Tampa Fertility Clinic Success Rates
Couples looking to choose a fertility clinic often turn to success rates to help them make their decision. An important research tool is the Centers for Disease Control’s Assisted Reproductive Technology Report. This report includes IVF success rates for every practicing fertility clinic in the United States, and breaks down the information by type of procedure performed, diagnoses treated, and age of the woman. It also includes profiles of each clinic and the patients they accept. This report lets you know clinics which will work with you if you are a single woman or if you plan to use a donor egg, donor embryo, or a gestational surrogate.
It takes the CDC three years to compile the ART report.
The CDC’s ART Report is considered the most thorough tool for researching fertility clinic success rates, but the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) also produces similar reports.

Fertility Clinic Success Rates Are Only One Part of the Equation
Fertility clinic success rates are an important component in choosing a fertility clinic, but it should not be considered the only one. Scheduling personal visits to each clinic you are considering is vital, since you will be able to ask questions to help you gauge the professionalism and ethics of each clinic. Try to ask questions about the total number of IVF cycles performed, the age limits for procedures, and the number of embryos typically implanted.
Finally, it is important to understand that fertility clinics are very competitive about their success rates, since posting high numbers tends to draw them more clients. However, some fertility clinics focused on high success rates may be very selective about the patients they choose to treat. Some may choose not to accept a woman if she has a certain medical diagnosis or an advanced age if they think the possibility of her becoming pregnant is too slight.
For that reason, be very thorough when reading the statistics. Make sure to read the type of diagnoses each clinic treats, as well as the total number of cycles performed. A clinic with a high live birth success rate for younger women may not be the best choice for you if it only treated several women of your age group. Read the age and treatment breakdowns carefully, and try to choose a fertility clinic with high success rates for women your age for your specific procedure.
