Understanding Fertility Success Rates

Fertility success rates can reveal important information about a clinic

At our San Antonio fertility center, we are proud to share our excellent fertility success rates with our patients. Success rates at fertility clinics can vary depending on individual patient characteristics and the types of treatments that are done.

Fertility success rates for oral and injectable medications with insemination

The goal of oral and injectable medication cycles is to increase the chances of pregnancy to that experienced by a couple of the same age who is not facing fertility struggles. For example, a 25 year old woman (without known fertility issues) has a 25% chance of getting pregnant every month. However, a 40-year-old woman (without known fertility issues) has a less than 5% chance of getting pregnant each month.

Fertility success rates with IUI can vary significantly depending on the patient’s age, sperm numbers, and numerous other factors. With oral and injectable medications combined with insemination, the physicians at our San Antonio fertility center optimize your chances of finding the right egg and sperm combination quickly and efficiently.

Fertility success rates for in vitro fertilization (IVF)

Fertility success rates for IVF largely depend on the age of the egg used as well as the experience of the clinic. The Society for Reproductive Technology (SART) publishes an annual report that presents success rates from different IVF clinics. It is important to understand that accurate reporting of fertility success rates for IVF is complicated. The best estimate for your personal fertility success rate will come from your fertility doctor who knows your case the best.

The Clinic Summary Report gives IVF success rates based on the age of the egg used for IVF. Chances of a live birth can exceed 50-60% in women under age 35. As eggs age, the chances of live birth decrease. With preimplantation genetic testing for chromosomal abnormalities (PGT-A), the transfer of chromosomally normal embryos can yield a live birth rate above 60%, regardless of age.

Fertility success rates defined by a healthy singleton

Our San Antonio fertility center is proud to share that the majority of our IVF pregnancies are singleton deliveries. Twin and triplet pregnancies are higher risk for both the mom and the babies. Twins and triplets have a higher risk of preterm delivery, NICU admissions and stillbirth or cerebral palsy. The best way to reduce the chance of twins or triplets from IVF is to reduce the number of embryos transferred. Our fertility specialists prioritize the transfer of a single embryo whenever possible to maximize the chances of a healthy singleton pregnancy for the growing family.
