Our Success Rates – Medical Fertility Treatments

Laurel Fertility Care is a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) and reports all treatment cycles performed at the clinic. The information compiled is also reported to the Center for Disease Control and these results are updated each year after all cycle outcomes have been reported. Each year we strive to improve our success to ensure that our patients will have access to the latest technologies and the best chances for conceiving and delivering successfully.

According to the CDC (2.5MB pdf), “A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics and treatment approaches vary from clinic to clinic. Some clinics are willing to offer ART to most potential users, even those who have a low probability of success. Others discourage such patients or encourage them to use donor eggs, a practice that results in higher success rates among older women. Clinics that accept a higher percentage of women who previously have had multiple unsuccessful ART cycles will generally have lower success rates. In contrast, clinics that offer ART procedures to patients who might have become pregnant with less technologically advanced treatment will have higher success rates.”
