However, it has found women have very little chance of becoming pregnant using Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) if they are not successful after five treatments. The research by the University of NSW found 264 women were so keen for a child they had 10 cycles of treatment between 2009-2011. This was even though the sixth cycle of treatment only afforded an extra 0.7 per cent chance of pregnancy and the seventh cycle 0.4 per cent. Women over 40 now make up one in four of the ART cycles delivered and the study shows they have a 15.7 per cent chance of becoming pregnant after five cycles of treatment. This very much shows the impact of your age, says one of the authors, Professor Elizabeth Sullivan. The study is the first to calculate the cumulative success rate of ART on a national basis. The chance of delivering a live born baby was 21.1 per cent after the first cycle, increasing to 31.1 per cent after two cycles, 36 per cent after three cycles, 38.6 per cent after four cycles and 40 per cent after five cycles. The calculations were made on data from 35 fertility centres in Australia and New Zealand between 2009-2011. It shows there is little chance of pregnancy after the fifth round of treatment, regardless of a womans age. But when the age of the mother was taken into account, it found more than half the women (50.6 per cent) under 30 have a baby within five rounds of ART and there are similar rates of success for women aged 30 to 34 (51.7 per cent). There were 11,148 live babies born with the treatments in Australia in 2011. Mike and Pat Osborne drove their 1928 Riley Nine Roadster from Melbourne to Darwin as part of a national rally Picture: KATRINA BRIDGEFORD Living life of Riley By CLAYTON BENNETT A CAVALCADE of classic cars drove into Darwin this week following a 3000km trip north. The convoy of British Rileys arrived at the old Qantas Hangar in Parap on Wednesday, the final destination after a trip from Adelaide. Motorist Mike Osborne and his wife Pat were among 16 Riley enthusiasts who made the journey through the central desert for the annual Rattle of the Rileys. The beauty of the Territory was a welcome pairing with the pleasure of driving his vintage vehicle on the open road. Mr Osborne said he had owned Rileys since the early 1990s. Theyre an interesting car with a strong sporting history, you have a lot of fun with them, he said. The travelling couple werent behind the wheel of just any Riley, they own the famous Antill Riley, a Riley Nine Roadster driven first by Peter Antill who set the trans-Australian light car record in 1929, driving from Sydney to Fremantle in five days and 18 hours. The Riley lovers will spend the next few days in the Top End before returning down south on Monday.
