It has been known for some time that increased blood clotting (which tends to be hereditary) can cause repeated IVF failures. However, no research had shown what is the successful treatment. Well, that was until recently, when a research paper published in the Journal of Human Fertility (the official journal of the British Fertility Society) has proven that giving blood thinning medications during IVF treatment in these women can increase their success rate significantly, even after previous repeated failures. It also reduces the chance of miscarriage if they get pregnant.
