IVF for 7K Leads the Success Rates

Choosing the Right Fertility Clinic

There are many factors that should go into making the choice for a fertility clinic. But, choosing a clinic just because the doctor has been on TV or ”world Famous” is not one of them. Quite frankly it is ludicrous. Why wouldn’t you go to the clinic with the highest success rates reported by the CDC? We would not recommend letting cost be your guide, although for many it might have to be be the deciding factor. Imagine if the program with the highest Live Birth Rate was also the least expensive. Well, you don’t need to imagine because it is true. Just click here.

Assuming that you need advanced reproductive technology, IVF something similar, you should be very, very thoughtful in your decision. Some important considerations might be:

• Proximity to a clinic – if there is only one clinic in your area and travel is not an option then you are locked in.
• You have been successful in the past with that clinic- it worked so why switch?
• Friends had a very good experience at a particular clinic-nothing like first hand testimonials.
• Your interview of the clinic went well
• Social Media, the most accurate way to evaluate the potential experience. Clinics can’t just take down reviews.
• Perhaps the most important- you reviewed the clinics success rates published by the CDC and they were acceptable to you.

Why would you ever base your decision on a doctor’s ability to get him/herslf on TV? Isn’t it more important to know the doctor’s success rates? Don’t you think bedside manner is important? What is aid about the doctor on social media? Is he nice to his patients?

Go to and see where the clinic ranks. Go to Facebook or other social media outlets to learn about the doctor’s interactions with patients.IVF is a very expensive dart to throw at a balloon. Nobody can promise you success an if they do then they are being dishonest. You need to pick a clinic that has a high success rate and makes you feel cared for.

At Fertility Partnership we are proud of our success rates and the strong relationships we have with our patients. Visit our Facebook page and see for your self.

      I will let lied to you. IVF at age 47 using your own eggs will be very hard. The oldest woman in history to get pregnant with their own eggs from IVF was 47. Mini IVF is a waste of time at any age. Success rates are much much lower than regular IVF

    I had a vasectomy in 1979 and a reversal that failed in 2015. Sperm was retrieved and frozen at that time. My wife is 38 and has good and fertile eggs. What would a IVF with ICSI cost?
