Fertility Treatment Success Rates: A Fresh Look at Fertility Treatment Statistics

Fertility treatment success rates are typically given based on live births following one round of treatment, otherwise known as a single cycle.  But recently researchers started investigating success rates for women undergoing multiple cycles.  The results may give intended parents new hope.  It is reported that among nearly 250,000 U.S. women treated with ART in 2004-2009, 57% achieved a live birth and 30% of all ART cycles were successful.  This data suggests that “women in their 30s and 40s who undergo multiple infertility treatments may be nearly as likely to deliver a baby as women who conceive naturally.”  Looking at success rates as a whole, not per cycle, reminds patients that fertility treatment may be a multi-cycle process, in addition, the information can help keep intended parents hopeful throughout the potentially long process.  Of course, many fertility patients stop after one cycle due to financial restraints.  Traveling internationally for treatment is one option to help lower your overall costs…however, this new research should remind intended parents that you may be taking more than one trip to your overseas destination…
