12 Nov How Realistic are Statistics in Fertility Treatments?
In Turkey, according to the data provided by the Ministry of Health in 2015, there are more than 140 licensed IVF centers. Considering that more than half of these centers were opened in the last 7-8 years, it is notable that the services they provide and the success rates differ significantly.
The first procedure to confirm pregnancy is the hormone test performed 12-15 days after the transfer of the embryos to the uterus, or the heartbeats heard in the first ultrasound examination performed after 3-4 weeks. Many couples may think that they will certainly have children after the result of this test. However, in order to think of a successful result in the treatment of IVF, the couple should be able to deliver their healthy babies. This rate, expressed as the “delivery of healthy baby” rate, is the most important numerical indicator showing the real success of the centers that offer IVF treatment. This is because, there are also lots of centers which performs relatively low “delivery of healthy baby” rate although it displays satisfying pregnancy rates after hormone testings.
Another mistake that is generally made when evaluating success rates of a center is to consider the results, which is obtained by interviewee or physician, over patient populations with a high chance of success. In fact, both the pregnancy rate and the rate of “delivery of healthy baby” during the treatment of IVF can vary, considering the conditions such as the age of the woman during treatment, ovarian reserve, sperm quality, the presence of previous trials and being a carrier of a genetic disease. The most important issue to consider when evaluating the success rates of a center where couples will be treated is the realistic pregnancy and “delivery of healthy baby” rates given to them.
