Before choosing a fertility doctor, you must know how to read and interpret official IVF pregnancy success records. Look: Before deciding on a fertility doctor, you should ask about his IVF as well as FET pregnancy success rates. Why is this important? Today, more and more pregnancy success is accomplished through Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures.
The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) is the official source to which fertility specialists report their IVF and FET pregnancy success rates. You can also look to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for IVF and FET pregnancy success and birth rates.
SART is a fertility specialist organization that is dedicated to setting professional standards in the practice of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Its mission is to inform and serve fertility specialists and their patients.
Accurate and complete reporting of IVF pregnancy success rates reported by the members of SART is complicated because of the variation of ART practice from clinic to clinic. These differences may inflate or lower IVF pregnancy rates provided by another clinic.
IVF and FET pregnancy success rates vary from clinic to clinic based on:
All fertility specialists in the United States report and verify data on their IVF and FET pregnancy procedures over a calendar year period.
Yearly data on IVF and FET pregnancy success rates is a valuable source of information for every patient. This rich data gives patients a better idea of their average chances of pregnancy through IVF and FET.
IVF and FET pregnancy success rates can be misleading when based on a small number of transfer procedure performed. At New Hope Fertility Center, we omit graphed data when there are less than 20 transfers in a segment.
IVF and FET pregnancy success rates vary in the context of each patient’s individual characteristics and the doctor’s recommended protocol.
It is important to work with a fertility specialist having the experience required to design a customized IVF and FET treatment protocol meeting your personal needs. To schedule your initial consultation with Dr. John Zhang – call 917.525.5496.
