San Francisco Fertility Clinic Success Rates

The Assisted Reproductive Technology Report, which is published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is an important tool in the search for a fertility clinic. This report includes the success rates for every fertility clinic that operates in the United States.

The success rates for each fertility clinic are broken up by procedure and age group. Along with the success rates, it includes other data that may be important to your decision, such as total number of IVF cycles performed, average number of embryos transferred, and number of multiple births.

The ART Report also includes data for each clinic that lists what types of diagnoses they treat and what types of IVF they perform.

Fertility Clinic Success Rates Are Only Part of the Equation

The success rates listed in the ART Report are undoubtedly important factors in your fertility clinic decision. Although it may be tempting to let high success rates make your decision, they may not tell you the whole story.

Fertility clinics are competitive about success rates, since having high success rates can give greater prestige and lead to a higher number of patients. However, in order to maintain high success rates, some fertility clinics may become selective about the types of patients they accept to treat. Some fertility clinics may not accept patients with certain diagnoses, since that may bring their success rates down. Others may have high success rates only for certain age groups, or may treat only a few individuals of some age groups.

The fertility clinic success rates represent an important starting point, but when reading the data, make sure you read the breakdowns of procedures and age groups carefully. And if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask the administration at the fertility clinic.
