Infertility means the inability to conceive even after one year (or longer) of unprotected sexual intercourse. If you are struggling to get pregnant, you’re not alone. A large number of people are battling infertility. Various factors such as stress, uterine fibroids, impaired sperm production, blocked fallopian tubes, low ovarian reserve, endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and premature ovarian failure, can lead to infertility. But, In Vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment at the right age can be helpful for couples.

Age for IVF treatment matters. Couples who opt for the treatment in their early 30s have high chances of successful conception compared to couples in their later 30s because as they get older, the chances will reduce with time.

This revolutionary treatment is helping couples deal with infertility.

Here are various advantages of taking IVF treatment at the right age:

1. It will cut down the risk of a miscarriage

Genetic abnormalities are one of the more frequent causes of miscarriage. Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) can be done in conjunction with IVF to determine in advance whether an embryo is genetically viable, assisting a woman in having a healthy pregnancy. What are you still holding out for? If you have been instructed to begin your IVF treatment immediately, do so.

2. It will help you have a healthy baby

The preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) on the embryo before it is transferred to the woman’s uterus will help one to deliver a healthy baby. There are two different kinds, such as PGT-A (preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy) and PGT-M (preimplantation genetic testing for monogenetic defects). PGT-A looks for an abnormal number of chromosomes in the embryo. PGT-M is done to know the risk for a specific inherited genetic condition like cystic fibrosis or Tay-Sachs Disease.

3. It can improve one’s chances of conception

IVF is a highly controlled process wherein only selected good quality eggs are used. And women in their 30s produce a good number of eggs. So, this treatment at an advanced age can raise one’s chances of becoming pregnant.

4. It can help you to become pregnant at the chosen time

Those who wish to focus on their careers can use IVF techniques if they want a baby in the later stages of life. Eggs or embryos can be cryopreserved for future use too. Also, you can choose a window of time when you want to be pregnant. Thus, it can be easy for you to become pregnant.
