2018 Live Birth Rates
Preliminary Clinic Summary Report
Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology:
“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.”
“This report is completely re-designed from the past. We did this to provide patients with outcomes that reflect changes in the way infertility is treated through IVF. In recent years, there has been increased emphasis on embryo cryopreservation, genetic testing, and single-embryo transfer that was not adequately captured by the old reporting system. This report captures the treatment burden to the patient (the number of cycles) as well as the best outcome (delivery of a healthy child) by tracking outcomes over time for an individual, accounting for both fresh and frozen embryo transfers. We hope this will help you better understand the expected outcomes from Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). If you want to get a more personalized prognosis for your chances, please visit the SART patient predictor.”
CDC Reporting: Fertility clinics are required to report their IVF success rates to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in accordance with the Fertility Clinic Success Rates Act. At this time, the most recent preliminary success rates available on the CDC website are for the year 2018. We encourage all our patients to please visit http://www.cdc.gov/art/ for further information, and to view national summary data.
Utah Fertility Center is a center committed to offering its patients outstanding pregnancy rates and outcomes. Our practice belongs to the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), and we adhere by its strict guidelines.
Important Note: The success rates on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) site can be difficult to interpret. A comparison of clinical success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches, and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic. Please discuss with your physician any questions or concerns you have about the CDC’s statistics.
We are currently collecting 2019 and 2020 success rates to be published in the Annual Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) Report for 2020. There is a two-year delay in the SART report due to the fact that SART must await and collect accurate delivery information on babies conceived with advanced reproductive technology.
