10 high-risk factors that can decrease success your of vitro fertilization (IVF)

1. *Advanced Maternal Age:*

Women over the age of 35 have a higher risk of complications during pregnancy and lower IVF success rates.

2. *Diminished Ovarian Reserve:*

A decreased number of eggs or poor egg quality can reduce the chances of successful IVF.

3. *Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS):*

PCOS can affect hormone levels and ovulation, making IVF more challenging.

4. *Endometriosis:*

This condition can lead to pelvic scarring and affect the function of the fallopian tubes, potentially reducing IVF success.

5. *Uterine Fibroids:*

Large or multiple fibroids in the uterus can interfere with embryo implantation.

6. *Tubal Factor Infertility:*

Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes can necessitate IVF but may also increase the risk of ectopic pregnancies.

7. *Male Factor Infertility:*

Male infertility issues, such as low sperm count or poor sperm quality, can affect IVF success rates.

8. *Obesity:*

Excess body weight can lead to hormonal imbalances and interfere with fertility treatments, including IVF.

9. *Multiple Failed IVF Cycles:*

Repeated unsuccessful IVF attempts may indicate underlying fertility issues that can be high-risk.

10. *Pre-existing Medical Conditions:*

Conditions like diabetes, hypertension, or autoimmune disorders can complicate IVF treatment and pregnancy.

It’s essential to consult with a reproductive specialist who can assess your individual risk factors and develop a personalized treatment plan that takes these factors into account. While these conditions may increase the risk associated with IVF, advances in fertility medicine have improved the chances of successful outcomes even in high-risk cases.
