There are several factors that influence IVF success rates. Some of these are described below:
- is the most important factor for the success of IVF. Patients under 35 years old have the best prognosis. The success rates in women over 43 years are less than 5%..
- Antimullerian hormone (AMH)
- is not a direct factor but does affect the cumulative pregnancy rate. Having a lower AMH does not mean you have a lower success rate for a single IVF attempt. Having a high AMH makes it easier to have a higher cumulative pregnancy rate. The cumulative pregnancy rate is obtained after transferring all the frozen embryos that have been generated from an IVF cycle.
- Toxic substances
- patients who are smokers have a worse pregnancy rate than non-smoking patients.
- has been found to be a negative influence on the pregnancy rate.
Apart from these factors, there are numerous studies that indicate that patients following Mediterranean diet have a better outcome in IVF cycles. In addition, moderate exercise has also been shown to improve IVF results.
