Personalized Predictions of IVF Success

Written in partnership with Univfy, December 16, 2013

IVF success depends on a number of factors: A woman’s age, ovarian reserve, body mass index (BMI), her reproductive and health history, and her male partner’s sperm parameters, among others. With all these factors to take into account, how do you know what your chance for success with IVF will be?

Knowing your chances of IVF success can help you make the right fertility treatment and financial decisions. For instance, if your chances are high, you may want to opt for a single cycle, instead of a multicycle package from your clinic, even at a per-cycle discount.

Understanding IVF Success Helps Manage IVF Costs

Written in partnership with Univfy, December 9, 2013

IVF is expensive, with cycles ranging from $12,000 to $15,000 on average. And that doesn’t include the cost of fertility drugs, or add-ons, such as ICSI, PGD, and embryo storage.

The good news is there are ways to save on IVF: shopping around, buying a multi-cycle discount package, participating in a refund guarantee program, or doing low stim or mini IVF, which comes with a lower price tag. Another way to save on IVF costs is by understanding your chance of IVF success: what chance your cycle will result in the birth of a baby.

Almost Pregnant? Utilizing Technology to Improve the True In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Pregnancy Rate in Chicago

a blog by Reproductive Medicine Institute- Chicago, November 27, 2013

A recent article by Stranger JD & Yovich JL raises a very important issue that might assist patients in deciding if in vitro fertilization (IVF) is for them. The issue raised by the article is how to report pregnancy rates for an IVF cycle. Should the rate be calculated based upon just the fresh transfer of embryos or should it be the pregnancy rate based upon the total number of eggs retrieved from a cycle of IVF? (Reprod Biomed Online (2013) 27:286).
