According to a new study presented last month at a reproductive medicine meeting in Denver, more attempts aren't necessarily better or more useful when it comes to fertility treatments. The study found that about 1 in 3 women had a baby the first time they tried in vitro fertilization. The results improved to nearly 1 in 2 with a second try. That said, going with a third round of fertility treatments did little to improve pregnancy odds, as results tend to level off with time two and subsequent tries. Of course, individuals should consider their own circumstances and work with a fertility specialist when deciding on undergoing, or not undergoing more fertility treatments. However with the high costs of fertility treatments, not to mention the stress these treatments can cause, the facts that results may not improve with extra treatments is something all families should consider.
