Success Rates

Our certified lab is crucial to your success.

The Texas Center for Reproductive Health has the latest state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Our on-site operating suite and reproductive laboratory received the prestigious accreditation by the College of American Pathologists.

Our success rates have consistently been above the national average. But high success rates do not always tell the whole story. We specialize in reproductive medicine and endocrinology so we often see the most complicated cases, including couples who have been advised not to undergo or to cease treatment by other centers.

Our approach to your specific fertility issues is patient focused and science based, so as a patient you can expect:

  • Treatment protocols unique to each couple
  • Access to staff and your physician 7 days a week
  • Answers to any question you may have
  • More than 35 years on the leading edge of fertility and endocrinology research
  • A certified high-tech lab and specially designed surgical suite on-site
  • Board-certified andrologist, embryologist, and cryobiologist
  • Nationally recognized cryobank

Our intensive diagnostics and state of the art treatments are designed to do one thing: deliver the best outcomes for you. And that’s our idea of success. Due to the time required to collect and publish Assisted Reproductive Technology data, the information is several years old and outdated.  The National data for Assisted Reproductive Technology can be found below through the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention).

 

The average couple seeking care at Texas Center for Reproductive Health may not require invitro fertilization embryo transfer to achieve pregnancy and delivery. Often, a diagnosis is made and treatment performed with pregnancy and delivery following:

*Difference between pregnancy rates per egg retrieval vs. per embryo transfer. Not all egg retrievals end up with a fresh embryo transfer. In this case the event will result in decreasing the pregnancy rate calculations because no embryos were replaced in the uterus and no pregnancy will be established. In other words, not all egg retrievals will count towards establishing pregnancy, while all embryo transfer will count towards establishing a pregnancy. In such situations, the pregnancy rate per embryo transfer is a good indicator of how well the IVF/embryo transfer process works. The differences in the pregnancy calculation, when fresh embryo transfer does not occur, will be more significant for clinics with a lower volume of IVF cases as compared to clinics with a larger IVF volume.

Depending on several circumstances, fresh embryos may have to be frozen for a future attempt at embryo transfer (i.e., frozen embryo transfer). Freezing of embryos may happen by design or due to unforeseen circumstances that may happen during the course of IVF procedures prior to the embryo transfer stage. Frequent examples for freezing embryos and no fresh embryo transfer include:

  1. Embryo biopsy for genetic screening
  2. Uterine receptivity issues
  3. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)
  4. Embryo freezing for fertility preservation
