Sacramento Fertility Clinic Success Rates
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) require every fertility clinic in the United States to report their success rates each year. This data is compiled into the Assisted Reproductive Technology Report (ART), a report which provides in-depth information on clinics all over the country.
This report provides detailed information, such as the diagnoses each clinic treats and the types of IVF procedures they perform. It breaks down the success rates by a number of factors, including age of the woman, and type of procedure, like whether a fresh or frozen donor egg was used. Along with the live birth success rate, it also includes data on number of multiple births and number of embryos transferred.
The CDC releases this report every three years. The most recent data uses information from 2007.

Fertility Clinic Success Rates Are Only Part of the Equation
Researching fertility clinics before you commit to one is a helpful step, because it gives you a better understanding of the type of procedures offered and the success rates.
However, it is important to understand that fertility clinic success rates only tell part of the story. Fertility clinics can be very competitive about their success rates, and, as a result, may choose the types of patients they treat based on who would give them the greater possibilities for success. For instance, some clinics may not take women with difficult diagnoses that may make conceiving or sustaining a pregnancy even more difficult. Other fertility clinics may seem to have high success rates, but they may treat primarily younger women.
Read through the data carefully when researching your clinics. Check to see if the fertility clinic treats women with your diagnosis, and if it has a high success rate for women in your age group.
