How to Choose an IVF Clinic

Choosing an IVF clinic can be a difficult decision and myclients often tell me they feel like just another number to the clinic, with a one size fits all treatment approach. Finding the right clinic for you can make a difference in the outcome of your treatment. Also, depending on your age and own fertility needs, the right clinic can vary.  

I’m often asked in our fertility acupuncture clinic – What makes a good IVF clinic? This is because the only things that clients have to go on are the clinics online stats and live birth rates. 

However, stats can often be misleading as to have a live birth you need to have had a transfer. Often a clinic will not include in these statistics any data on how many patients did not get to the embryo transfer stage. This is a very important static which will help you get an idea of the overall performance of the clinic. Look for a clinic that is open and transparent with their statics when you ask. 

Having frequent scans and your hormone levels measured during treatment means clinics can make important changes during your treatment where needed.  The closer your clinic monitor you throughout your cycle the better, this way any changes in dosage can be done. 

Questions to ask your chose IVF clinic

How many patients come for treatment but don’t get to embryo transfer stage?

How often with you scan me? 

Will you take my hormone levels throughout my cycle?

Will you check my progesterone levels before I have mytransfer?

Do you add medication into my cycle to keep me in line with the clinic opening times etc or will you see me for scans and treatment that are dictated by how I am responding to treatment?
