Will a second attempt at IVF be worth the effort?

Will a second attempt at IVF be worth the effort
WHEN IVF treatment fails, should you call it quits or try again? This tough decision could become a little easier, say Prajna Banerjee at Stanford University School of Medicine in California and colleagues, who have developed a model that can better predict the likelihood that a second IVF treatment will succeed.

Doctors typically use the woman's age as the main factor in predicting the likely outcome of IVF, but this can be unreliable. To improve on this method, Banerjee's team used clinical and embryo data from over 1600 IVF patients to identify the most influential factors determining whether a live birth will be achieved the second time around.

"While age is a major driving force towards decreased fertility, it does not have the highest importance once you have the embryo data," says Mylene Yao, who co-authored the paper. The team found the most influential factors included the number of cells that developed into early stage embryos, the thickness of the womb lining, and body mass index. When these factors were used together, the model was markedly better at predicting likely success of subsequent treatments than age-based predictions.
IVF is expensive and also carries physical and emotional costs, so many people struggle with the decision over a second attempt. "Understanding their probability of having a live birth, based on their very own clinical data, may serve to support that decision," says Yao

اللّهمّ إنّي أشكو إليك ضعفَ قوّتي، و قلّة حيلتي، وهواني على النّاس
يا أرحم الرّاحمين
أنت ربّ المستضعفين، وربّــي، إلى من تكلني .. إلى بعيد يتجهّمني، أم إلى عدوٍّ ملّكته أمري ..

Sorry, but I did not understand what you mean by body mass index ?
You mean the quality of embryos ? Rolling Eyes

Body Mass Index or known as (BMI) is a statistical measure of body weight based on a person's weight and height ,here we used BMI for previous IVF conception to know how successful will the next attempt be.
BTW we can say it's about conception quality.
