DONOR EGG IVF Recipients

Live birth per initiated cycle with First Attempt* per IVF treatment#











Outcome per transfer:
Live birth per fresh** embryo transfer











All attempts per treatment#: Preliminary chance of live birth per patient = cumulative live birth rate per initiated cycle of all attempts fresh + frozen per patient





















*Many IVF treatment cycles purposefully do not have a **fresh embryo (not cryopreserved/frozen) embryo transfer and all embryos are cryopreserved and warmed at a later date for uterine transfer. The first transfer after an egg retrieval can be either fresh or frozen-thawed and is the “primary transfer” or “first attempt”.
#IVF Treatment is defined as one attempt at ovarian stimulation intended for egg retrieval for IVF.

Frozen-Thawed Embryo Transfer from Non-Egg Donor- live birth rate (all ages combined) for 2014):  46% (30/66). Per age group: <35: 48%, 35-37: 3/9, 38-40: 7/11, 41,42: 1/4.

Frozen-Thawed Embryo Transfer from Egg Donor- live birth rate for 2014 = 5/19

Note above we do not quote “clinical pregnancy” rates or other confusing terms which include ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages. We only quote live birth rates!

Also don’t be confused when other clinics quote pregnancy rates from egg retrieval or embryo transfer to give the appearance that their success rates are higher.

Note that the lower row is the chance that attempting one ovarian stimulation with medications for IVF will result in a live birth after all embryos have been transferred from that stimulation: both fresh and frozen-thawed. This is often what couples really want to know.

Above does not include cycles initiated INTENDING to “bank” eggs or embryos or “freeze all” embryos (examples- preimplantation genetic diagnosis, fertility preservation).

The SART web site shows detailed success rates data for all participating clinics. A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.
