Treatment Success Rates
With the guidance and care of our doctors, building the family that you have always dreamed of can become a reality. Highlights of our IVF and Donor Egg outcomes are displayed below. Full reports are available online at both the SART and CDC websites.
IVF Pregnancy Success Rates
The chance of having a baby via IVF depends in part on age. The graph below shows ACRM’s most recent published data.
In addition, some women have extra embryos from the initial cycle of treatment that are stored for later use by freezing. In our program, this freezing is done at the blastocyst stage by the method called “vitrification.”
Donor Egg Program
Some women use eggs from younger women to conceive. Our experience with these “donor eggs” is shown below. The “traditional” donor egg approach involved inseminating “fresh” eggs from a donor with sperm and then transferring a limited number of the resulting embryos into the recipient in a synchronized cycle. Our experience with this “traditional” approach is shown in the first bar of the graph, labelled “with fresh eggs.”
With the advent of vitrification, we can now freeze eggs successfully, so have established an “egg bank” in our program. This program is gaining popularity because it is simpler to do, does not involve synchronization of cycles or any delay in obtaining the eggs, and is significantly less costly. Results with the use of frozen eggs are shown in the bar labelled “with frozen eggs.” The third bar indicates the success with the use of frozen embryos, which can occur after either the “traditional” or “egg bank” approaches.
