The good news for all couples diagnosed with infertility was reported by researchers in Copenhagen. According to their calculations, about 75% of women who went to clinics with infertility problems had positive results.
The data is based on personal statistics from clinics that treated couples for infertility problems between 2007 and 2010. During this time, more than 20,000 women have received treatment, and hospital statistics show that 3 out of 4 women have become mothers within 5 years of starting treatment.
Not many countries in the world keep similar statistics, and Denmark is one of them. Researchers have not just tracked the number of happy mothers, but also the overall success in trying to conceive in women diagnosed with infertility. According to the results, about 57% of the women gave birth after treatment, and about 14% were able to conceive naturally.
More than half of the women had a baby 2 years after treatment (57%), of whom 46% had only 1 IVF attempt and this was successful.
The age of women strongly affects the success rate, and this is shown by statistics: within 5 years of a diagnosis of infertility, women were able to give birth:
- Under 35 years old – 80%
- 30-35 year olds – 60%
- Over 40 years old – 26%.
Thus, patients of fertility clinics have now got a clear answer to the questions that concern them the most: how big are their chances of having a child, and how much time is needed for infertility treatment. In general, couples have a very good chance, but treatment takes time and patience.
These studies once again prove that when diagnosed with infertility one should not give up but keep fighting for their happiness. Especially since a lot of time has passed since the research was done, and reproductive medicine has discovered many new ways to help infertile people. So you have a good chance of success!
If infertility cannot be cured, don’t give up because there are several ways out, the first is adoption, the second is surrogacy. Many childless couples have repeatedly asked themselves the question, what is better? The first option is very difficult and your child will not be biologically related to you, so many choose the second option – surrogacy. There is one undeniable advantage – the child will be biologically related to you and you will go through the whole process together with the surrogate.
