Success rates

The results below are based on The Lister Fertility Clinic ethos of not specifically selecting the patients we treat. This can be illustrated by the fact that at The Lister Fertility Clinic from 2014-2019 40% of our cycles are performed on either those who meet the Bologna criteria for “poor responders" or have had multiple previous cycles.

Also the average of patients having IVF in the UK is 35.5 with 65% under 37 (Fertility Trends 2017: HFEA). In contrast at at the Lister the average is 37.5 with 34% under 37.

This ethos and our continued success into 2019 has seen us proudly pass the 18,000 mark for babies born from treatments under our dedicated team.

The HFEA now recommend clinic success rates be predominantly presented as livebirth per embryo transferred (PET) as it promotes embryo transfer practices that minimises the chances of twins, which carry health risks for the babies and the mother. Also it is a fairer assessment of outcome as the unnecessary transfer of multiple embryos against national guideline and despite the risks involved, which does still occur can artificially inflate success rates.

 

Our results can be analysed in more detail and personalized by using our Pregnancy Calculator, based on data collected at The Lister Fertility Clinic over a 5-year period
