On the eve of New Year celebrations, couples who are trying to get pregnant should feel elated about exploring the joy of parenthood through multiple treatment options. With the latest advancements in medical technology particularly in the field of assisted reproductive technologies, IVF treatment has made it much easier for couples with fertility issues to fulfill their dream of having a family. In this blog, we will let you know why 2016 is the best time to go for IVF.
1. High Success rates than they were two decades ago
When IVF was introduced in the year 1978, with the birth of Louise Brown, and in the succeeding years, a pregnancy rate of around 15-20 percent was a wonderful thing. Nowadays, the success rate in IVF treatment has increased up to 50-60 percent. IVF specialists have become much better at culturing embryos outside the body.
2. New screening tools and techniques about selection of embryos has revolutionized the industry
For many years, a slow freezing technique was used in IVF treatment. But a new technique called vitrification is used nowadays by which embryos freezes quickly, which prevents the formation of ice crystals within the embryo that could damage it. This gives the patient almost the same chance of becoming pregnant from a frozen embryo as from a fresh one.
3. Some couples build a family from just one IVF cycle
Most of the couples fall pregnant from the fresh cycle and then the other embryos that are frozen often go on to be their second and third children. It’s has been revolutionary for couples to build a family like that.
4. Freezing of eggs is much easier than earlier
Earlier, it was very difficult to freeze unfertilized eggs as the success rate was not even 10 percent. But the latest technology-vitrification has made it very successful. This allows woman to store their eggs for future use.
