Our very latest success rates are just in, and they show that for many of our IVF patients, the chance of taking home a baby is over 50%.
Impressive IVF success rates indeed, and we’d be more than happy to shout about them from every online advert or marketing campaign we do from now on, like many other IVF clinics do.
But that’s where Manchester Fertility is different. We’re open and honest with our patients about everything we do. And this includes your actual chances of taking home a baby.
So let’s look further at that high success rate in our headline. It’s accurate that for January to July 2015, we had clinical pregnancy rates per embryo transfer of 52%.
But these numbers relate only to women aged under 35. Where naturally, success rates are always higher because of the age of the patient, and therefore the quality of the eggs used.
It doesn’t mean that your chance of success is over 50%. Because every single patient we treat is different. Everyone is different in age. You all have your own infertility diagnosis to overcome, and different test results. You all respond differently to ovarian stimulation, and embryo transfer.
It would be wholly wrong and misleading for us to publish our under 35, 52% success rate in such a headline way, without explaining exactly who it applies to and the technology and innovations that were used.
We never give false hope to our patients about chances of success. When you come to us, we will tell you how likely your treatment will work, based on your individual test results and all the different factors that apply to you and your partner.
We will only ever recommend proven, evidence-based treatments that give you the best chance of success, all delivered by an expert team that’s not only passionate about helping you achieve a family, but that personally cares.
Our ethical stance, especially around IVF success rates, is one of the reasons so many patients from across Cheshire, Manchester, the North West and beyond have trusted us to help them over the past 30 years, and continue to do so each and every day.
