Factors Affecting IVF Success 

There are many factors affecting IVF success. Your ability to conceive with in vitro fertilization (IVF) can be impacted by age, types of fertility problems you are experiencing, lifestyle choices, and more. At Los Angeles Reproduction CenterDr. Nurit Winkler and Dr. Marc Kalan approach every IVF patient with an individualized treatment plan, set appropriate expectations, provide you with thorough education through open communication, and operate at the highest standards to maximize your chances of a successful outcome. Our offices are conveniently located in Bakersfield, Encino, Thousand Oaks and Los Angeles, CA.

Your Age

Younger women have a higher chance of becoming pregnant than older women. According to statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 12 percent of women between 18 and 44 experience difficulty becoming pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to term. Approximately one-third of couples in which the woman is over 35 experience fertility issues.

Previous Pregnancies 

If you have been pregnant in the past, you have a good chance of becoming pregnant with IVF. However, women who have not previously conceived also may have an excellent chance of conception with fertility treatments. 

We will always work with you to choose the best course of treatment for your needs so you can optimize your chances for a healthy pregnancy.

Type of Fertility Issue You Experience

There are many different types of fertility issues. Some of the issues vest rerated by IVF are: tubal factor, sperm (male) factor, diminished ovarian reserve, and unexplained infertility.

Lifestyle Habits

Both smoking and obesity can affect your chances of IVF success. Smoking can decrease sperm count and cause erectile dysfunction, while carrying extra weight can strain your overall health. Underweight women may also experience difficulty becoming pregnant through IVF, so it is important to maintain a healthy weight.
