With the significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility in recent decades, about 65% of couples suffering from infertility problems have been able to have a baby through therapies.
Several factors affect the success rate of infertility treatment such as; the IVF treatment methods and woman’s age.
Woman’s age has many impacts on her ability to have childbearing, especially if her age lower than the 30s. Chance of fertility is 40% for a healthy woman in her 20s or early 30s, but this chance is reduced at age 40s to 10% or less.
The couple’s lifestyle has a significant effect on the success of fertility treatment methods, for example, couples who stopped smoking at least 3 months prior to treatment have a higher success rate while couples who smoked had to try twice as hard for success at fertility.
