Family Fertility Center

Quality and Outcomes

Learn about our success rates

Each year, our volumes (the number of patients we see) continue to increase 10 to 15%, outpacing the growth rate of larger fertility clinics throughout the Houston area. Since April 2014, when the Family Fertility Center opened, we’ve had over 1,000 cycles with a 61.3% chemical pregnancy rate and a 47.2% clinical pregnancy rate across all ages, even with some of the most difficult cases.

Success rates are one of many factors to consider when selecting a fertility center that’s right for your unique needs. Many factors can influence a fertility center’s success rates, including the type of patients treated and the approach to treatment. We’re proud of our success rates, helping patients with even the most complex fertility issues achieve a successful pregnancy.

To help you make the most informed decision, we invite you to learn more about the Family Fertility Center’s success rates, our treatment options and the services available to help you build your family.

Historical information on our success rates is also available on both the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pregnancy Rate per Embryo Transfer

All cycles (fresh and frozen) up to 5/31/18

Highlights include: 

  • Between April 2014 and May 2018, the latest data available, we performed 1,031 IVF cycles involving fresh and frozen embryos.
  • We transferred 555 embryos, both fresh and frozen. The number of transfers we do each year continues to increase, reflecting our growing patient base and the confidence of referring doctors.
  • Those embryo transfers resulted in a 61.3% chemical pregnancy rate (positive urine test) and a 47.2% clinical pregnancy rate (a viable pregnancy confirmed by ultrasound) in a patient base that includes some of the most complex fertility issues.


SART reporting

As a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), an organization dedicated to helping in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients receive the highest quality care, the Family Fertility Center is honored to have our IVF success rates included on the SART website.

To help you make the most informed decision regarding your treatment options, SART publishes IVF success rates for its member clinics, as well as a national summary report.

Understanding the Data

SART also offers guidance on understanding the data, noting it should not be used for comparing clinics, as differences in patient selection and treatment approaches can artificially inflate or lower pregnancy rates relative to another clinic.

SART data doesn’t reflect our most recent outcomes, as the results of some IVF treatments aren’t known until the next reporting year.

Reporting practices vary from clinic to clinic. The Family Fertility Center, for example, reports IVF cycles that were started but cancelled, which can result in lower numbers compared to clinics who don’t include these attempted cycles in their reporting.

Success rates vary based on many factors. The best way to determine if a fertility center is right for your needs is to consult with a doctor about your personal situation.


We’re here for you

IVF data can be complex and overwhelming. Today, advancements such as genetic testing and embryo freezing are delaying treatment outcomes, making it more complicated to report success rates and more difficult to interpret the data.
