IVF Calculator to Predict Chances of Pregnancy

The IVF calculator which can be used by doctors or people seeking fertility treatment, can estimate a couples chance of having a baby before and after first IVF treatment, and over multiple cycles.

Writing in The BMJ, researchers led by the University of Aberdeen describe how the calculator could "help to shape couples expectations".

It takes into account the age of a woman, how many years she has been trying to conceive, whether she has an ovulation problem, an unexplained fertility issue or whether there is a male fertility problem among other factors.

The tool is based on data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) which collects information on all licensed fertility treatments in the UK.

The researchers analysed data from all women who started IVF and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in the UK from 1999 to 2008 using their own eggs and partners sperm.

They found that of 114,000 women who completed almost 185,000 cycles of treatment, 29.1 percent had a live birth following their first cycle. And 43 percent had a baby following six cycles of treatment.

They found that the chances of a couple having a baby declined after the woman reached the age of 30 and decreased with increasing duration of infertility. The data was then put into the calculator to predict IVF success.
