Beginning an IVF cycle is an exciting and anxious time for a couple.
Prospective parents considering in vitro fertilization -- a costly procedure that fertilizes eggs before placing them in the uterus -- often want to know about the process and what are the chances of success.
Researchers now say the rate is between 65 and 86 percent for women under 40 and 23 to 42 percent for women past that age.
According to a news release on the study, each IVF cycle consists of four steps: First, the patient takes a course of fertility medication to encourage egg development. Eggs are then retrieved through a minor surgical procedure. The retrieved eggs are then fertilized in the laboratory and implanted in the woman's uterus.
Taking in all women in the study -- regardless of age, number of times going through IVF or other factors -- the study found that even a conservative analysis showed 51 percent would get pregnant. A more optimistic reading of the numbers shows a 72 percent success rate.
It is found that 27 percent of the women had twins and 2 percent had triplets. There were not cases of more than three babies being born, which now is becoming less common.
