IVF and Donor Egg Success Rates
IVF and Donor Egg IVF success rates are reported to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). Several years ago, the CDC began collecting IVF success rates data to provide consistency in reporting from SART member IVF clinics.
The IVF clinic at Baystate Reproductive Medicine has consistently had IVF success rates among the highest in the nation.* Our IVF success rates can be viewedat www.sart.org We take great pride in treating each couple, person, embryo, and gamete (egg & sperm) carefully.This manifests as high IVF success rates and excellent patient satisfaction.
The most current SART data “lags” about 2 years after the reporting year. For example, 2010 data is available in 2012 once all the babies from cycles in 2010 are born. SART separates cycles by age and reports pregnancies and live births per cycle. Our SART data demonstrates excellent IVF success rates. SART data is available for all IVF clinics in the region.
IVF success rates are influenced by the number of embryos transferred. However, transferring more embryos greatly increases the chance of multiple births. Our IVF clinic has a major successful effort underway to promote singleton pregnancies by transferring only one embryo in patients under 35 years old when possible. We have been able to eliminate triplets and minimize twins while maintaining very high IVF success rates (51% live birth rate/embryo transfer).
IVF Success Rates
In its most recent report on IVF success rates, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) identified Baystate Reproductive Medicine (BRM) as a fertility clinic with very high IVF success rates, while leading the country in safe techniques to reduce multiple, and encourage single, embryo transfers. Fewer embryos transferred lowers the incidence of multiple births. Embryos that are not transferred are frozen for use in future cycles. Our frozen-thawed embryo transfer rate is equal to our fresh cycle embryo transfer rate.
SART notes that clinics routinely performing over 120 IVF cycles a year are more proficient than clinics performing fewer cycles. Baystate’s fertility clinic performs approximately 500 IVF and 900 IUI cycles per year. We encourage you to visit the SART Web site and review our success rates.
*Patient characteristics can vary among IVF programs so SART data cannot be used to compare clinics.
