What are your chances of success with IVF versus surgery and IUI?
When patients first seek help to conceive, the array of fertility treatments available can seem overwhelming. Treatment options at our Louisiana fertility center can range from conservative options, such as ovulation induction with timed intercourse, to more aggressive treatments, such as in vitro fertilization. While not every patient needs to jump directly into more costly and aggressive treatments such as IVF, sometimes a comparison of their success rates by diagnosis is a valuable tool in making the tough decisions.
Most often, patients are faced with the decision to choose between IVF versus surgery or intrauterine insemination as their treatment option. What factors should you use to make your decision? While your particular diagnosis may dictate one over the other, oftentimes your decision is influenced by time, money and success rates. How you prioritize each of these in your decision very often depends on your personal circumstances such as age, financial resources and risk tolerance.
For example, patients who are of advanced maternal age may value time over all other factors, and will opt for more aggressive treatment. Others who have time on their side, may decide to start with more conservative treatment. This same argument holds true for those patients who value the financial aspect of the equation. Those with less financial resources may decide to be more conservative with treatment while others with more may decide to spend their money on the more expensive and aggressive treatment plans.
While every patient will fall one way or the other when it comes to time and money, adding in the success rates of different treatment options given the patient’s diagnosis can help patients make a more meaningful decision as to their fertility treatment.
