IVF success rates

At CREATE, we have pioneered Natural and Mild IVF in the UK and are achieving great success rates as a result of this treatment, which we are very proud of. 

Below we have detailed our average success rates dependent on the type of treatment. We understand how important success rates can be when making your decision so it’s vitally important these are as accurate as possible, for this reason we’ve included as much data as we can so you can be confident in our figures. It is always important to ensure you are viewing comparable data when choosing your clinic and to look at cumulative success rates.

For more information about how we have calculated our success rates please see Understanding Success Rates, Our Success Stories and Safer IVF and Healthier Babies.

For information on the latest live birth rates and the factors affecting success rates, please visit the HFEA website.

In this section we cover the following:
Individual success rates
Mild stimulation cycles
Modified Natural IVF cycles
Patients with low ovarian reserve (low AMH)
Frozen Embryo Transfer Cycles (FET)
Leading the UK in Natural IVF 

Your specific IVF success rate

At an initial consultation, one of our fertility experts will be able to discuss the likelihood of success specifically based on your situation, giving you a more accurate assessment of your chances using IVF treatment.

This individual success rate will give an estimation of your chances of success based on your reproductive history, age, egg reserve, previous treatment history and any problems your partner may have.

Through our honest assessment of your potential success rate, we will be able to offer advice and recommendations for IVF and fertility treatment options. Your chances of success, health and safety are our priorities and all aspects will be discussed to allow you to make an informed decision. If you are not suitable for treatment with your own eggs, we can help with donor eggs or help you to move forward whatever the outcome.

Please contact us to arrange an initial consultation or visit one of our free open days to find out more.

 

Mild Stimulation Cycles success rates

Mild Stimulation IVF is tailored to a woman’s natural cycle, using a short 5-9 day course of low dose stimulating drugs in order to achieve a mild response. The focus is on quality of eggs and embryos, not quantity.

There are a host of benefits to Mild IVF, including the following facts:

  • We have consistently achieved excellent results
  • Fewer drugs reduces the costs – we have the lowest cost per baby in London (2011)
  • Fewer side effects due to low drug doses and working with your cycle rather than using downregulation
  • Very safe - no patient has been admitted to hospital with OHSS in the history of CREATE
  • Shorter treatment duration - approximately 2 weeks
  • Healthier babies - babies born from milder treatments have significantly lower rates of premature birth than those born following conventional IVF
  • A high proportion of patients treated had low ovarian reserve or complex issues, and many achieved a successful outcome

Modified Natural IVF cycles success rates

CREATE Fertility has the most experience and expertise in Modified Natural IVF in the UK. We have pioneered new protocols and methods to advance Natural IVF and to increase its success rates.

With Natural IVF and Modified Natural IVF, we are able to help women who have been turned away elsewhere or told that egg donation is their only option. Other benefits include:

  • This treatment is particularly successful for patients with a low ovarian reserve (low AMH and high FSH blood results)
  • Safety - no patient has been admitted to hospital with OHSS in the history of CREATE
  • Healthy babies - babies born have significantly higher birth weights and lower rates of prematurity than babies born from conventional IVF treatment

Patients with low ovarian reserve (low AMH) success rates

At CREATE we will treat any woman under the age of 50 with her own eggs if at all possible. We have a long history of good success rates with patients who have low ovarian reserve.

The treatment typically offered is Natural or Natural Modified IVF, and the success rates in 2011 were as follows:

 AMH level Success rate
AMH <2.84 pmol/l 10.5%
AMH 1.2-2.84 pmol/l 16.35%
AMH 1.0-2.84 pmol/l 14.3%

Frozen Embryo Transfer Cycles (FET) success rates

FET cycles can be used when a patient has embryos frozen from previous cycles of IVF. It involves monitoring the cycle and keeping the womb healthy, ready for the transfer of frozen embryos.

Transferring embryos in an entirely natural cycle means that the uterus is healthy and drug-free, which is favourable for implantation.

At CREATE, we are strong advocates of using frozen embryo transfers to improve the chance of success for our patients.

  • 70% of all patients treated with Natural cycle IVF at CREATE had very low ovarian reserve as shown by low antral follicle count, high FSH and AMH less than 1.4ng/ml (2011)
  • Most of the women treated by Natural cycle IVF at CREATE had failed or cancelled cycles due to a poor response with stimulated IVF previously elsewhere
