The Bloom IVF success rates have continued to increase thanks to the dedicated and
innovative work of our clinical team who focus on continuous improvements in processes
In comparing success rates, many factors contribute to a clinic's results.
These factors include the range of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) offered
by the clinic and the criteria for allowing treatment. A clinic's success rate may
vary from year-to-year with the introduction of new reproductive technologies. However,
the more cycles a clinic carries out, the less the rate is likely to vary.
Some clinics see more patients with difficult infertility problems, even though
the probability of achieving success is low. Other clinics discourage such patients
and only treat those with a high probability of achieving a pregnancy. At Bloom
IVF we treat all patients, even those who have been unsuccessful elsewhere.
Will my ivf be successful?
Bloom IVF Specialist will advise you as to your specific treatment options, and
will also explain to you your chances of success, taking into consideration your
type of infertility, your age and your treatment. ART procedures have progressed
rapidly since their development and so have the associated success rates, but generalised
success rates can be misleading due to the individuality of each patient's situation.
There are many hurdles to cross during treatment and it is wise to keep in mind
that they all have to be successfully crossed to get to what we are all striving
for - a baby to take home.
It is better to be well prepared than to have to deal with unexpected events during
this important, and sometimes-difficult stage of your lives.
Success rates can be affected by many factors, including:
Age of the female partner
Conditions contributing to infertility
Quality of eggs and number of eggs recovered
Quality of sperm (including motility and ability to penetrate the egg)
Quality control in the laboratories; and
Skill and competence of the treatment team
Although ART offers important options for the treatment of fertility problems, the
decision to use ART involves many factors in addition to success rates. Going through
repeated ART cycles requires substantial commitments of time, effort, money, and
emotional energy. Therefore, you should carefully examine all related financial,
psychological and medical issues, before beginning treatment.
The Age Factor
The age of the female partner is the most significant factor in treatment cycle
In a stimulated IVF treatment cycle, injections of FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone)
are used to stimulate follicular growth and the development of eggs. As female age
increases, the average number of follicles (eggs) produced decreases and treatment
may be cancelled if the follicle number is not suitable.
The pregnancy rates for patients having routine treatment for IVF decreases quite
significantly from around 35 years of age.
Elective Single Embryo Transfer
More people are electing to have one embryo transferred to minimize their risk of
a twin pregnancy. One in three of these patients get pregnant from these cycles
and when subsequent frozen cycles are accounted for, the take home baby rate reaches
Frozen Embryo Transfers
Recent advances in embryo freezing have enabled a substantial improvement in success
rates. This includes improved embryo survival at thawing and an increase in the
clinical pregnancy rate. These enhancements have allowed us to transfer single thawed
embryos without compromising the pregnancy rates.
