CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

He [Dr. Wang] is very smart and experienced with DOR and managing cycles with women over 40 years. He would write back to emails with detailed answers to questions right away. He also considers what your are comfortable with such as low or high doses of meds, but educates you to make the best decisions in all aspects of the process such as PGS testing, day 3 or day 5 embryos, pros and cons of low or high doses of meds.
The lab and embryologist [at Sher] is very good. They aren't cheap so if you don't have coverage it can add up...She [the nurse] was caring, supportive and down to earth just like Dr Wang. She emailed back quickly and called when she needed to...I ended up with one frozen embryo out of 4 eggs. They will not transfer or freeze embryos that are lagging behind in cell numbers of where the embryo should be. They will want to grow the embryo out to blast to see if it makes it.

Because of my endometriosis we never got any further than medications/injections. They would cause a flare up and we would have to stop the cycle. She [Dr. Adelina Emmi] was very strict about not pushing my body any further than she thought was safe. We appreciated this greatly!... Dr. Emmi was always thorough and to the point. She answered any questions we had and never made us feel uncomfortable asking. I really struggled with having to stop seeing her so that I could seek endometriosis treatment to through a different specialist. The only down side to seeing Dr Emmi was the 2 hour drive to her office.
[Sher-IL is] Busy!! They seemed to be a bit understaffed for nurses. However, every nurse was compassionate and caring!....The entire office was pleasant to us each time we were there. We never had to reintroduce ourselves..... Because of my endometriosis we never got any further than medications/injections. They would cause a flare up and we would have to stop the cycle.

The office [Sher] isn't very welcoming but, Dr. Emma has been very honest and upfront. Not the warmest bed side manner but, was straightforward with us. Even though we have been disappointed with our results, it's nothing Dr. Emma has control over...She isn't the warmest doctor but, is more straight forward than any other doctor we have seen in the past....i felt like she wanted us to succeed and not just waste a cycle and have no results.
