When considering a fertility clinic for their care, many patients look at pregnancy rates and often misunderstand them for delivery or live birth rates. Since 1992, reproductive specialists in the US are required by law to report the success rates including delivery rates as well as other outcomes data to the CDC. This data is also published by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies.
Not all practices and fertility treatments provide the same results. Doing a little research can have a big impact on your care and chance for success. Especially considering IVF care, patients should ask the following questions on their initial consultation:
Has the center consistently reported to the CDC and SART with delivery rates at or above the national average?
Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS) for embryonic testing?
Does the center routinely perform tophectoderm embryo biopsy when genetic screening is indicated?
Does the center account for endometrial synchronization during time of embryo transfer?
Does the center limit the number of embryos transferred to one or two in all patients at all times?
Are their costs in line with their success rates? Are their fees excessive or discounted too heavily?
SUCCESS IS MORE THAN JUST A NUMBER
For many years, our network of RMA clinics have achieved unparalleled success rates in the US due to medical and technological advancements in the field of reproductive medicine.
At RMA-FL we are firm believers that a patient’s success can be directly attributed to the fertility clinic that they choose. Since 1999, the RMA network has been pioneering processes like comprehensive chromosome screening (SelectCCS), extended embryo culture, blastocyst embryonic biopsy, and endometrial synchrony just to name a few. It’s this type of dedication that has resulted in high pregnancy success rates year-after-year for RMANJ and our goal at RMA-FL is to continue delivering the same patient-focused care with similar outcomes.
