Age Not a Key Factor in IVF Success, Study Shows
A study has found that some women aged 40 could have the same or better chances of having a baby via fertility treatment as a woman in her early thirties. The findings will be used for a new test, which will assess up to 20 factors affecting fertility before giving couples a percentage rating of their chance of having a baby via IVF. Although many of the factors which affect fertility are closely associated with aging, biological age itself is not the best predictor of success or failure, according to the results of the study - which analyzed the outcomes of more than 5,000 IVF treatments.
