Online Calculator Predicts IVF Baby Chances

November 18, 2016

(BBC) – Couples can find out their chances of having a baby over multiple cycles of IVF treatment, using a new online calculator. University of Aberdeen researchers, who developed the tool, said it would help couples shape their expectations and plan their treatments. The online calculator is based on data from more than 113,000 women who have gone through IVF. A woman’s age is the most important factor in her chances of having a baby.
