Why do success rates vary from clinic to clinic?
It’s extremely difficult to compare clinic success rates fairly. This is because success rates depend on the patients being treated and the reason for their infertility.
Some clinics specialise in treating people with certain types of infertility or older women who are less likely to be successful. Taking on these trickier cases will affect their success rates. Their outcomes may not reflect the national average.
That’s why we recommend you consider all the issues that matter to you – from opening hours and location, to whether counselling is provided – when choosing a clinic and not rely solely on the success data.
