Before choosing a fertility clinic, you must know how to read and interpret official IVF pregnancy success records. Yearly data reporting pregnancy success by fertility clinics nationwide is a wealth of information for IVF patients. Here’s the deal: These reports help patients choose a fertility clinic and estimate their average chance of pregnancy success through IVF technology. Why is this important? A substantial amount of IVF pregnancy success is accomplished through Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures.
- You should inquire about embryology policies and procedures
- You should inquire about FET pregnancy success rates
- You should inquire about recent accomplishments in IVF/FET research, as well as changes in IVF/FET technology
Pregnancy Success Rates
IVF and FET pregnancy success is reliant on many patient-focused variables.
- Infertility diagnosis
- History of previous pregnancies
- History of previous miscarriages
- Number of failed IVF cycles – fresh and frozen embryo transfers
- Number of embryos transferred in a single cycle
- IVF protocol recommended
- IVF ancillary procedures used – ICSI, Assisted Hatching, In Vitro Maturation
- Genetic testing to select only quality embryos for transfer – PGD, PGS/NGS
- Gender Selection
Difficult Patients Welcome
We don’t refuse those patients diagnosed as a difficult case. At New Hope Fertility Center, we welcome patients rejected by other fertility specialists because they are deemed to be hopelessly infertile.
- No refusals based on a woman’s advanced maternal age
- No refusals based on low FSH levels
- No refusals based on the number of potential eggs (follicles) a woman can produce per fresh cycle
- No refusals because a woman does not respond well to fertility medication
One Good Egg Policy
Customized IVF care is the best. Remember: It only takes one good egg and one healthy sperm to make a baby. Our focus is to help you produce good quality eggs during a fresh IVF cycle – not a high quantity of eggs using large doses of injectable fertility medications.
SART and CDC
The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) is the official source to which fertility specialists report their IVF and FET pregnancy success rates. You can also look to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for IVF and FET pregnancy success and birth rates.
SART is a fertility specialist organization that is dedicated to setting professional standards in the practice of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Its mission is to inform and serve fertility specialists and their patients.
From the SART website:
Accurate and complete reporting of IVF pregnancy success rates reported by the members of SART is complicated because of the variation of ART practice from clinic to clinic. These differences may inflate or lower IVF pregnancy rates provided by another clinic.
IVF and FET pregnancy success rates vary from clinic to clinic based on:
- Differences in patient selection
- Differences in treatment approaches
- Differences in IVF cycle reporting practices
All fertility specialists in the United States report and verify data on their IVF and FET pregnancy procedures over a calendar year period.
Valuing IVF and FET Pregnancy Success Rates
Yearly data on IVF and FET pregnancy success rates is a valuable source of information for every patient. This rich data gives patients a better idea of their average chances of pregnancy through IVF and FET.
IVF and FET pregnancy success rates can be misleading when based on a small number of transfer procedure performed. At New Hope Fertility Center, we omit graphed data when there are less than 20 transfers in a segment.
