IVF and egg donation success rates vary greatly between clinics
Gurnee, IL (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Our Egg Donor and IVF success rates are above the national average for a fifteenth consecutive year, announces the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
“We continue to see very high egg donation success rates in our egg donor program. We are also seeing excellent success rates in our in vitro fertilization program using own eggs. Year after year, our egg donation live birth success rates have been among the very highest in the country,” says Dr. Richard Sherbahn, Medical Director at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
“The data from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) for our clinic show the result of our stringent quality control and dedication to providing our patients the highest possible success rates.”
The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) recently released 2011 data on U.S. fertility clinics’ success rates for in vitro fertilization and egg donation programs. These statistics show that the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago has success rates that are among the highest in the U.S.
According to the SART 2011 IVF success rates report, the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago achieved an egg donation success rate (live birth rate) of 80% per embryo transfer in 2011. This success rate is 45% higher than the national average rate for egg donation of 55%.
For women under 35, having IVF using their own eggs, Advanced Fertility showed a 60% live birth success rate per egg retrieval. This is 40% higher than the national average rate of 43%.
“SART makes it very easy to check success rates for any fertility clinic,” Dr. Sherbahn explains. “The SART report is released on the web every year and is available to the public. Every clinic has its own listing page that shows its IVF and egg donation success rates.” Although not every IVF program in the country reports their data to SART, the vast majority do so.
The Fertility Clinic Success Rates and Certification Act was passed by the federal government in 1992. That law mandates all IVF and egg donation clinics to report annual IVF success rate data to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Most IVF centers report their IVF and egg donation statistics to SART, who then passes the data on to the CDC. Some IVF clinics do not report to SART and report only directly to the CDC. A small percentage of clinics violate federal law and do not report IVF outcome statistics at all.
“This report by SART marks another record setting year for us. Our clinics are intimate and personal, which allows us to focus attention on the individual patient,” says Dr. Sherbahn. “Our 2011 egg donation success rates are worthy of particular notice since this makes two years in a row that our egg donation live birth success rates have been 80% or higher.
