IVF Options Success Rate Classifications
On IVF Options clinic results we classify clinics as below average, average, above average or not disclosed. On clinic profiles, we show the clinic’s live birth success rates by age range. The classification on clinic results page is determined by seeing how the clinic compares to the national average in each age category. If the clinic is above the national average in all age ranges, they are listed as above average. If they are above average in some categories and average or below average in others, they will be listed as average. If the clinic below average more than average or above average they will be listed as below average.
Live Birth Success Rates
Live birth success rates vary significantly depending on the type of treatment, patient age and cause of infertility in the people being treated. We recommend that you speak to your fertility specialist to get a more detailed understanding of what success rate range you would expect given you age range and specific fertility issues. If you haven’t chosen a fertility specialist yet, request a free nurse chat from any clinic you are considering to get more information before you book a consultation.
Questions to Ask About Fertility Success Rates:
- Are the success rates ‘live birth’ success rates?
- How many treatment cycles are the success rates based off of?
- What is the success rate for my particular age group?
- What is the success rate for my/our particular infertility?
- How many cycles are conducted per year by the clinic?
- How many treatment cycles would I likely need to go through in order to have a baby.
- Has the clinic had any major changes in its staff, offered treatments and protocols since their last published success rates.
Please note some smaller clinics, clinics in regional areas or clinics that have opened recently may not have enough data or the data may be skewed due to lower number of treatment cycles. Additionally it is important to note that clinic’s success rates may also be skewed based on the age of patients and level of complexity of fertility issues that they may treat.
