Measuring IVF Success Rates
When considering a fertility clinic for their care, many patients look at pregnancy rates and often misinterpret them as delivery or live birth rates. Since 1992, reproductive specialists in the U.S. are required by law to report success rates that include delivery rates as well as other outcomes data to the CDC. This data is also published by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART).Learn More
What You Should Be Looking For
Not all practices and fertility treatments provide the same results. When considering IVF care, patients should ask the following questions in their initial consultation:
- Has the center consistently reported to the CDC/SART with delivery rates at or above the national average?
- Is Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS) for embryonic testing available?
- Does the center routinely perform trophectoderm embryo biopsy when genetic screening is indicated?
- Does the center account for endometrial synchronization during time of embryo transfer?
- Does the center limit the number of embryos transferred to one or two in all patients at all times?
- Are their costs in line with their success rates? Are their fees excessive or discounted too heavily?
IVF Success Rates By Clinic
Each fertility clinic reports their IVF success rates to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). To learn about the success rates for the RMA clinic closest to you, please select your office from the list below.
A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches, and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.
