there is a confusion between success rate of IVF and take home baby rate. IVF success rate doesn’t take into account any factors post implantation like miscarriage, chemical pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy etc. But Take home baby rate does take this into account.

The take home baby rate or the live birth rate for each IVF cycle started is approximately:
  • 32-37% for women under age 35
  • 28-33% for women ages 35 to 37
  • 23-27% for women ages 38 to 40
  • 13-18% for women ages over 40
Are the procedures available that can increase the IVF success rates?

Yes there are a number of procedures available that can increase the standard IVF success rate by another 10-40%
