IVF means In Vitro (Greek Word means outside body) Fertilization. It is often called as test tube baby treatment as well.

In Males, following factors indicate the need of IVF:
What is right age to enter IVF?
In today’s scenario, with respect to female, the AMH levels depicts the fertility power which is more important than age. If the AMH levels are less than 2.0, than it suggest that individualized approach is required to treat the infertility in such cases. However, off late I have noticed that many a times the AMH levels is interpreted in a wrong manner and therefore the clinical diagnosis with 2nd-3rd day Transvaginal Sonogram should be co-related with the results. So if the follicle count is less than 7 in both ovaries than IVF is the choice of treatment.
It can be summarized that in cases of age above 35 years or/and marriage life of 10 years with infertility should be considered for IVF.
What do you mean by success rate in IVF?
Success rate in IVF suggests the positive pregnancy rates after transferring 2-3 Grade-1 embryos in the uterus in each attempt.
As per my experience, transferring embryos in the same cycle immediately after pick-up will never increase the success rate of IVF on continuous basis. It varies from batch to batch and it is anywhere between 35 to 45%.
However, freezing the embryo and transferring in the natural cycle two months after the ovum pick-up can have more than 60% results in the same cycle. The indicate rates of success may also increase depending on the level of experience and technical excellence of the organization.
