In vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates at our Los Angeles-area infertility clinic are consistently among the best in the nation. At The Center for Fertility and Gynecology, located in Tarzana, we’re proud to compare our success rates with the national averages for IVF and other fertility treatments. In fact, we’re especially proud of our results because of our unique treatment philosophy.
The percentage of frozen embryo transfers resulting in pregnancies from 2014 is also considered above average. The following is a summary of our pregnancy rates from 2014.
Simply stated, we don’t screen our patients. Many clinics are careful to weed out particularly difficult cases, refusing treatment to some patients and laying the groundwork for inflated success rate statistics. To us, this doesn’t seem right. We strive to help each of our patients achieve the dream of parenthood, so you won’t be turned away if your condition is considered “complex” in order to improve our numbers. Instead, we offer hope to prospective parents who have decreased ovarian reserves, or who have failed elsewhere and are considered to have low chances of having a baby. Our success rates are particularly impressive in light of our refusal to stack the deck in our favor.
You can learn more about achieving your goal of parenthood during a consultation at our practice. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment.
The Measure of Success
There are no iron-clad guarantees of IVF or other infertility treatments’ success. However, ongoing advancements in the field have led to a dramatic increase in success rates since the technique was introduced in the late 1970s, and there is a good chance you can become pregnant with fertility assistance.
IVF, which involves laboratory cultivation and transplantation of embryos, is a delicate procedure that requires a high degree of skill and years of experience.
By The Numbers
Our physicians have been performing IVF and other infertility treatment procedures for more than 20 years. This vast experience and knowledge of the field contribute to an impressive record of results:
- Today, women under the age of 34 have more than a 50% chance of becoming pregnant with the assistance of IVF. More accurately, patients at our clinic have a 52.4% chance of conceiving, compared to a national average of 47.7%.
- Our patients aged 35-37 still have a 50% chance of success, significantly higher than the national average of 38.8%.
- Although success rates are negatively correlated with age, we still retain a 33.3% chance of our patients over the age of 40 conceiving a baby.
- With the use of an egg donor, our rates are exceptional - we have a 76.9% success, much higher than the national average of 55.6%.
Once you become pregnant using IVF, the chances of the pregnancy culminating in a live birth have also greatly increased in the past two decades.
