Many factors determine whether a couple will become pregnant, but a woman’s age is near the top of the list. At 21, when a woman is at peak fertility and 90% of her eggs are normal, her chance of conceiving is highest. It reduces with age and dips rather drastically after the age of 36.
Typical IUI success rates across the world, for all age groups and at all hospitals is between 10% and 17% per cycle. At GarbhaGudi, we have had amazing success in IUI. Over all branches and across the last few years, we have seen a success rate from 22% to 31%. We attribute this to patented process enhancements we have made.
Success rates in IVF is dependent on several key factors. Across the world, IVF success rate is in the range of 30% to 37%. We have been consistently reporting in the range of 55% to 67% success across all our centres. These rates are even higher for donor embryo cycles and blastocyst transfer cycles.
The age and general health of the woman. This includes ovarian reserve, hormone levels and her general body conditions – diabetes, hypertension, thyroid profile, stress levels etc.
The stimulation protocol that is used. Based on the expertise of the fertility specialist, the protocol may be more effective or less effective.
Based on the manufacturing facility, the quality controls imposed and the process followed, different injections may give different results in similar situations. So it is preferable to go for the best injections and best IVF media for the process.
This plays a key role, especially the operation theatre where the egg pick up is done and the embryology lab where the fertilization through IVF or ICSI is done. If these are not maintained as per the best of standards, then success rates dip drastically.
The fertility specialist, the embryologist, the andrology lab in-charge and the support staff, all play a very important role.
GarbhaGudi scores very high on all the above five points. We have the best of infrastructure, an eminent panel of specialists who have handled thousands of IVF cycles, we use the best injections and media (no compromise on the quality of medicines and media) and we continuously upgrade our treatment protocols to adopt the latest enhancements in technology. This is the reason why our success rates have been phenomenal.
