New Test to Improve Success Rate of IVF Pregnancies
A new test developed by British scientists could tell couples within 24 hours if they will ever be able to have a baby through IVF and improve success rates. It is hoped that a detailed analysis of the embryo will identify potential defects before it is transferred to the womb, speeding up the process and reducing the number that end in miscarriage or birth defects. And if the 24-hour tests show that a couple are unlikely ever to have a baby through IVF, it will also spare them the heartache of spending more time and money on further cycles.
