Success rates play a major part in helping many patients choose which clinic to attend. We strongly encourage all patients to review success rates before choosing their clinic.
Here at TFP Thames Valley Fertility, we are proud to publish our latest age-related data in an unselected population.
It should be noted that information on success rates alone are of limited value when comparing clinics and choosing where to seek treatment, as there are many other factors that may help you decide if a clinic is right for you. Please see the HFEA advice on choosing a clinic.
If you are planning to undergo fertility treatment, you want to know that the clinic you have chosen has a good track record of success. You can compare success rates on each clinic’s website or on the HFEA website.
Our success rates are broken down by female age and treatment type and are updated regularly. You can compare them to national benchmarks and other clinics by visiting the HFEA website.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) publish success rates for every licensed clinic in the UK, usually every six months of the year. They show the number of treatments cycles carried out in a particular year, they also show the number of clinical pregnancies and live births.
It is important to recognise that success rates have their limitations and a number of things can affect your success rates, including
the reason for infertility
the type of treatments available at the clinic
the expertise of the clinic staff
the clinic’s treatment practices
