Our Success Rates

We are proud of our success rates at the UCSF Center for Reproductive Health. They are the culmination of an integrated process of caring for our patients and supporting them with compassion, expertise and innovation.

We aim to give patients the best estimate of their predicted success – yet leave the final decision as to whether to attempt IVF to the individual patient. We believe this patient autonomy supersedes any individual clinic goal to optimize success rates by limiting access.

The strongest predictor of success is a woman's age with the number of pregnancies decreasing across all age groups. As women get older, the health of any individual egg declines and the number of eggs available declines – both contribute to the decreases in success rates and emphasize the importance of stimulation response.  Additionally, as women get older, the chance for pregnancy loss (miscarriage) increases such that the live birth/cycle will decline even further.
