To find out success rates at IVF clinics use either the CDC or the SART IVF success rate report

US Government's "Centers for Disease Control" (CDC) Report and the "Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology" (SART) Report

  • The SART IVF success rate report for 2016 cycles was released in 2018.
  • The CDC IVF success rate report for 2016 cycles was released in 2018.
  • Links to both of these reports are below.

IVF success rate statistics for all reputable clinics are available on the web from both the Centers for Disease Control and from SART.

  • The Centers for Disease Control is a US Government agency. It publishes IVF success rates annually for all reputable fertility clinics.
  • The CDC IVF report includes data on age, specific fertility causes, number of embryos transferred, single and multiple births, etc.
  • The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) also publishes annual reports for IVF and egg donation statistics

The best way to increase the success of IVF is by having procedures done at a high quality program.

  • Both the SART and CDC websites now show individual IVF clinic success rates for IVF and donor egg treatments
  • US clinics have IVF live birth rates ranging from 10% to over 60% - for women under age 35
  • Go to these sites and check success rates for any clinic that you are considering
  • Success rates vary significantly
  • Therefore, it is smart to research success rates before choosing a clinic for fertility treatment

Many fertility clinics have websites but don't post IVF live birth success rates on their sites.

Why not? Do they think patients don't want to know their success rates?

Below on this page is a portion of our SART report for 2016 (our own clinic's data)
See our complete 2015 and 2016 SART Reports on the SART website

  • Red arrow - IVF clinic name
  • Between the red and the green bars are live birth success rates using own eggs
  • Green arrow - columns with outcome results for different female age groups
  • Blue arrow - Number of IVF "cycles" started (all women that started shots to do in vitro)
  • Pink arrow - percent of cycles started that led to a baby's birth (using fresh eggs)
  • Orange arrow - percent of subsequent frozen embryo transfers (after a first transfer was done) that led to a baby's birth
  • Below the orange bar is data for using fresh donor eggs
  • Black arrow - percent of embryo transfers using fresh embryos from fresh donor eggs that led to a baby's birth
  • Below the blue bar is data for using frozen donor eggs
  • Purple arrow - percent of embryo transfers using fresh embryos from frozen donor eggs that led to a baby's birth
IVF success rates Chicago 2016

Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology released the 2016 IVF data in 2018.
To go to the SART site to check success rates:

  • On their site, go to "IVF Success Rate Reports", click on the state you want, then the clinic, then "ART Data Report"
  • A sample of parts of our 2016 SART Report is shown above on this page (our clinic)
  • Go to the SART site to check 2016 success rates (or earlier)
  • Note: Every fertility clinic does not report to SART.

To go to the CDC site to check success rates:

  • The CDC released its preliminary 2016 IVF report in 2018
  • Individual IVF center's results can be viewed online
  • The report is also available for download from the CDC as an Excel spreadsheet
  • Go to the CDC site to check any clinic's success rates for 2016 (or earlier)
  • On the CDC site, select a state, a clinic, and a year to see that clinic's in vitro success report. Alternatively, download the report spreadsheet at the CDC site and use that.

Below is the CDC's national summary table for 2015

Each fertility clinic has a similar page in this report with their IVF and donor egg success rates

  • Between the orange and the red bars are outcome data for women using their own eggs (non-donor) and fresh embryos
  • Columns at the top show female age groups. For example, "less than 35", 35-37, etc.
  • Red arrow points to the % of embryos transferred that implanted and were later seen on pregnancy ultrasound
  • Blue arrow points to live birth rate "per cycle" (starting ovarian stimulating drugs for IVF is a "cycle")
  • Green arrow points to the live birth rate "per transfer" procedure using fresh embryos
  • There are more "cycles" than "transfers" because some cycles are canceled for poor response to drugs and others don't have a fresh embryo transfer procedure for various reasons
  • Between the red and green bars are success rate data using frozen embryos and a woman's own eggs (non-donor)
  • Pink arrow points to the live birth rate per transfer using frozen-thawed embryos and "own eggs"
  • Below the green line are success rates using donor eggs
  • Orange arrow points to the live birth rate per transfer using fresh donor eggs (this, and the implantation rate using donor eggs are the most accurate and reliable measures of the quality of an IVF clinic)
  • Purple arrow points to the live birth rate per transfer using frozen embryos from donor eggs
2015 CDC national IVF report table

We are proud that our success rates have consistently been one of the highest in the Midwest as well as in the entire country.

  • But don't take our word for it. Use the reports to check and compare in vitro statistics.

We are not bragging if we back it up!

A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic

I am so grateful for Advanced Fertility Center. I just had my son Leland. I want to thank Dr. Catenacci and all of the nurses that helped us. Especially Ashley in the Crystal Lake office. You made this process easier by being supportive and positive. Thank you very much!


Dr. Sherban and his staff are the most amazing, compassionate, and supportive people. After almost 5 years of trying to conceive, going through numerous tests and meeting with another clinic closer to home, who told me my chances even with IVF were still very low, a good friend recommended advanced fertility center of Chicago. Best decision we ever made! We now have 2 amazing children who are now 5 and 3 years old! I cannot stress enough how amazing this staff is, they make you feel like family!


Our experience was amazing with Dr. Cantanucci and all of the nurses (especially Ashley). After ttc for 4 years and at 41 years of age, we became pregnant after 1 round of IVF, and had our beautiful boy this past October. Can't thank them enough!


2/7/15 our son was born all thanks to the assistance of Dr. Sherbahn and his staff. Everyone was so helpful and here for all our questions, worries, etc. They want this for you just as much as you want this for you! Handled with pure professionalism and care from the very start! Thank you advanced fertility!
