Success Rates for IVF, IVF using Donor Eggs, Frozen Eggs and Frozen Embryo Transfer
Click here to see the data of SART (Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology) website. A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entry criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.
NCCRM is known for treating the most difficult cases, patients that other fertility clinics turn away to protect their success rates. For example, many clinics refuse to do in vitro fertilization (IVF) on women whose AMH is less than 1.0 and whose FSH is greater than 9. Because we are willing to give these women a chance, our success rates vary from year to year. However, if we took these particular patients out of the equation, our success rates would reflect differently. Our mission is to help couples conceive, even against the toughest odds. When we say, “hope is here,” we mean it. We understand the responsibility that patients give us and we strive to be the best stewards of your time, emotions and finances. NCCRM will not push couples to go through unnecessary procedures that have a dismal prognosis just to make additional fees while avoiding treatments that could work but jeopardize our clinic’s pregnancy rates.Our specialists treat each couple with a customized plan of care by closely examining what you have already been through and what makes the most sense for you, not us. We listen to you and give you our best guidance along your fertility journey. As our motto says, “we deliver dreams, one baby at a time.”
**We perform frozen cycles rather than fresh cycles. Only centers that have a great freezing program can perform this, as the quality of embryos after thaw is critical. Our practice is one of the best at the new technique, known as vitrification. This is the method we use in our egg bank. Eggs are very sensitive to freezing and we have had wonderful success with frozen eggs. Embryos are less sensitive to vitrification, so it has made frozen embryos a much more successful procedure than in the past. Freeze all cycles also allow us to be more aggressive with stimulation since we trigger in a manner that will never cause hyperstimulation and hyperstimulation is the riskiest part of IVF. This cycle allows a patient to stimulate once and transfer embryos as needed in the future. (NCCRM can usually freeze 8-10 embryos after one stimulation cycle.) In addition, freezing all your eggs allows those worried about having too many frozen embryos for the future, to only fertilize a couple of eggs and freeze eggs for future use as needed. Finally, research has also shown that frozen cycles have resulted in healthier babies that have a higher birth weight.
