Clinical pregnancy rates
At Fertility North, low technology treatment is undertaken wherever possible, with IVF and ICSI reserved for those patients that need it. This makes repeat cycles easier with an improved cumulative rate of pregnancy, as well as reducing the number of patients that must undergo expensive and invasive procedures.
Overall, clinical pregnancies are achieved in 13% of artificial insemination cycles using husband’s sperm and 15% cycles using donated sperm. It is important to note that these results are a combination of the all patients and is not divided into below and above 35 years of age. As with the other cycle types below, the success of an artificial insemination cycle will vary depending on the age of the woman at the time of the cycle.
The proportions of embryo transfers for IVF, ICSI and frozen embryo transfers (FET) that result in a clinical pregnancy are shown below. These results show that the age of the woman is an important factor, and that embryos frozen for future use can achieve good pregnancy rates.
