The true measure of success

Through our application of the latest scientific advancements in the treatment of infertility and ongoing refinements in our clinical and laboratory techniques, New England Fertility continually achieves high pregnancy rates resulting in healthy live births.

To learn more about in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates*, visit the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) website. (Note: A comparison of individual clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient selection, patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches, cycle cancellation, and the number of embryos transferred vary from clinic to clinic.)

As you will see, SART statistics are reported in different categories, including IVF with fresh and frozen eggs as well as IVF from donor eggs, and emphasize a woman’s age as one of the most significant factors in determining success.

Reporting Success Rates

Clinics in the United States that use assisted reproductive technology (ART) are required by law to report outcomes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most U.S. fertility programs follow the guidelines of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) in reporting success rates. Each year, SART and the CDC collect, compile, and publish clinic-specific data. Results are organized by state and procedure. The data also includes information on pregnancy outcomes, such as the rate of miscarriage, twins, and other multiple births.

New England Fertility has been a member in good standing of SART since 1991 and reports its results annually.

* Per the CDC, “ART includes all fertility treatments in which both eggs and sperm are handled. In general, ART procedures involve surgically removing eggs from a woman’s ovaries, combining them with sperm in the laboratory, and returning them to the woman’s body or donating them to another woman. They do NOT include treatments in which only sperm are handled (i.e., intrauterine—or artificial—insemination) or procedures in which a woman takes medicine only to stimulate egg production without the intention of having eggs retrieved.”
