Success rates may be misleading if they are based on a small number. In consideration, we omit graphed data if there are less than 20 transfers in a category. You can still find the outcome for these groups expressed as a fraction in the table following the graphed data. The bottom of the fraction indicates the number of transfers and the top shows the number of live births.
|Fresh Embryos - Live Birth Rate||51.3||2 / 11||2 / 5||0.0||2 / 2|
|Fresh Embryos - Average Embryos Transferred||1.9||2.0||2.0||0.0||2.0|
|Fresh Embryos - Number of Cycles||47||11||5||0||2|
