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.

Helping our patients realise their dream of having a baby is our guiding mission. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously.

    That’s why we believe in complete transparency when it comes to publishing our pregnancy success rates - detailed below. To make this as simple as possible, we have separated our data into:

    • patients having a fresh embryo transfer
    • patients having a frozen embryo transfer
    • patients that have undergone Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing (PGT)

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

    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.

    Simply put? Your chance of success is very specific to your clinical situation.

    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 work tirelessly to give you the very best chance of successfully conceiving, but unfortunately there are no guarantees when it comes to fertility treatment.

    The clinical pregnancy rates we include below are per the Australian and New Zealand Assisted Reproductive Database (ANZARD) definition.

    According to ANZARD, 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 (with our without a fetal heart);
    3. examination of products of conception reveal chorionic villi; or
    4. an ectopic pregnancy has been diagnosed by laparoscope or by ultrasound.

    Live Birth Definition:

    According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) definition, a live birth is defined as the complete expulsion or extraction from its mother of a product of conception irrespective of the duration of the pregnancy, after such separation, breathes or shows any other evidence of life, such as beating of the heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord or definite movement of the voluntary muscles, whether or not the umbilical cord has been cut or the placenta is attached; each product of such a birth is considered liveborn.
