How Are We Doing?
The Hewitt Fertility Centre is the largest facility of its kind in Europe and we’re proud to say that we perform an average of 3,500 treatment cycles a year, for both NHS and private patients. Our success rates are continuing to rise and are consistently amongst the highest in the UK. We’re dedicated to continuing this and providing the best services for you.
Success Rates for IVF and ICSI
Each couple’s chance of pregnancy is different according to their individual circumstances but you may find it useful to review our most recent success rates. The graph below shows our most recent success rates for IVF and ICSI. Since Summer 2013, we’ve provided time-lapse technologies for all patients and this is included routinely in your treatment. We also aim to perform your embryo transfer on day 5, when your embryos reach the blastocyst stage. Over the last 12 months, 80% of our patients had this type of treatment and the clinical pregnancy rates are shown in the graph.
Success Rates for Frozen Embryos
Between February 2019 and February 2020, 87% of our IVF or ICSI patients had a single embryo transferred and 63% of these patients had at least one embryo frozen. You may find it useful to take a look at the chance of clinical pregnancy using frozen embryos in the graph below. Please note that a clinical pregnancy is one where a foetal heart has been detected on a scan (and is not simply a positive pregnancy test).
The HFEA provide information on success rates for all licenced clinics in the UK. To see more of our data, which has been verified by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, please visit the HFEA website. The live birth rate per embryo transferred for the past year (all ages Feb 2019 – Feb 2020) is 27%, the national average is 23%.
It must be noted that success rates are of limited value when comparing centres and choosing where to seek treatment. Please visit the HFEA website and select the ‘Choose a Fertility Clinic’ function for more information.
Finally, we hope the information we’ve provided here is useful to you – and please don’t hesitate to contact us, should you require more detailed information about your individual chances of success at the Hewitt Fertility Centre.
