Our fertility treatment success rates mean live births, not clinical pregnancies
The Assisted Reproductive Technology Program at Dallas IVF is consistently out preforms national clinic averages for pregnancy rates in the United States. All of Dallas IVF’s treatment cycles have been reported to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). In accordance with SART guidelines, Dallas IVF reports its success rates by live births.
The reporting of success rates by clinical pregnancies (cardiac activity present on early obstetrical sonogram), or positive pregnancy tests only, is considered misleading. We emphasize success rates for take home babies.
You may notice that our rates vary by year. Unlike many programs that may only accept the ‘best,’ candidates into their IVF programs, our program is among the most “open,” in the Southwest United States. We commonly accept IVF patients with FSH values as high as 15 or 18, whereby many programs may only accept patients who have FSH values below 10, or 12. Furthermore, over 20% of our IVF patients have failed or been denied treatments at other regional programs. Many of these patients, often labeled as ‘poor candidates,’ or, ‘poor responders,’ are able to achieve positive outcomes with our program. Restricting access to our IVF program may inflate our rates, but that is not what we are about.
