IVF Success Rates

Every couple who embarks on a fertility journey has the same dream – taking home a healthy baby. Many factors will contribute to the likelihood they’ll achieve this dream and it can be difficult to give definitive answers to questions about the chance of success for individuals or couples. Everyone has different reasons they’re struggling to conceive, some reasons have a big impact on your chance of success and some have a smaller impact.

At Genea, we’re committed to providing the best chance of achieving the dream of parenthood through our consistent investment in our world leading science and individualised care. It’s not just a throwaway line for us - it’s something we deeply believe in and as you’ll find, our staff live and breathe it every single day. And our success rates of IVF show we live up to that promise.

How we compare to other clinics

The reality is that it’s difficult to compare clinics. Every clinic has their own way of presenting their IVF statistics using different age cohorts or clinical pregnancy rates versus live births - no wonder you’re confused. That’s why here at Genea we only use the industry information sourced from the Australian and New Zealand Assisted Reproduction Database (ANZARD) report, an annual review of IVF in Australia and New Zealand which we believe is the only true independent basis for comparison.

The information in the ANZARD report shows Genea consistently provides the best possible chance of success for couples, compared to the average of all other Australian and New Zealand clinics combined. In fact, our birth rate per embryo transfer recently increased from over 30 per cent*, to 40 per cent higher than the average of other clinics**. You can read the latest report and historical reports on the ANZARD website.
