IVF Success Rates

Every couple who embarks on a fertility journey has the same dream – having a baby. It’s the only real measure of success.

What’s my chance of success?

Whether you’re just starting to research IVF or you’re looking for a second opinion, you’ve probably figured out that there are many variations of success rates and many don’t tell the full story. So what do these figures really mean to you and how can you use them to decide which IVF clinic to select?

Many factors will contribute to the likelihood of achieving your dream of having a baby. Everyone has different reasons as to why they’re struggling to conceive. Some will have a greater impact, whilst others will have a smaller impact. It’s important to note that unfortunately not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze. For this reason it can be difficult to give definitive answers to questions about the chance of success for individuals or couples. Female age is the biggest factor influencing your chance of success so we can give you guidance based on your age in the graphs below.

Success at Genea    

At Genea, we’re committed to improving treatment outcomes through 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.

Comparing Genea to other clinics

The reality is that it’s difficult to compare clinics. There isn’t a single, uniform way of calculating IVF success rates in Australia and every clinic has their own way of presenting their IVF statistics using different age cohorts or clinical pregnancy rates versus live births – it can be very confusing.

That’s why at Genea we use industry information calculated by the University of NSW for 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.
