In 1992 the U.S. government passed legislation requiring infertility treatment centers to report results to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You can view the latest reported statistics for Brigham and Women’s Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery at the Society for Reproductive Technology (SART).
These statistics can seem overwhelming or confusing and, cannot tell the whole story. Many prospective patients will focus on the percentage of cycles resulting in pregnancy and cycles resulting in live births. Please be cautioned that outcomes can vary greatly depending upon a number of factors such as your particular fertility problem, age and overall general health. At all times our team is committed to giving you realistic expectations based upon your particular situation and specific treatment plan.
While the number of live births is an important statistic it is also important to consider the number of pregnancies that result in triplets or more. These pregnancies can present significant risk to the mother and the developing babies. At the Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery we strive to maximize pregnancy rates while minimizing the incidence of high order (multiple) pregnancies.
