How women are being misled about the success rates of IVF and fertility treatments

Some people are getting IVF who shouldn’t be getting it

The Baby Business – Four Corners, May 31, 2016.

An Australian documentary has claimed that women over 40 are being misled about their chances of conceiving via IVF treatment when using their own eggs.

An investigation by the current affairs documentary Four Corners, on ABC, explained that chances of having a live birth per cycle following IVF treatment using their own fresh eggs were:

  • almost 6% for women aged 41-42 years old,
  • reduced to just under 3% for women aged 43–44 years old,
  • limited to a mere 1% for women over the age of 45.
