Sometimes it's hard to know how accurate a clinic's success rates are, and trying to understand what you're likely to pay for fertility treatment can be a minefield. We try to keep it simple.
Success rates at London Fertility Centre
Success rates show the percentage of clinical pregancies or live births that result from a clinic's fertility treatment cycles. (A clinical pregnancy is where a fetal heartbeat is seen on ultrasound scan, around 5-6 weeks after the IVF procedure)
The majority of fertility centres including London Fertility Centre have success rates around the national average. We are proud of our success rates and the high standard of care we offer, which have lead to the birth of thousands of babies through treatment at at the London Fertility Centre.
Success rates should only be used as a general guide to a clinic's performance, because although the criteria for reporting pregancies is standardised, the selection criteria of clinics is not. That means some clinics can choose to only treat patients who have a high chance of success, therefore not portraying transparent success rates for the wider patient population.
At London Fertility Centre it has always been our practice to put you in the driving seat when it comes to your treatment options. Whether your chances are very slim or really quite strong, we believe you should be given the facts, then presented with the options.
We provide fertility treatment for women using their own eggs up to the age of 44 complete years, and for women using donated eggs up to 49 completed years. We have put this limit in place in the best interests of our patients as there is an extremely remote chance of conceiving past these ages.
When choosing a fertility centre there are a number of important factors to consider. Location, treatments, services, and specialists available. You may want to look at the HFEA inspection reports for a clinic by visiting www.hfea.co.uk
