A couples’ ability to conceive is affected by many factors – age, weight, male sperm count, reproductive history (the number of pregnancies, miscarriages, etc) and clinical diagnoses, are all factors that play a role in fertility and the success of fertility treatment. When it comes to choosing the right treatment for you, your fertility doctor is the ultimate source to counsel on the medical option most suitable for you to achieve success.
Below Aevitas success rates have been compared to benchmark statistics where possible, through the use of the ‘South African Registry for Assisted Reproductive Technology’ (SARA) 2014 report. The annual data of fifteen of South Africa’s top registered fertility clinics were used to compile the data for SARA.
Based on the statistics our Aevitas team is proud of our success rates!
Throughout 2013 – 2016 Aevitas Fertility Clinic has performed between 800 and 900 IVF cycles per year. ICSI has the same results as IVF, and therefore the pregnancy rate is often grouped together with that of IVF.
Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Patients who undergo IVF treatment usually choose to freeze (cryopreserve) an additional embryo for another IVF attempt, should their first cycle be unsuccessful, or should they continue to preserve it to expand their family at a later stage. This process is called frozen embryo transfer (FET).
Donor Egg Programme
Donor eggs are more likely used in IVF cycles if a female is older than 38, as the quality of eggs, and therefore fertility drops steeply in the late thirties/early forties.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is most commonly known as artificial insemination (AI). The placement of sperm into a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilisation (IUI) is performed to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes, to increase the chance of fertilisation. It is often used in low sperm count or decreased sperm mobility.
Ovulation induction, indicated for women who do not ovulate on their own regularly, could be due to various reasons and is addressed using fertility drugs.
Endoscopic Surgery and Advanced Endoscopy
Endoscopic surgery uses a scope through a small incision or natural body opening to diagnose and treat disease, such as endometriosis or the reversal of sterilisation (reanastomosis).
