Understanding IVF success rates when selecting fertility clinics

When evaluating a fertility clinic, it’s important you understand what success rates surrounding IVF really mean. 

Following the Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certificate Act in 1992, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) began to collect data from every fertility clinic in the U.S. This information has allowed doctors and academics to monitor success rates of infertility treatments. 

Since then, intended parents undergoing IVF or other Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) now have a better understanding of their chances of a successful birth. 

Factors that influence IVF success 

Several factors can influence your chance of success while undergoing IVF. These include:

A woman's age 

The highest IVF success rates are seen in women under 35. As a woman’s age increases, her risk of miscarriage increases, resulting in a decline in successful IVF procedures.

Infertility diagnoses 

Male and female diagnoses can have differing success with IVF. Your doctor can help you determine what treatment is right for you.

Intended parent’s health and medical history 

Certain medical conditions, diseases, and even medications can affect your fertility journey, so it’s important to fully discuss your medical history with your fertility specialist.

Using donor embryos

For patients who may struggle to create high-quality eggs, using donor eggs can increase success rates. 

How to use IVF success rates

When reviewing a facility's IVF success rates on the CDC website, it's essential to have a basic understanding of what the data is telling you to make an informed decision on which fertility clinic to choose. 

Here's a simple breakdown of what to consider when analyzing success rates:

  • Since miscarriage is often a high risk with IVF, the statistics available do not show the number of conceptions per cycle. Instead, the statistics show the percentage of how many babies were born per cycle. 
  • Each cycle represents a round of treatment, not an individual patient. If a patient undergoes several treatments, the data will show multiple treatment cycles. 

However, remember that comparing clinics is rarely an ‘apples to apples’ comparison, as different clinics and physicians take diverse profiles of patients based on age, risk factors and services offered (such as whether an egg donor was used). 

Clinics that take on more difficult fertility cases may have lower fertility rates, and the best approach to understand your personal IVF profile and likelihood of success is to consult with a physician.

More information on national success rates can be explored on the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) or on SART (Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology).

Choosing an IVF clinic

IVF success rates are helpful when choosing the best IVF clinic available. After viewing several facilities' online success rates in your area, you should contact a few of the clinics to ask questions. Here are some example questions to consider when contacting these clinics:

  • What the facility's success rate is for patients in your age group and particular diagnosis?
  • What is the live birth rate for couples who undergo IVF treatment at their clinic?
  • What is the cost of treatment?
  • What are the success rates for non-donor versus donor embryos?
  • What are the success rates for lesbian and gay couples?
