Genea’s 2016 treatment cycles presented in accordance with the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) Code of Practice. Based on live births per embryo transfer for women using own eggs.
1. Fresh embryo transfers include IVF, ICSI and some PGD tested embryos.
2. Frozen embryo transfers include PGD and PGS tested embryos.
For further information on understanding success rates, please refer to the Fertility Society of Australia’s “Interpreting pregnancy rates: a consumer guide”
. When comparing clinic success rates you should ask if their publicly available success rates are compliant with RTAC guidelines.
Age significantly impacts fertility. Very few women over the age of 45 conceive using their own eggs, unless they freeze their eggs or embryos when they are younger, this is represented in the frozen embryo transfer live birth success rates.
Many factors can contribute to the likelihood of achieving a pregnancy or a live birth such as the cause of infertility, lifestyle (such as weight and smoking) and age. It is important to note that unfortunately not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze.
