Volumes and Outcomes
We are honored when patients entrust us with their fertility care, earning their confidence through the quality of our program and our proven success in building families.
Growing Patient Volumes
Our patient volumes continue to increase 10 to 15% each year, outpacing the growth rate of larger fertility clinics throughout the Houston area.
Since April 2014 when the Family Fertility Center opened, we have had over 1,000 cycles with a 61.3% chemical pregnancy rate and a 47.2% clinical pregnancy rate across all ages, even with some of the most difficult cases.
Our Success Rates
Success rates are one of many factors to consider when selecting a fertility center that’s right for your unique needs.
To help you make the most informed decision, we invite you to learn more about the Family Fertility Center’s success rates, our treatment options, and the services available to help you build your family.
We also report our outcomes to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to help provide patients national resources on success rates using in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Interpreting the Data – and Making the Right Choice
When comparing fertility clinics, keep in mind many factors can influence the numbers reported, including the medical diagnosis and the age of patients treated, the approach to treatment, and reporting practices, which vary.
At the Family Fertility Center, we are known for treating complex and challenging cases, which can impact success rates. We are dedicated to the care of these patients and are tenacious in our efforts to help build their families.
Fertility data can be overwhelming, in part because more patients are choosing treatment options such as embryo cryopreservation and genetic testing that delay pregnancy, making the reporting process more complex.
Our transparency for reporting data reflects the efforts of two of our physicians who both have been president of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) which oversees assisted reproductive technology in the U.S.
The best way to understand the success rates of a fertility center – and determine if it’s the right choice for you – is to visit the clinic and consult with a physician about your personal situation. We welcome an opportunity to meet with you <link to new consultation and evaluation page> and answer any questions you may have about the Family Fertility Center, our treatment options and outcomes.
Other Important Factors to Consider
In addition to success rates, we encourage you to consider the following before entrusting a fertility clinic with your care:
- How long has the program been established?
- Is the program a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART)?
- Are the physicians board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology?
- Is the program affiliated with a hospital?
- What services are offered? Are there options for less expensive, less invasive approaches before turning to IVF?
- Does the program offer treatment for male factor infertility?
- Do they have an Embryoscope to increase the probability of a viable pregnancy?
- How many embryos are transferred each cycle? How does this impact the chances of a having twins, triplets or a higher multiple pregnancy?
- What does treatment cost? How many cycles are included in the cost?
- Does the clinic have a donor sperm/donor egg program?
- Does the clinic offer psychological counseling?
