|Doctors have developed a test to predict the chances of a woman getting pregnant after undergoing in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).
Researchers at Stanford University say that the test is 70 per cent accurate, and is conducted after embryos are created but before they are implanted.
They added that this could help tailor treatment and counselling for thousands of couples who undergo IVF.
"There's a lot of emotional and financial cost, as well as medical intervention, involved with IVF treatment and often the costs have to be paid for by the couple," said Dr Mylene Yao, who led the research.
