AI Babies: How Tech is Upgrading the IVF Game

At AIVF, we’re all about using the latest tech to help out in the world of baby-making. Our new AI software, EMA, is designed to give fertility doctors a hand in picking out the best embryos for IVF, giving folks better chances at getting pregnant.

The Problem with IVF

For many women, getting pregnant isn’t as straightforward as it should be. Infertility is on the rise, and this is where IVF comes in handy. But the process isn’t foolproof and often comes with its fair share of emotional and financial stress. According to the CDC, about one in five married women in the U.S can’t conceive after trying for a year and might consider IVF as an option.

But here’s the thing: IVF doesn’t always work. The success rate hasn’t changed much over the years – it’s around 23% to 25% for all age groups, meaning only one in five IVF attempts results in pregnancy. Plus, IVF can be pricey, with each round costing over $12,000 on average, as reported by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.

AIVF’s Tech-Savvy Solution

Seeing the need for a better way to choose embryos for IVF, AIVF developed EMA, an AI-powered software that uses big data to help fertility doctors pick out the best embryos for the procedure.

In the past, doctors had to rely on their own expertise and judgement to select embryos. But in a busy lab, where multiple embryos may look similar, making a decision isn’t easy. This is where EMA comes in. It uses AI to analyze features of the embryos that humans might not notice, such as genetic issues, implantation potential, and even gender.

With EMA, each embryo gets a score. This gives doctors extra data to base their decisions on, helping them make more accurate choices and improve IVF outcomes.

The EMA Advantage: More Accurate, Faster, Cheaper

EMA has some big advantages over old school embryo selection methods. Firstly, it’s better at spotting stuff that human doctors might miss, making it more accurate in grading embryo quality. It uses a scoring system that reduces human error and makes the whole process more reliable.

On top of that, EMA’s AI can evaluate embryos way quicker than a human could. This means clinics can see more patients and cut down on wait times.

And last but not least, EMA could help make IVF cheaper. By picking out the best embryos more accurately, it can reduce the number of IVF rounds needed to get pregnant. Normally, you’d need three to five treatments, but with EMA, the average is just 1.6. Fewer treatments mean big savings, making IVF more affordable.

AI and Humans: Teamwork

It’s important to note that EMA isn’t meant to replace doctors – it’s there to help them. At AIVF, we believe in the power of human doctors working together with AI tech. Doctors always have the final say, using the data from EMA to give the best possible care to their patients.

We also make sure to test and evaluate EMA thoroughly. We’re committed to making it better and better through ongoing research and working with medical professionals. This ensures that our AI stays up to standards and continues to make a positive impact on reproductive medicine.

The Future with EMA

EMA has already been a game changer in Europe, Southeast Asia, and South America, and we’re stoked to bring it to the United States soon. Clinics that have used EMA are loving it, reporting up to a 30% increase in IVF success rates. We’re proud to be leading the way with this tech, helping patients take part in the IVF process with complete transparency.

Looking ahead, we at AIVF are all about improving the patient experience, increasing success rates, and making IVF more accessible to everyone who wants to start a family. With our focus on research, innovation, and ethical use of AI, we believe the future of baby-making is looking pretty awesome.
