A randomized controlled trial in older women with unexplained infertility to compare treatment initiated with two cycles of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation/IUI versus immediate IVF demonstrated superior pregnancy rates with fewer treatment cycles in the immediate IVF group.
This is not surprising. For older women, time is at a premium.
Even if they do not achieve a pregnancy , attempting IVF treatment at a world-class clinic will give them peace of mind they did your best !
Treatment can be expensive, but a baby is priceless.
