IVF or In Vitro Fertilization works for most couples where the female partner is under 40 years of age. Sometimes it doesn’t. Fortunately, with chromosome screening of embryos or Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS), available at the top fertility clinics in Los Angeles, such as Pacific Reproductive Center, the embryo abnormalities can be ruled out.
Chromosomally normal embryos can be selected before transfer into a woman’s uterus during IVF. This increases the likelihood of pregnancy. If the woman still doesn’t become pregnant, it is more likely due to otherreasons, not the embryo.
A chromosomally normal embryo does not implant in about a quarter of all cases and it miscarries in about 15% cases.
The question is why a woman would not get pregnant even after putting a chromosomally-normal embryo into her uterus. There are several reasons that can be responsible for this –
- uterine polyps
- uterine fibroids inside the cavity
- untreated hydrosalpinx
- uterine infection
- thyroid disease
All these conditions are manageable, but there may be some cases of unexplained infertility.Your doctor may advise endometrial testing prior to the embryo transfer to ensure conditions in the uterus are conducive to implantation and successful pregnancy. Any deficiencies can be treated.
