Our IVF Success Rates
IVF Success Rates at Dallas - Fort Worth Fertility Associates
IVF success rates must be reported to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in accordance with the “Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certification Act of 1992”. IVF success (delivery rates) for Dallas Fertility Associates Dallas Tx fertility clinic for 2006 and onwards are reported based on the physician Practice (individual or group practices) as is recommended by the Society for Assisted Reproduction (SART).
IVF success rates are influenced by many factors making it difficult to compare individual clinics. For example, if a clinic has a higher percentage of younger women undergoing IVF their IVF success rates will likely be higher. We treat a wide variety of women and all age groups are represented.
The CDC/SART provides guidelines for reporting data thus helping to ensure consistency in reporting. When a clinic reports a particular success rate you must learn which parameters are being used. For example, are the rates for live births per cycle initiated, live births per transfer, chemical pregnancy, etc. The SART data clearly presents some of these rates, however, the data should not be used to compare individual clinics.
