IVF Results 2017

The best private IVF clinic

In 2015 we celebrated our ranking as the best private IVF clinic in the country based on the annual report of Dansk Fertilitetsselskab (DFS).

Unfortunately, DFS have decided that from 2016 and onwards they’ll no longer publish an annual report. This means that we can’t compare our results with the performance of the remaining clinics in Denmark. However, one thing is certain; our IVF results in 2017 are even better that they were in 2015.

IVF results 2017 pregnancy rate

The table above shows the pregnancy rate per IVF/ICSI treatment started. The table includes all IVF and ICSI treatments, including egg transfers that had to be cancelled because there were no blastocysts on day 5-6.

The dark grey column in the table shows the chance of a positive pregnancy test when an IVF or ICSI treatment is started, confirmed by a blood test about 10 days after transfer.

The light grey column indicates the chance that a scan shows a live embryo about 5 weeks after transfer of 1 (or 2) fertilised eggs to the womb.

The reason why the two columns are not identical is that some pregnancies are what is technically called biochemical, meaning that the embryo stops developing. The risk that a pregnancy is biochemical increases with age, and it is also biological; it’s the main reason why getting pregnant gets harder the older the woman is.

ivf results 2017 pregnancy rate when fertilised egg transferred

The table above shows the pregnancy rate when fertilised eggs have been transferred to the womb.

The dark grey column shows the chance of a positive pregnancy test when 1 (or 2) fertilised eggs have transferred to the womb in connection with IVF or ICSI treatment, confirmed by a blood test about 10 days after transfer.

The light grey column indicates the chance that a scan shows a live embryo about 5 weeks after transfer of 1 (or 2) fertilised eggs to the womb.

As explained above, the two columns are not identical because some pregnancies are biochemical, which means that the embryo stops developing.

ivf results 2017 pregnancy rate defrosted vs fresh

The table above shows our pregnancy rate for IVF and ICSI treatment using frozen/thawed blastocysts (fertilised eggs). 

If several good blastocysts are found in a treatment, 1 (or 2) 2 “fresh” fertilised eggs are transferred. The other good blastocysts are frozen (vitrified) and saved for later use. Per planned treatment, in 94% of the treatments, we have been able to transfer 1 (or 2) blastocysts using frozen blastocysts, which means that the vast majority of blastocysts survive freezing/thawing. 

The dark grey column shows the chance of a positive pregnancy test when the treatment using frozen blastocysts starts, confirmed by a blood test about 10 days after transfer.

The light grey column indicates the chance that a scan shows a live embryo about 5 weeks after transfer of 1 (or 2) fertilised eggs to the womb.
