In IVF treatment, the level of response of the ovaries varies greatly when women take the injectable FSH drugs for ovarian stimulation. This leads to the range of eggs being retrieved at the egg retrieval procedure. Before we have stimulated the woman with the FSH containing drugs, astral follicle counts are the best predictor of the response that the ovaries will give and the number of eggs that will be retrieved.
The main factors affecting IVF outcome include the following:
- Age of the woman (and consequently her ovarian reserve)
- Normalcy of the uterus and semen quality
- Success or failure of fertilization and cleavage in vitro
- Number of embryones transferred and cryopreserved
- Adequacy of the luteal phase after transfer
- Individual body lifestyle and response
In addition to all these factors, the success rates increase as the number of IVF stimulation attempts increase, probably ranging to a maximum of three to four stimulation cycle.
