IVF Success Rates May be Misleading

Fertility Clinic Success Rates

Some fertility clinics are manipulating their reported IVF success rates, according to a study recently published in the journal Fertility & Sterility. Dr. Vitaly Kushnir, a reproductive endocrinologist with the Center for Human Reproduction in New York City, analyzed fertility clinic data from 2005 to 2010 which was reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as mandated by law, and reported to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) voluntarily.

Men's Health Month: Taking Charge of Male Fertility

June 19, 2013

Many people fail to realize the correlation between overall health and fertility. Infertility is often a symptom of an underlying medical problem, even at a young age. In honor of Men’s Health Month this June, Fertility Authority is raising awareness of men’s health and fertility, including ways to improve sperm quality and quantity and treatment options for addressing male infertility.

What the Child Parent Security Act Means for Surrogacy in New York

May 29. 2013

A gestational carrier bears a pregnancy that is not biologically related to her. One or more embryos, created from the intended mother’s eggs or donor eggs and sperm from the intended father or a sperm donor, is transferred into the uterus of the gestational carrier similar to a traditional embryo transfer in IVF. The gestational carrier will relinquish all rights to the child at birth as is detailed in a gestational carrier agreement. However, gestational carrier agreements are not legal in all states making custody and parental rights a bit murky.

Why Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy May Help You Conceive

May 13, 2013

Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy are two minimally invasive surgical procedures used in the diagnosis and treatment of certain female factor infertility conditions. For fertility patients with a suspected diagnosis of endometriosis, fibroids, or polyps, or for those with a history of pelvic infection, laparoscopy and hysteroscopy can be used simultaneously to ascertain the state of the uterine cavity.

How Birth Control May Impact the Outcome of Your IVF Cycle

fertility medications

In many traditional in vitro fertilization (IVF) protocols, the fertility patient is instructed to take oral contraceptive birth control pills to suppress natural hormones. This creates a “blank slate” for ovarian stimulation to take place and allows fertility doctors to have the most control over the course of an IVF cycle. However, new findings suggest that taking birth control as part of an IVF cycle may actually reduce the quantity and quality of eggs retrieved.

What You Need to Know about Fertility Clinic Success Rates

April 29, 2013

Fertility clinics are mandated by the CDC to report the success of their in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles each year. The CDC Assisted Reproductive Technology report containing these success rates takes approximately three years to compile. In addition, the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) and other resources like aim to present accurate data which represents clinic success rates on the same plane. Although success rates are not intended to be a basis for comparison between fertility clinics, some would suggest that success rates provide a window into the operation of the clinic’s IVF lab. Many times these success rates are difficult for the layperson to interpret, however, so fertility patients should understand what each report says and the data most helpful for choosing their fertility clinic.
