6 Ways IVF Helps Infertile Couples

IVF is commonly referred to as “the last stop” on the infertility track in the realm of infertility. What most people are not sure of is that for many infertile couples, or for those for whom traditional conception and pregnancy are not an option. 

In Vitro Fertilization: 6 Advantages 

Here are 6 ways that IVF can dramatically improve a couple’s chances of having a successful pregnancy and delivery.

  1. Chances of having a healthy baby

A powerful piece of technology called genetic screening can help you make sure your child is healthy at birth. You may make sure the fetuses utilized during IVF are devoid of known genetic markers by using genetic screening. 

These may be connected to potentially fatal medical diseases such as cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, sickle cell anemia, and Tay Sachs disease. The tests are not performed at random, but rather if the mother and/or father test positively for these conditions or if there is a history of major genetic illnesses in the family.

  1. It can be used by anybody

In-vitro fertilization is not just for the mother of the baby; it can also be used by gestational or surrogate carriers, allowing a variety of people to become parents and take part in the pregnancy and labor process. 

This infertility treatment covers, same-sex relationships, women who are unable physically to bear a child to term, and single women.

  1. IVF succeeds when other infertility therapies fall short

Before reaching the IVF “station,” individuals may undergo a variety of reproductive therapies, including intrauterine insemination, fertility drugs, and more.

 These include infertility diagnoses including blocked fallopian tubes, severe male infertility factor, diminished ovarian reserves, and/or advanced maternal age (usually any woman above the age of 38).

  1. Using donated sperm or eggs is an option

The use of donated eggs and/or sperm is occasionally advised by fertility doctors. In certain circumstances, the egg can be manually fertilized in the lab and the resulting healthy embryo can be utilized for IVF, increasing your chances of becoming pregnant the first time or the second time.

  1. Reduce The Possibility Of A Miscarriage

A genetic anomaly, which makes the body naturally end the pregnancy, is the most typical cause for miscarriage. Females have a higher probability of having a healthy pregnancy and carrying the baby to term if PGT is used to assess an embryo’s genetic viability before fertilization.

  1. Increase the chances of conception

 Out of all the assisted reproductive techniques, IVF with PGD has the best success rate. If necessary, further cycles can be employed to improve a woman’s chances of fertilization, a healthy pregnancy, and a live birth. You may make sure the fetuses utilized during IVF.


Some people may not agree with the thought of choosing some embryos and possibly eliminating others. Consider your position and what would make you comfortable before beginning treatment. 

If you are unhappy with the development of many embryos, we can support your decision by using Natural Cycle IVF or by freezing extra eggs rather than fertilizing them to produce embryos.
