Our Success

When choosing a fertility service provider, couples and individuals instinctively will try to compare programs based on success rates. Many IVF programs and clinics publish “success rates” even though the CDC and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) emphatically insist that head-to-head comparison between clinics is not meaningful without considering the patient population and the practice style. Rates vary considerably, for example, due to differences in the rigor a clinic put into its non-IVF treatment program, the selection or exclusion process prior to IVF, the cancellation policy, the stimulation protocols, the number of embryos to transfer, and the value they place on the risk of avoiding high order multiple gestations. Thus, a center-by-center comparison of results is not valid.

When it comes to IVF, Family Fertility Center prides itself on being very inclusive. We aim to give patients the best estimate of their predicted success, yet leave the final decision as to whether to attempt IVF to the individual patient. We strongly believe patient autonomy supersedes the self serving goal of optimizing an individual clinic’s success rates by limiting access.

We do recognize, however, that individuals and couples would like the assurance that they are choosing a “successful” program and so we are providing the following information as a starting point to evaluate our program. We present our data only in live birth rate per cycle start. Live birth rate is the only rate that matters to the patient. Furthermore presenting the data in cycle start eliminates any confusion and manipulation of data. Please keep in mind that individual or couple success rate may differ due to a variety of factors unique to that individual or couple.

Our IVF Data

(Last updated August 15, 2016)

We submit our statistics yearly to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). Please click here to view our latest success rates on its web site.

Age of Women <35 35-37
FFC 2014 62.5% 47.4%
U.S. 2014 48.6% 38.4%

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.
