Every couple who embarks on a fertility journey has the same dream – having a baby. It’s the only real measure 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?
*According to analysis of the latest available data (2014) released September 2016 from the Australian and New Zealand Assisted Reproduction Database (ANZARD) and based on live births per embryo transfer for women using own eggs. Notes: Many factors can contribute to the likelihood of achieving a pregnancy or a live birth such as the cause of infertility, lifestyle and age. It’s important to note that unfortunately not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze.

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.
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. Our IVF success rates show that we live up to that promise. For further information on understanding success rates, please refer to the Fertility Society of Australia’s "Interpreting pregnancy rates: a consumer guide".
Use the IVF Success Calculator below to see Genea success rates for women who had their first IVF cycle at Genea after the age of 35 and how that success rate declines two years later.
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.
Whilst your chances of success at Genea are over 75 per cent if you are under 35, after this age, your chances will start to decline. Use the below IVF Success Calculator below to determine your chance of taking home a baby if you have your first IVF cycle at Genea after the age of 35 and what happens to your chances if you were to wait two years^.
