COVID-19 Advice for Patients

At Monash IVF we are incredibly proud of our pregnancy success rates.

It’s important to us that you understand what our success rates are before deciding on a fertility provider.

To make this as easy as possible, we have separated our data into patients having a fresh embryo transfer, patients having a frozen embryo transfer and those that have undergone Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT).

Although clinical pregnancy is important, we know live birth rate is the most meaningful outcome for our patients so we always include this in our graphs.

It is important to remember that many factors can contribute to the likelihood of achieving a pregnancy or a live birth such as the cause of infertility, lifestyle (such as weight and smoking) and age. Your chance of success is very specific to your clinical situation.

It is also important to note that unfortunately not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze.

Clinical pregnancy rate is per the Australian and New Zealand Assisted Reproductive Database (ANZARD) definition. A clinical pregnancy must fulfil one of the following criteria:

    1. known to be ongoing at 20 weeks;
    2. evidence by ultrasound of an intrauterine sac and/or fetal heart;
    3. examination of products of conception reveal chorionic villi; or
    4. a definite ectopic pregnancy that has been diagnosed laparoscopically or by ultrasound.

The definition of a live birth is a birth at which a child is born alive.

In addition we wish to confirm that our data is not adjusted for:

  • Patients with varying lengths of infertility and previous cycle numbers
  • Female and male BMI (weight)
  • Ovarian reserve parameters
  • Male age
  • Embryo grade and survival rates
  • Lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking)
  • Medication regime used
