Success rate


Many factors need to be taken into account in estimating the chance of success with fertility treatments.

The woman’s age is the most important factor influencing a couple’s chance of conception.

Most fertility treatments now offer a chance of success equivalent to that of a normal couple.

The question frequently asked by couple counseling for fertility, will we get a baby.

All couple with fertility problems want to know about their chance of success with a treatment.

 When we talk about success rate we have to understand that there is the chemical pregnancy and the clinical pregnancy and live birth rate (This rate does not include miscarriage or stillbirth).

The chance of success of a treatment also depends on the time spend to achieve a pregnancy. How many cycles of treatments are undertaken?


The experience and skill of the doctor will influence the success rate.


A couple’s chance of success will depend on their unique situation. Too many factors to consider when doctor evaluate the success rate of the couple: age, the cause of fertility (one cause or more), how carefully they have been investigated, for how many year they have been trying for a pregnancy, lifestyle factors such as smoking and stress.

When it comes to IVF treatment, the result will depend also of the success rate of the IVF center.  There can be variations between different centers. Most IVF centers in Lebanon are very well equipped and has very good embryologist, so a very good success rate.

The success rate of IVF in Lebanon like in other country depends on the age of the woman undergoing treatment as well as the cause of the infertility (if it's known). Younger women are more likely to have healthier eggs, which increases the chances of success.

The percentage of IVF treatments that resulted in a live birth (the success rate) 42% for women under 35. Success rates for older patients were also lower and decrease with age, with 37-year-olds at 27.4%.
