Choosing a Tucson Fertility Clinic
So how can you choose the best fertility clinic for you? One way to start is to gather recommendations from trusted sources, such as your primary care doctor, your ob/gyn, or friends or family members who have experienced fertility treatments.
You may also want to look at fertility clinic success rates in Tucson. You can find this information listed in the Assisted Reproductive Technology Report, an annual compilation of data produced by the CDC. This report lists total number of IVF cycles performed per age group and number of successful births. It also lists this information for egg donor IVF cycles, both fresh and frozen.
Fertility treatment success rates shouldn’t be the only information you use when choosing a fertility clinic in Tucson. That’s because there’s a lot that goes into them. Some fertility clinics, in order to make their success rates seem higher, won’t accept women with certain diagnoses or who are over a certain age, since that may make pregnancy more difficult to achieve.
You may also want to factor in logistical information when choosing a clinic. Because fertility clinics often require frequent appointments, you should plan on traveling to the clinic frequently. That means it’s helpful to pick a fertility clinic that is convenient, whether it is close to your home or work or does not involve a tricky commute. Fertility treatments can be stressful enough—you don’t want to add in a long or hairy back-and-forth.
