Boston Fertility Clinic Success Rates

Image of Boston Fertility Success Rates

All fertility clinics are required by federal law to submit their in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates each year to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The information from all of these clinics is published in a thorough report called the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Report. The most current data available on the CDC website is for 2010.

The ART Report is an important research tool for couples struggling with infertility who want to try IVF in order to conceive. The report includes details for each fertility clinic, including number of cycles performed by age of patient, live birth success rate by age, and number of multiple births. It also includes personal characteristics of each clinic, including what kind of IVF services they provide and what diagnoses they treat.

While the CDC is considered the most complete research tool for fertility clinic success rates, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) also publishes success rates.

Fertility Clinic Success Rates are Only One Part of the Equation

Choosing a fertility clinic is a big step for any couple struggling with infertility. It is important to research the clinics and look for institutions that successfully treat women with your same condition in your same age group. While it is important to research the success rates for these fertility clinics, this data alone should not make the decision. Potential IVF patients should ask clinics questions to gauge their professionalism and ethics, on topics such as the number of cycles administered each year, age limits on treatments, and number of embryos transferred.

It is also important to realize that fertility clinics are very competitive about their success rates. For that reason, some clinics are selective about the patients they choose to treat. For example, some fertility clinics may not treat a patient with a certain condition that may make pregnancy more difficult, since that would lower their live birth success rate. It is important for potential patients to thoroughly research the diagnoses treated and treatment types offered in order to get a more complete view of the clinics' success rates.
