Formula for an IVF baby
To help couples think about in-vitro fertilization, IVF, highly accurate prediction of the potential success can be given as a formula has been devised by British researchers for this.
The website that informs this says that soon couples will be able to discuss the pros and cons of the treatment as applications for iPhones and Android smart phones are coming soon.
For producing a statistical model that can give a prediction of live birth which is up to 99 per cent accurate, 144,000 IVF cycles were taken into account by scientists from the Universities of Glasgow and Bristol.
Number of years taken by a woman to get pregnant, her age, if her own eggs were being used by her, if she has had a baby before and the cause of infertility were taken into account for the formula.
IVF treatment in Britain is regulated by the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority and their data was taken into account by lead researcher Scott Nelson of the University of Glasgow.
The chances of having a live birth were assessed as they looked at all cycles carried out between 2003 and 2007.
