Despite considerable advances in recent years, IVF remains a complex, and expensive treatment.

The chance of a successful treatment cycle does depend to some extent on the reason why you cannot conceive naturally, and on your age. Studies have shown that just over 55% of women under the age of 34 will conceive after completing 5 treatment cycles of IVF.

Key Points

The tables above show the LCRM clinic data for 2014. For national average data please refer to the HFEA website and look at the results for LCRM compared to the national average. Please note that the results published on the HFEA website are currently for year ending September 2013. The reason for this is that the HFEA data is published after a verification process with the clinics. It is also necessary to wait for up to a year after the treatment for the patient to report the birth of their child.

Note for patients: The HFEA guideline for all centres is to reduce the multiple pregnancy rate below 10% overall. Our data clearly shows that success rates are not improved by double embryo transfer but multiple pregnancy rate becomes very high and this is not in the interest of good pregnancy outcome. Please refer to “Risks in Multiple pregnancy” and “Our mission-One at a Time” in our booklets. We are in the process of performing further analysis of our data to see if double embryo transfer benefits any group.

Recent advances: Genesis is pleased to offer ‘Time Lapse Photography-Embryo Sure’ and ‘Endometrial Scratch’ both of which are 2 new developments that we expect will further improve our success rates. Please ask your consultant for further information
