Couples who have tried unsuccessfully to achieve pregnancy over a period of months or years have a number of potentially life-changing decisions ahead of them. Do we keep trying? Should we adopt? Is IVF a possibility for us? There are hundreds of possible questions, and no easy answers.
Once a couple has decided to seek treatments for infertility through in vitro fertilization, or IVF, even more questions present themselves. Perhaps the most important of these questions is “Where do we go for treatment?” Finding the right fertility clinic is of paramount importance to the future of such families.

Why a Clinic’s Success Rates Are Important
There are few fields of medicine more dependent on the skill and experience of individual doctors as fertility treatment. This is because IVF is a delicate procedure with average success rates across the nation of less than 50 percent among patients of all ages, even with all of the great advances that have occurred in fertility treatments in the past two decades. That’s right: the average clinic achieves success rates of less than 50 percent, even among younger women. At an average fertility clinic, the odds are already stacked against your success; at a below average clinic, you are truly taking your chances.
At our clinic in Los Angeles, IVF success rates are higher than the national average among women of all ages. In fact, among women between the ages of 35 and 42, the age groups for whom the national success rates begin to decline dramatically, our success rates are significantly higher than average. Consider the 2010 statistics:
- Below 35: The national average is 47.7 percent; ours is 52.4 percent
- Ages 35-37: The national average is 38.8 percent; ours is 50 percent
- Ages 38-40: The national average is 29.9 percent; ours is 34.4 percent
- Ages 41-42: The national average is 20.1 percent; ours is 33.3 percent
While this does not guarantee success in any case, it is a good indicator of our skill. It is telling that our success rate among women between the ages of 35 and 37 is higher than the national average success rate for women under 35. The fact that more than one-third of our patients between the ages of 35 and 42 achieve pregnancy through IVF reflects why we eagerly work with couples that other clinics might dismiss as “difficult” cases. Our Los Angeles IVF clinic achieves superior results because we employ only the most talented professionals who use only the most advanced techniques in a safe, clean, modern setting.
