While planning treatment such as in vitro fertilisation, patients always ask themselves a question, ‘What are my chances?’
The success rates presented below were calculated and demonstrated in a clear and reliable way, showing effectiveness for each treatment stage.
In order to determine treatment effectiveness in the most precise manner, it is worthwhile to consider one full in vitro fertilisation cycle, i.e. one hormonal stimulation that ends with collection of eggs, fertilisation and embryo culture. The embryos are then consecutively transferred as part of the embryo transfer procedures (fresh or frozen-thawed embryos) until clinical pregnancy has been achieved. The analysis below includes all the patients under 38 years of age who initiated in vitro treatment in 2017 (the date of egg collection being the moment of therapy beginning). We checked whether they managed to get pregnant (ultrasound-confirmed clinical pregnancy) within a year of the therapy initiation. A majority of patients underwent only one embryo transfer while the others – two or three procedures. There were also patients who did not receive embryos for various reasons.
Thus, we have calculated the chances of getting pregnant for a woman who starts treatment at our Centre and undergoes one cycle of in vitro fertilisation.
We understand how stressful it is to wait for a pregnancy test result following the embryo transfer. Frequently, for certain medical reasons, this is an awaited transfer of a frozen embryo. Transfer effectiveness, defined as the presence of clinical pregnancy, is presented below.
We consider the treatment to be successful when a child is born. Therefore, we carefully track pregnancies after embryo transfers and collect information on childbirths.
