Success Rates

One of the key considerations to decide the right clinic for you is the success rate. It is however important to be aware that the published success rates may have some limitations and various factors play a role.

The best way to know your own chances of success from IVF/ICSI treatment at the Reproductive Health Group is to meet with one of our consultants. But, if you want to learn about our success rates according to the source of eggs and the female partner age you can see the verified and externally audited data below.

At the Reproductive Health Group we prefer to culture the great majority of embryo to blastocyst stage for transfer and we only freeze blastocysts for future use in frozen cycles. We believe that this approach is crucial to achieve consistently high results for all our patients, irrespective of using own eggs or donor frozen eggs.

As a licensed IVF centre we report all our results to the independent regulator the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA) who publish these on their website. Results prior to 2016 and live birth rate data is available at www.hfea.gov.uk but due to the nature of the reporting process this information is not current and relates to treatment carried out approximately two years ago.

Information on choosing a clinic and national average success rates can also be found on the HFEA website along with further advice on interpreting success rates:
