Fertility treatment in a friendly relaxed environment
The ultimate measurement for success in IVF is whether patients end up taking home a baby.
IVF treatment can involve many (or just a few) stimulated and thaw cycles. The success of IVF treatment depends not only on the skills of the IVF team but also on the emotional fortitude, physical health maintenance, stamina and financial capacity of patients. A few find the stress or financial impact too much and stop treatment before achieving a baby, while others are able to persevere. Whichever the case, you need to do what is right for you.
To give you an idea of what outcomes are possible and the likely chances of achieving pregnancy we have included some statistics. Please be aware that not all IVF practices report the same statistics or produce them using the same methods for a variety of reasons.
In 2008 (including women of all ages), TasIVF achieved 200 pregnancies
- 53% were from fresh transfers
- 47% were from frozen transfers
- 90% of pregnancies resulted in a baby born
For women achieving their 1st pregnancy
- 70% were pregnant after their 1ststimulated cycle (includes the first fresh cycle and subsequent frozen cycles)
- On average a pregnancy occurred after 1.3 stimulated cycles
- On average a pregnancy occurred after 3 embryo transfers
Women who are going through their third stimulated cycle still have a better than 1 in 3 chance of achieving a pregnancy (includes the fresh cycle and subsequent frozen cycles)
