IVF in numbers: Success rates, Number of babies born & Cost
- Published on July 25, 2022
Experiencing infertility brings a lot of emotions to the couple, it surely is a tough period as it gives us a series of flashes and impressions where we start wondering millions of questions about not being able to reach conception through the natural process. We start undermining our abilities and doubt ourselves. Infertility can surely lead to psychological-emotional disorders.
Infertility can cause frustration, anxiety, depression, guilt, and turmoil and make the couple feel worthless. But this shouldn’t be the case, in the present century, medical research has become more and more intense and many new discoveries and researches are being conducted in the field of medical science.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of IVF and understand more about its success rates, and the number of babies born through IVF, let us first start by understanding the history of IVF. The history of IVF goes back to the year 1978 when the world’s first baby was conceived through IVF. Since then, the IVF process has been through many refinements and today millions of couples are opting for IVF when they are not able to conceive after a year of trying.
If you are considering IVF to grow your family? Let us look at IVF by the numbers:
No of IVF babies: More than 80 lakhs test tube babies born (from IVF) since the birth of Louise Brown, 40 years ago. IVF surely provides relief to couples who were not being able to conceive for years. Every wishful couple brings back their lost hope and faith when they finally decide to pursue IVF. All they want to hear is the “good news”.
The numbers help to estimate that more than half a million babies are born each year from IVF treatment and ICSI, from more than 2 million treatment cycles conducted.
The success of IVF varies on many factors, but the age of the woman is one of the most important factors to consider especially when she is using her own eggs for conceiving.
If a woman is above 35 then her chances of conceiving also start to decrease and the risk of miscarriage increases. There were times when people were not even aware of the word IVF and therefore, were not clear what could be done when they were not able to conceive naturally. In today’s time, people are well aware of the benefits of IVF and all how it can help couples bring back that lost hope. The ratio of IVF success in India has started to increase, it ranges between 30-35 % after the embryo transfer. There can be times when the couple is not able to conceive after the first cycle and may have to try for a second cycle for conceiving. This journey of IVF can take a toll on health, both emotionally and financially.
