San Antonio Fertility Clinic Success Rates
Each year, every fertility clinic is required by federal law to submit their in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This information is then compiled into a report by the CDC called the Assisted Reproductive Technology Report.
For couples struggling with infertility and considering IVF to help them conceive, the ART report is a helpful tool. It contains detailed information for each fertility clinic, including personal characteristics of each clinic like what diagnoses they treat and what kind of IVF services they offer. It also includes the number of IVF cycles performed broken down by age group, the live birth success rate, and the number of multiple births.
Because of the in-depth, comprehensive nature of the ART Report, the CDC only releases an updated copy every three years.

Fertility Clinic Success Rates are Only One Part of the Equation
Choosing a fertility clinic is an important step in your family-building journey. It is helpful to research the success rates of each fertility clinic you are considering beforehand.
While these success rates are important, they should not act as the only factor in making your decision. Visiting each fertility clinic you are considering beforehand is vital, so you and your partner can gauge firsthand the professionalism of each clinic and how patients are treated. Ask questions while you are there to get a feel of the fertility clinics’ ethics regarding the number of IVF cycles administered each year, number of embryos implanted, and age limits on certain treatments.
Also, the fertility clinic success rates must be read carefully in order to understand the action performance of each clinic. Fertility clinics are competitive, and they often work to earn the highest success rates. To do so, some fertility clinics are selective about the patients they accept for treatment. For example, some clinics may not accept women with certain conditions that may make conceiving very difficult. In order to gain the most complete understanding of these success rates, it is important to look carefully at the patient diagnosis table and breakdown by age section in the ART Report.
