Learn More About Our IVF Success Rates

As a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), the Fertility Center of San Antonio is required to report to the outcome of each patient’s fertility treatment. The Assisted Reproductive Technology report documents the patient’s data from the very beginning of their interactions with the fertility clinic and continuing over the course of their treatment, pregnancy, and birth. SART also requires clinics to report the type of treatment used (fresh or frozen eggs, for example) the number of cycles the clinic performed on each patient, the number of pregnancies and the number of live births, and individual program characteristics. Our team can help you better understand success rates including what they represent, how they are calculated, and what they mean for your treatment.

Please Note: A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches, and entry criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.

Fertility clinics are competitive and all strive to have the best success rates. Therefore, some clinics attempt to make their results appear better by being particularly selective about the patients they choose to accept (age, pregnancy potential, etc.). When choosing a fertility clinic, it is important to know their success rates, but also to make sure you’re choosing a clinic and doctor whose style fits yours.

Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)

TESE is a male factor procedure during which oocytes are injected with sperm extracted from testicular biopsy. We began performing TESE as a hospital procedure in 1994, and began offering TESE as an office-based procedure in 2001.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

PGD is an embryo biopsy that can be performed in conjunction with an IVF cycle to detect the presence of serious genetic diseases (such as Tay-Sachs, Sickle Cell Anemia, Cystic Fibrosis, etc). Our pregnancy success rates reported above are from the most recent data from 2014.

Tubal Reversal Success Rates

The success rates for a tubal reversal surgery vary depending on whether one or both tubes can be reversed and the length of the tube. That information is typically not known until the surgery is completed but we try to give the best estimate based on the information from your tubal ligation reports and the results of a hysterosalpingogram (HSG – dye test that shows how long the tube is coming off the uterus). Pregnancy rates have been reported between 40% and 80% depending on the above factors.

CDC Assisted Reproductive Technology:

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention also compiles data from SART at the end of each year for a complete audit. The CDC report is the most complete database of fertility clinic information. The CDC compiles all information after all births have been recorded in a given year, creating a lag in the reporting as compared to SART. The most recent CDC report available is for 2014. Some clinics may choose to not be members of SART but all are required to report their information to the CDC.
