The issue of success rates is of course one of the most emotional and complex subjects for those seeking fertility treatments such as IVF and Gender Selection. While success rates are an important indicator of the performance level of a particular clinic, the numbers themselves can often be totally misleading or even manipulated.
In reality, success is an entirely individual factor that relates only to you and your partner. You are not simply numbers on a statistics chart, but important and unique human beings with individual needs that have to be addressed on a personal level.
Many clinics claim that they have results 70/80% for ED and SM procedures. But this seem not to be actually true. The published data (See attached files beneath) do not confirm this and it is most probable that these result are for very selected cases and not statistically relevant.
At New Life Georgia, We calculated and analyzed the pregnancy results for the last years, starting from 2008 October, till the present day. The procedures for the New Life patients can be divided into 6 categories:
- Fresh IVF/ICSI, with patient’s own oocytes, with SM;
- Fresh IVF/ICSI, with ED, without SM;
- Fresh IVF/ICSI, with ED, with SM;
- Frozen embryo transfer (FET), with patient’s own oocytes, with SM;
- FET, with ED, without SM;
- FET, with ED, with SM.
As outcomes of the analyze show, the pregnancy results do not very much depend upon the use of Surrogate mother , but more upon the use of Egg Donor in fresh IVF/ICSI or in Frozen embryo transfer. Therefore, we re-grouped the procedures as follows and indicated percentage of success rate of our patients.
- Category 1. IVF/ICSI Fresh, with patient’s own oocytes, with SM-42%
- Category 2. IVF/ICSI, with ED, with/without SM-58 %
- Category 3. FET, with patient’s own oocytes, with SM-39%
- Category 4. FET, with ED, with/without SM-57%
To conclude, if we consider the use of donated eggs, our results for IVF/ICSI/FET treatments are very similar (or even superior) to that reported for the entire Europe. However, saying above does not preclude that we stop working on improvements of our technologies to achieve better results.
