Success Rates

At Monash IVF, we’re incredibly proud of our pregnancy success rates. We hope our demonstrated success in fertility might lead you to choose us as your trusted fertility provider.

We’re passionate about helping patients achieve their dream of having a family. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. We believe in empowering you with relevant information so you can make the best decisions for your individual circumstances.

That’s why we believe in complete transparency when it comes to publishing our pregnancy success rates.

Understanding success rates

We understand that interpreting success rates and comparing fertility clinics can be challenging as different providers often present their success rates in very different ways. It’s important to us that you’re able to make an informed decision when choosing a fertility provider. You can access independent guidance and information on how to interpret success rates by clicking here.

Continuously improving

We are continually striving to improve our success rates and outcomes for our patients. Read about the initiatives we are working on to improve our success rates here.

Your Journey

Many factors can contribute to your likelihood of achieving a pregnancy or live birth. Maternal age is the single most important consideration, but the cause of infertility and lifestyle factors such as weight and smoking also play a part.

We recommend that everyone should have a consultation with a fertility specialist to understand their individual chances of success. A fertility specialist will review your personal medical history, conduct fertility health assessments, and discuss your individual chances of success with you.

It’s important to realise that not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, an embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze. We do everything we possibly can to give you the very best chance of successfully conceiving, but unfortunately there are no guarantees when it comes to fertility treatment.

Simply put? Your chance of success is very specific to your clinical situation. A fertility specialist can provide you with personalised guidance and fertility advice. You can book a consultation with a fertility specialist here.
