Online calculator that tries to predict IVF success released

Conclusion This study aimed to develop a model that could predict the chances of a live birth over multiple cycles of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The model used a large quantity of data taken from reliable UK medical records belonging to couples who had previously undergone IVF or ICSI. The model also benefits from being able to account for a large number of personal and treatment characteristics. The researchers developed two models for couples in both the pre-treatment and post-treatment phase of treatment cycles. They hope this online tool will serve as an aid for couples to shape expectations about what their overall chances are of having a baby after IVF or ICSI treatment, as well as allowing couples to make more informed decisions about their treatment. Although this is potentially very useful for both doctors and patients, it's important to bear in mind that every couple will have a different experience – models, no matter how sophisticated, are not necessarily able to reflect what happens in reality. And this tool includes very broad questions – for example, it asks if you have male factor infertility or tube problems. As such, it's not possible to add in your own specific data on factors like which fertility problem you or your partner may suffer from. If you're considering having fertility treatment, you can increase your chances of conception – whether you're woman or man – by quitting smokin...

In conclusion, screening uptake is negatively associated with unfavourable behaviours and health conditions that are also risk factors for breast and colorectal cancer incidence. Socioeconomic characteristics do not fully explain these differences. Health promotion interventions targeting diet and physical activity nested in screening programmes might miss part of the at-risk population.
