The percentage of cycles resulting in live births at our center is consistently above average. The following is a summary of our percentage of in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles resulting in live births from 2017, the most recent year available. These statistics are published by the governmental agency responsible for overseeing fertility practices, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
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. 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.
Overall, there has never been a better time to consider IVF and other infertility treatment options. Contact The Center for Fertility and Gynecology for more information or to make an appointment with one of our physicians today.
