The South West Centre for Reproductive Medicine (SWCRM) results mostly match or exceed the normal chances of achieving pregnancy and birth in fertile couples. For young fertile couples trying naturally, the normal chance of pregnancy per menstrual cycle is approximately one in six. Different methods offer varying degrees of success, depending on the cause and degree of the infertility problem(s) in each couple. We will give you up-to-date detailed results as they apply to you and your individual circumstances, to help you make choices.
The table below shows the latest South West Centre for Reproductive Medicine clinical pregnancy rates for IVF and ICSI cycles for patients using their own eggs in a "fresh" cycle. We have presented our results as per the HFEA website format in order that you may directly compare the success rates we obtain here at SWCRM with other units. Where pregnancies are reported, these have been confirmed by the presence of a foetal heartbeat by ultrasound scan.
The following first table shows how many women had a live birth out of all the women who began a treatment cycle during the year 2014 - 2015. A treatment cycle starts when a woman begins taking fertility drugs to stimulate her egg production. The second shows most recent clinical pregnancy rates (2015 – 2016) per treatment cycle started.
