There are 2 ways to access IVF success rates in this country. What you should be aware of is that the data is only available for 2007 and 2008 cycles. I will describe the 2 ways to learn more about your clinic’s published success rates below:
The website above provides a summary of IVF cycles performed in this country and you can even read about success rates from each clinic but current data are for 2007 only.
2. The second source of IVF success rates are from : http://www.sart.org/Guide_SuccessRates.html
This report contains the same outcome data as the CDC report but is released a year sooner. The current SART report contains outcome data from 2008.
Before you use these resources to compare rates between clinics to find the “best” clinic available to you, you should be aware of this:
As accurately stated on the CDC website:
“Comparisons between clinics must be made with caution. Many factors contribute to the success of an ART procedure. Some clinics may be more willing than others to accept patients with low chances of success or may specialize in various ART (assisted reproductive treatments) that attract particular types of patients.”
The CDC website does a good job highlighting specific factors you should look at when considering a fertility clinic.
The best advice I can give a patient when comparing IVF clinics is to look at the pregnancy rate in women over 40 years old. If a clinic has a high success rate in women over 40, you know they have a good lab.
Hope this helps.
