So when choosing a fertility clinic, it makes the most sense to pick the clinic with the highest success rates, right? Not exactly.
Fertility clinic success rates are influenced by a number of factors. Success rates are a source of pride for many fertility clinics, and the competition has grown recently to see which can post the highest success rates. And in order to achieve high success rates, some fertility clinics are becoming more selective about the types of patients they choose to treat. Some fertility clinics do not accept patients with certain disorders that may make pregnancy even more difficult to achieve.
How can the ART Report help you understand the fertility clinic success rates in Charlotte? Make sure to pay close attention to the patient diagnosis breakdown, which lists the percentage of patients with various infertility factors treated at the clinic. If your issue is male factor infertility, it may be important to look at a fertility clinic with more experience treating that diagnosis.
Also, it is important to look at the age breakdown. The ART Report breaks down success rates for fresh, non-donor in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles by the woman’s age. It can be helpful to choose a fertility clinic with a good amount of experience treating women your age, which you can tell by the number of IVF cycles performed and the subsequent success rate.
