There are 2 ways to do independent research if you are a patient on IVF Success Rates:
- Centers For Disease Control (CDC)
- Society For Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART)
Centers For Disease Control (CDC)
The CDC is a governmental organization. All fertility clinics are required by federal law to report their IVF success rates to the government each year. The CDC collects this data and releases a report called the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Report. The report can be looked at by state, by clinic, by year as well as looking at a National Average Report.
The benefit of these reports is that all clinics have to track the data in the same way. The CDC has a good explanation of each item in the report right on their website. The only drawback of the report is that the data is a bit dated as it takes months for live birth rate data to become available. For this reason, Advanced Fertility Care provides more recent data in CDC format on our website.
