Genea IVF Success Rates
Every couple who embarks on IVF has the same dream – taking home a healthy baby. Many factors will contribute to the likelihood of achieving this and it can be difficult to give definitive answers to questions about the chance of success for any individual couple. Different couples, for example, have quite different causes for their fertility problems.
At Genea, we are committed to providing the best chance of achieving the dream of parenthood through our consistent investment in our world leading science and individualised care. And our success rates show we are able to live up to that promise.
How we compare to other clinics
Below we have included the nationwide data which is the only true basis available for comparison. Genea has consistently provided the best possible chance of success for couples, compared to the average of other clinics, in Australia and New Zealand. In fact our birth rate per embryo transfer is more than 30% higher than the average of other clinics, according to analysis of the latest available data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (ANZARD data). See graph below which compares the average success rate of all Genea procedures (ie. all clinics, all age groups, all procedure types – fresh, thaw, donor, PGD) against the average of all procedures from all other clinics in Australia and New Zealand.

Advances in nurturing embryos
Embryo culture media are the important solutions which support egg, sperm and embryo development outside the human body, providing them with the nutrients they need to develop and grow.
Genea scientists began developing our own embryo culture media in the early 1990s and since then we have regularly improved the formula. Due to the proven effectiveness of Genea’s embryo culture media, it is currently used in more than 600 clinics across 60 countries (registered as Sydney IVF Media).
We are excited that over the past year, Genea scientists have conducted a clinical trial of our next generation of new embryo culture media involving 673 patients, across all age groups, and more than 15,000 oocytes. We expect to be able to tell you more about the results of this trial soon.
World-leading science, detailed diagnostics and tailor-made treatment
We believe the secret to our success lies in not only providing the highest quality laboratories and in being at the forefront of scientific research and medical advances in fertility treatment, but also ensuring contributing issues are addressed, such as the impact of weight and lifestyle choices on fertility. This ensures patients embark on the best course of action to maximise their individual chance of having a healthy baby.
Sometimes less obvious factors can make a huge difference to the chance of an IVF cycle succeeding, including the type of medication protocol chosen by your doctor and the timing of the egg collection.
Procedures at the right time for your body not at our convenience
Genea doctors will tailor the right medications for you and egg collections are undertaken on every day of the week, at the precise time that your eggs should be retrieved We believe that limiting egg collection to only a small number of days in the week is not ideal.
Experience the Genea difference
Our philosophy is to help couples in the least number of IVF attempts, in an individualised and supportive environment. The majority of couples who have treatment elsewhere and then come to us, report a better experience and achieve a better outcome.
We want you to make your first choice, your best choice – by choosing Genea.
