What are the success rates for in vitro fertilization?

ANSWER

Success rates for in vitro fertilization (IVF) depend on a number of factors, including the reason for infertility, where you're having the procedure done, and your age. The CDC compiles national statistics for all assisted reproductive technology procedures performed in the U.S. The most recent report from 2016  for IVF found:

  • Pregnancy was achieved in an average of 27.3% of all cycles (higher or lower depending on the age of the woman).
  • The percentage of cycles that resulted in live births was 22.2% on average (higher or lower depending on the age of the woman).
