Overall Success Rates
IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is generally considered more effective than IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) for a variety of reasons, backed by technical factors and data:
01. Higher Success Rates:
IVF has overall higher success rates compared to IUI. The increased effectiveness of IVF can be attributed to the advanced techniques used, as well as the ability to select the best quality embryos for transfer.
02.Effectiveness in Older Women:
IVF remains relatively more effective for women over the age of 35 and 40.
03. Treatment for a Wider Range of Infertility Causes:
IVF is effective in addressing a broader range of infertility issues compared to IUI. These include blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, severe male infertility, endometriosis, and cases where previous IUI treatments have been unsuccessful.
04. IVF can also be combined with ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) for cases of severe male infertility.
05. Embryo Quality Control:
With IVF, it’s possible to select the best quality embryos for transfer, increasing the likelihood of a successful pregnancy. In contrast, IUI doesn’t allow for any control over the quality of the fertilized eggs.
06. Preimplantation Genetic Testing:
IVF allows for Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) to be performed on embryos before implantation. PGT helps identify chromosomal abnormalities or specific genetic disorders, increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy and healthy baby.
