Success rates for ITI infertility treatment

This treatment is very similar to IUI but with a slightly higher success rate. However, it causes more discomfort than IUI.

These figures are meant to give you a rough guide to success rates for fertility treatments. Don’t take these as ‘set in stone’ as there are other factors to take into account.

For a start more couples are reporting fertility problems and these have become more complex as well. This means that their treatment will not be as straightforward as they hoped which will impact upon success rates.

So if you see a clinic with lower success rates it may be the case that they are treating couples with complex infertility problems.

Another factor is that clinics with high success rates may only treat younger women (under 35) which will affect their success rates. The success of fertility treatment does depend on age and a younger woman will have a better chance of achieving a pregnancy than an older woman.

So when you are looking at clinics, compare success rates across the different age groups instead of the overall figures.

And also look at success rates compared to the types of treatment offered. For example treatments with fresh and frozen embryos, the woman’s own eggs or donor eggs and the number of treatment cycles.

Also compare figures for single births and multiple births as multiple births carry a greater risk than single births.

Whichever clinic you choose, there is unfortunately, no guarantee that your treatment cycle will be successful as all cycles carry a small risk of failure.

But on a happier note, success rates have been increasing over the years. So keep this in mind when choosing a clinic and go in with a positive outlook.

When you do choose a clinic and undergo the initial tests you may find that your specialist has to confer with another colleague for a second opinion.

This is a normal part of the process and is often undertaken if your fertility problem falls outside his/her area of expertise. He or she will consult with a colleague who best understands your particular problem.

There is also the possibility that there is a difference of opinion between the two or that you and your partner want a second opinion.
