IVF Success Rates
We are proud of the Reproductive Science Center of the San Francisco Bay Area’s record of success. RSC is fortunate to have experienced doctors whose pioneering efforts in IVF have helped create many families since we were founded in 1983. In addition, our doctors and IVF laboratory staff are constantly improving their skills and our state-of-the-art facilities to increase your likelihood of becoming a parent through in vitro fertilization or other infertility treatments.
As we continue to improve our pregnancy rates at RSC, we remain steadfast in promoting single embryo transfers (eSET) to reduce multiple pregnancies.
Our IVF success rates are very competitive nationally, and our donor egg and frozen embryo cycles are well above national average in live births per transfer. These numbers represent our high standard of treatment excellence, which gives you a better chance of successfully conceiving and taking home a baby. These statistics only apply to retrievals and transfers performed by RSC physicians. Please contact your infertility practice to discuss their success rates.
Please read Making Sense of ART Statistics to help you understand the meaning of these statistics.
