Our goal every day is to help our families achieve their dreams of having a baby. To do that, we strive to be on the cutting edge of medical breakthroughs in Reproductive Medicine. With the implementation of interactive patient education, new stimulation protocols, advanced culture conditions and an innovative approach to lab practices, pregnancy rates have soared across all age groups.
We're thrilled that we've been able to attain exceptional success rates for our IVF patients. The definition of success for the clinical pregnancy rate is defined as the presence of a fetal heart beat by ultrasound usually performed at 6 to 7 weeks of pregnancy. This quoted rate is usually higher than the live birth rate due to the possibilities of miscarriages and pregnancy losses. The graph below depicts the 2013 Clinical Pregnancy Rates in Fresh Non-Donor IVF cycles as the live birth rate for 2013 has not been finalized.
Piedmont Reproductive Endocrinology Group (PREG) is proud to be members of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). As members of SART, we are required to report our IVF pregnancy success rates annually to the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and have done so since the inception of our IVF program in 2004. Please visit their website to view this data. It is important to note that this published data lags by about 2 to 3 years since live birth rates are reported and therefore programs have to wait for all live births from their patients to be recorded for that given year.
