The prevalence of human infertility has been increasing. With the application of in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technologies, approximately 37% of patients can achieve pregnancies on their first

Factors Associated with In Vitro Fertilization Live Birth Outcome: A Comparison of Different Classification Methods

A successful delivery following IVF in infertile individuals is considerably affected by the number of embryos, number of injected oocytes, cause of infertility, female age, and PCOS.

Conditional and cumulative live birth rates after blastocyst transfer.

Fertility and neonatal outcomes of embryos achieving blastulation on Day 7: are they of clinical value?

Embryos that achieve blastulation on Day 7 resulted in clinically relevant rates of clinical pregnancy and live birth, and newborns have a similar risk of low birth weight, congenital malformations or early neonatal death compared with those derived from Days 5 and 6 blastocysts.

Endometrial scratch to increase live birth rates in women undergoing first-time in vitro fertilisation: RCT and systematic review.

The pooled results of this trial and of eight similar trials found no evidence of a significant effect of endometrial scratch in increasing live birth rate, as objective fertility outcomes were used.

Psychological consequences of IVF fertilization - Review of research.

There is a need to conduct studies on the effect of supportive social interactions for the functioning of couples undergoing IVF because studies indicate that partners going through IVF may not have enough support from their closest social environments.

Psychological consequences of IVF fertilization – Review of research

Introduction and objective. Due to the reported efficacy of in vitro fertilization (IVF) this method of dealing with infertility is increasing being used. Experiencing IVF can be a source of

Routine use of hysteroscopy before in-vitro fertilization: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

The current evidence is insufficient to support the routine use of hysteroscopy in both women scheduled for first IVF and women with recurrent IVF failure, and the overall effect estimates did not favour hysteroscope group.

To determine the chance of at least one live birth from one round of in‐vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment and the effect of the woman's age on that likelihood, a large number of women receive IVF treatment at a young age.

In‐vitro fertilization and embryo transfer: Prospects of pregnancy by life‐table analysis

It is suggested that treatment should consist of multiple laparoscopies and that improvements should be aimed at decreasing the morbidity, stress and cost of multiple attempts.

What is the probability of conception for couples entering an IVF program?

Summary: The outcome of 4225 couples undergoing 8207 in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles over a six year period has been analysed using life table analysis. Pregnancy was expressed as a ‘clinical

Reducing multiple pregnancy from assisted reproduction treatment: educating patients and medical staff

Adequate education, based on available evidence, is one important way to promote the use of SET in patients and clinicians.

Replacement of one selected embryo is just as successful as two embryo transfer, without the risk of twin pregnancy

A retrospective review of fresh embryo transfers between 2001 and 2003 shows that single embryo transfers have a similar pregnancy rate without the risk of multiple pregnancy.

Embryo culture media and IVF/ICSI success rates: a systematic review.

It is yet unknown what culture medium leads to the best success rates in IVF/ICSI, and rigorously designed RCTs are needed for currently available, as well as newly introduced culture media.

Cumulative live-birth rates after in vitro fertilization.

The results indicate that IVF may largely overcome infertility in younger women, but it does not reverse the age-dependent decline in fertility.

Number of embryos for transfer after IVF and ICSI: a Cochrane review.

Single embryo transfer significantly reduces the risk of multiple pregnancy, but also decreases the chance of live birth in a fresh IVF cycle, and subsequent replacement of a single frozen embryo achieves a live birth rate comparable with double embryo transfer.

Elective single-embryo transfer versus double-embryo transfer in in vitro fertilization

In women under 36 years of age, transferring one fresh embryo and then, if needed, one frozen-and-thawed embryo dramatically reduces the rate of multiple births while achieving a rate of live births that is not substantially lower than the rate that is achievable with a double-embryo transfer.
