The UC Center for Reproductive Health is part of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), an organization that consists of nearly 400 IVF practices across the United States. SART represents over 95 percent of all IVF programs nationwide and is dedicated to maintaining and improving Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) standards. SART works closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in compliance with the Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certification Act of 1992 to validate pregnancies.
Our Center adheres to all SART standards and guidelines. The table summary below highlights the UC Center for Reproductive Health’s success rates in comparison to national averages. Visit the SART website to view a summary report of IVF results for the UC Center for Reproductive Health. Keep in mind, however, that success rates vary from center to center and cannot be viewed as true comparisons as there are a number of factors that may affect IVF outcomes including:
- Age of the woman
- Uterine factors
- Semen quality
- Number of embryos transferred and cryopreserved
Although the information presented through SART is confirmed to be accurate, these unique patient medical characteristics, personalized treatment approaches and entrance criteria for IVF may vary from program to program.
Here at the UC Center for Reproductive Health, we do not pre-select patients to include or exclude individuals/couples with limiting factors that may impact our success rates.
