San Diego Fertility Clinic Success Rates
Couples looking to choose a fertility clinic have a helpful resource at their disposal: the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Report. Compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this report lists the success rates for every fertility clinic in the country. Because of the involved nature of this report, it takes the CDC three years to compile each report.
The ART Report breaks down the success rates for each clinic in a variety of ways, including by procedure and age. It also includes other details about the clinics, like whether they accept patients with certain diagnoses and what kind of IVF procedures they offer. Couples can also find further information listed here, including the total number of IVF cycles performed by age and the number of multiple births that resulted.
While the CDC’s ART Report is considered the most comprehensive tool for fertility clinic success rates, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology also publishes similar data.

Fertility Clinic Success Rates
When searching for a fertility clinic, some couples depend solely on the published success rates of the clinics. While success rates can tell a lot about a fertility clinic, they should not be the only research tool used in making a decision. It is important to find a clinic that is a good fit personally, and is staffed by professional and ethical fertility doctors. In our to gauge this, you and your partner can ask the fertility doctors questions like how many IVF cycles they perform each year, what age limits they place on certain procedures, and how many embryos are implanted.
It is also important to learn how to understand the data presented in the ART Report. Fertility clinics are very competitive about their success rates, so they often focus on ways they can make their success rates more impressive. For instance, some fertility clinics will not accept patients with particular diagnoses that may make conceiving a child very difficult. Look carefully the success rates for each clinic in terms of the age of the women and type of procedure. A clinic with an impressive success rate for younger women may not be the best choice for you if it only treats a handful of women in your age group.
