Success rates play a major part in helping many patients choose which clinic to attend. We strongly encourage all patients to review success rates before choosing their clinic.
Success rates can be misleading, with clinics often publishing only selected figures which have been chosen to entice you. High success rates of 50% or more should give rise for concern, such is the case with our preliminary data which shows great success rates but not statistically significant because the numbers are low.
All clinics should give success rates for clinical pregnancies (where at least one fetal heart has been confirmed) per treatment cycle started.
Much of the success of a clinic is due to the laboratory, the control centre for all of the Embryology. Good quality laboratories managed by experienced decision making scientists significantly enhance the success of the clinic. We are currently work with our sister clinic Boston Place in Marylebone, London who have just that. We have their latest success rates tabled below for your reference. As you can see these are very encouraging success rates, especially for the older patients.
Success rates have improved significantly over the last few years due to improved quality systems and shared practice, but perhaps more influenced by the advanced time lapse incubators (Embryoscope) and the development of the culture medium in which the embryo are growing.
