A lot of times women who opt for assisted methods of achieving pregnancy are disappointed because the treatments do not have positive results. A successful IVF cycle depends on a lot of factors.
Not every day is a good day for your IVF procedure to take place.
Recurrent implantation failure (RIF) is the inability to achieve an artificial or a clinical pregnancy after transfer of at least four or five good-quality embryos in a woman under the age of 40 years. Recurrent implantation failure is an important cause of repeated IVF failure throughout the world.
The correct “window of implantation” is critical. It is the time when your body is most receptive to the pregnancy. It is crucial for you to be in this phase to ensure a successful pregnancy. About 28% of the IVF cycles are done on the wrong day and a personalised window of implantation can increase your chances of a successful pregnancy by 60%. Endometrial Receptivity Analysis (ERA) test identifies the patient’s personalized Window of Implantation (WOI), which is the estimated the day on which embryo transfer will be successful.
Successful Implantation can still lead to a miscarriage.
A ray of hope for long expecting couples going through IVF suddenly fades away with a miscarriage. There are many cases of a failed IVF cycle where the implantation was successful. Couples opt of IVF due to various reasons such as a low sperm count commonly termed as male factor infertility, PCOS or other hormonal disorders in women leading to a decline in fertility or the age factor due to which they are unable to conceive naturally. These factors also impact the quality of the egg and sperm. A poor quality egg or sperm may lead to a weak embryo which carrier chromosomal abnormalities. A weak embryo may not successfully implant in the first place or even if it does, there are greater chances it will miscarry.
It is therefore critical to choose the right embryo to implant. Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) and MitoScore does just that. It helps identifying embryos which are chromosomally normal and have a greater chance of not only a successful pregnancy but also a healthy baby.
