The EEVA Test – Boost Your Chance of IVF Success #EEVACAN

Many times over the past four years I have written about infertility and the emotional and financial cost of treatment. While some infertility patients get pregnant with drug treatment alone, there are also times when in vitro fertilization (IVF) is the prescribed course of action. Where in vitro fertilization is medically prescribed, there is often a great financial cost involved. Couples have sometimes been through the ringer emotionally and had to save thousands of dollars for a chance at doing a round of in vitro fertilization. Even if they manage to save the amount necessary and wade through all of the emotions involved, IVF, while extremely efficient, is not a guarantee of success. That’s where the EEVA test comes into play.



What is the EEVA test and should I do it?

EEVA stands for Early Embryonic Viability Assessment. It helps your clinician and fertility team consistently pick the best quality embryo for transfer. That can help increase your confidence and give you a bit of control over the infertility process. EEVA can boost your chances of success.

EEVA is a test that carries an extra fee. There are benefits and risks associated with the Eeva Test. EEVA test has been cleared by the FDA for use in the United States to aid in embryo selection. To date thousands of women in Europe, Canada and the US have chosen to include the Eeva Test in their IVF cycles. Basically EEVA uses time lapse video to determine which embryo is the best quality.

Genesis Fertility Centre in BC was the  first clinic in Canada, to offer patients the Early Embryo Viability Assessment (Eeva), cutting-edge technology that helps people trying to conceive. Genesis is also the first commercial clinic in North America to offer EEVA. Now there are many other clinics in Canada and the US that have the EEVA test.

Recent tests show that using EEVA test in addition to standard lab practices increase chance of success by up to 10 %. One study demonstrated that EEVA test together with traditional methods increase chances of forming a blastocyst, an important developmental milestone, by 53 %.

ASK your clinic if they have EEVA.

    IVF is so taxing and takes a lot of energy. My sister is currently weighing her options and I am excited for the future and the options that are out there for them.

    IVF is such a complex process but it is so amazing for people that have a hard time conceiving. It’s a great advancement in medicine.

  • Angie

    I wonder if one day I’ll have to look into IVF. Who knows though? I’m learning most women think they’re probably infertile until they try and know for sure. I worry about it. Thanks for sharing this info though, I like to be more well-informed.

    I have a friend who went through IVF a few times, but all failed. I really feel bad for her and her husband. It’s a very complex thing and it’s good to know that they have this EEVA test to boost the chance of success.

    This sounds like something decent for those that are trying to have kids. I love that there are other ways out there like this for everyone to have a chance for having kids.

    The Eeva test sounds like an awesome extra for those trying IVF. I know it is a great cost emotionally and financially when using IVF it is really seems the EEVA can really help with the process. Thanks for sharing this awesome information for many couples.

    This is a great innovative solution for parents who struggle with infertility. I have no clue what the struggle feels like. I remember trying with my son and it was frustrating those first few months when I didn’t get pregnant. I just kept going and forgot about trying and fell pregnant.

  • Lori Felix

    My friend did a couple rounds of IVF, was successful with the second round and now has beautiful twins. It can definitely be a long process but with great rewards.

    It’s crazy how many people do IVF! You would think it’s something rare, but in all the moms groups in in there are always a handful of moms talking about IVF!

    • Paula

      Courtney: It really isn’t rare anymore for sure. It’s good to know people are talking about it and not hiding the fact that they need IVF sometimes to conceive.

  • maggie branch

  • Eloise

    Great info… the things they can do these days to help people! I’ll have to pass this on to someone I know that can use this!
