 Successful IVF Conception Low Among Women in Their Mid-30s

The chances of a successful conception through IVF in women fall significantly after they reach the age of 37 years, a new study conducted by researchers at University of Aberdeen reveals.

For the study, researchers examined data from 121,744 British women, who had undergone their first cycle of IVF between 2000 and 2007, the BBC reported.


The findings showed that expecting women aged 38-39 were 43 percent more likely to have a miscarriage than women aged 18-34, and women aged 40-42 were almost twice as likely to lose the baby as the younger age group.

Professor Siladitya Bhattacharya, of the Reproductive Medicine team at the university, said that the IVF treatment comprises a number of key steps, and they found that influence of age is sustained at each stage of the process.
