Success Rates in IVF

Success Rates in IVF

Pregnancy rates can be affected by many factors. Among them are, age of the woman, factors involving male sperm function (azoospermia, varicocele, etc), major illnesses in the patients' medical history, whether or not there there are prior pregnancies and live births.

We receive phone calls and email messages asking about our success rates. The exact meaning of success rate should be specified. If the focus is on achieving pregnancy then the method to confirm pregnancy is crucial. A positive pregnancy blood test, a gestational sac and a fetal heart rate seen on ultrasound, or even life birth could all be considered criteria for success rate. Also when calculating the ratio, the denominator is significant, the value could be the number of patients who began IVF treatment or number of patients who have had an embryo transfer. Regulations govern the number of embryos transferred depending on the patient's age and number of IVF attempts. Patients over the age of 35 or who have had two IVF attempts can have 2 embryos transferred back into the uterus. When the embryos are good quality, the number of embryos are directly proportional to a successful pregnancy rate. Although some patients could benefit from supernumerary embryo transfers (e.g.low ovarian reserve), the regulations which only consider age allow only one embryo to be transferred. This and many other aspects are complicated and open to discussion but cannot be simplified into one number designated to be the success rate.

One should also consider the percentages of infertile couples who get pregnant after three or four attempts at IVF. These cases are rarely mentioned but the approach to their treatment, planning their IVF related expenses, application of prior clinical experience, and other parameters should also be taken in to consideration when evaluating the success rate of a clinic. These kinds of criteria, however, are not helpful when comparing different IVF centers.

In summary, when our patients are looking at different IVF clinics for treatment, they can inquire about the experience of the clinicians, how long he/she has been working in this field. They can also ask about how long the clinic has been runnning. Asking a clinic that has been actively treating patients for 20 years about their success rate is not useful.

Asking an IVF center about their success rates regarding factors that are specific to the couple is relevant. This will provide helpful information for couples starting treatment for a particular infertility disorder. For example in a situation where a woman who is 41 years old, has had 4 unsuccessful IVF attempts, low ovarian reserve with 3-5 eggs per retrieval, substandard semen parameters, is told they have a 50% chance of pregnancy, they should avoid that clinic. Patients should be told of their chances of getting pregnant based on information pertaining to their specific infertility disorder before going through unnecessary expense.

I was really happy with the service that we got at Jinepol. However, I wish we had spoke with Dr Selim before making our visit, as we could have spent less time in Turkey. But all praise and thanks is due to ALLAH who has granted us our wish. We are of course especially grateful for the treatment ...

I am a medical doctor myself, working in UK NHS Hospitals. Me and my wife tried IVF once in the UK which unfortunately failed. We decided to search for a fertility clinic with a high standard and cheaper than UK IVF. We found Jinepol Clinic in Istanbul by searching on the internet. We were optimisti...

I had my first IVF treatment at Jinepol with Dr Selim and team. I am fortunate to say I was successful the first time and am no 5 weeks pregnant. I already have a 4 year old which took me 2 years to conceive naturally. I then underwent infertility testing in the UK- after 2 more years of trying f...

I highly recommend this clinic and team- extremely professional and excellent service. Everything was catered specifically for my individual needs rather than a list of protocols to follow as is in my home country. There can be a lot of anxiety about doing IVF abroad but with Dr Selim and tea...

We had a terrible experience with another clinic in New York City. My husband had a three million sperm count, yet doctors told us we are not eligible for IVF. We were forced to get sperm donations. We refused. The other clinic doctors are very rude and disorganized. They have lost several times our...
