Busting Common Myths about IVF Treatment

Infertility is a problem that is faced by many couples today. According to NHS, at least 1 in 7 couples is thought to be having problems regarding conception, and the worldwide infertility rates keep increasing.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a common technique used by many couples to treat infertility. This technique has succeeded in helping numerous women get pregnant. However, a lot of people are still sceptical about the IVF treatment due to myths … let’s explore them.

Myth 1: Infertility can only be treated with IVF

There are many conditions which can cause infertility problems in couples and therefore IVF should not be regarded as the only solution for every infertility issue. By speaking to an expert as soon as possible, you can determine the right way for you.

Myth 2: IVF is extremely expensive

The cost of IVF treatment can be expensive, and sometimes costs will increase further, especially when extras such as medication, consultations and additional procedures were not disclosed upfront. Understanding the treatment plan and all the costs is vital before you agree to go ahead with an IVF provider.

Myth 3: Babies have an increased risk due to IVF

There is no evidence of an increased risk for babies conceived through IVF. This notion prevailed in the times when IVF was introduced; however, the facts show that there is no basis for such an opinion.

Myth 4: IVF is only for women under 35

Even though women are increasingly less likely to conceive as they get older, it does not mean that IVF will only be successful for women who are under 35. Women who are at a post-menopausal stage can also benefit from IVF, although sometimes this may require egg donation. Speak with an expert to find out how this specifically works for you as every individual and situation is different.

After understanding the cause of their infertility, couples can decide if IVF is the right treatment option for them and then start treatment without having any doubts about the safety or reliability of the whole procedure.
