Fertility Success Rates

Find the best IVF clinics based on live birth rate

If you are considering In Vitro Fertilization, there can be many factors to evaluate prior to making a treatment decision. One important point of data that may help you make a treatment decision is the success rates for the fertility clinic where you are considering IVF treatment.

We created this website to help patients find and compare IVF success rates, understand the data, and make a more informed treatment decision.

IVF Success Rates in the United States

According to the most recent National ART Outcomes Report published by the CDC, there were 174,962 IVF cycles performed in 2013. Average success rates based on live birth per transfer of fresh embryos is listed below:

  Age < 35 Age 35-37 Age 38-40 Age 41-42 Egg Donation
Number of cycles 36,958 18,508 16,853 9,026 8,921
Percentage of transfers resulting in live births 47.7 39.2 28.5 16.3 56.1
Average number of embryos transferred 1.8 1.9 2.3 2.7 1.7
IVF Procedure Success

By federal law, all certified IVF laboratories are required to submit IVF success rate data on an annual basis to the Center for Disease Control. If you are considering treatment at a fertility clinic that does not publish their results to the CDC, you should definitely ask why they do not follow this regulatory obligation. The law exists because some clinics have inflated their success numbers to attract patients. The current system isn't perfect. There are still ways to manipulate IVF success rate data.

The law also requires that the data be made public. The CDC publishes IVF success rates for individual clinics with the disclaimer that "consumers should carefully examine all related financial, psychological, and medical issues before beginning treatment."

We completely agree and offer this comparison data with hopes that it will be used as part of a larger decision making process. You can start by viewing the most successful IVF clinics in America.
