It’s not a crystal ball. But the SART Patient Predictor provides a useful tool for helping you calculate your chances of conceiving and delivering a child with in vitro fertilization (IVF). The online calculator uses data from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) database. Its calculations are based on nearly 500,000 cycles of therapy to more than 320,000 women throughout the United States since 2006.1,2

How does the SART online calculator work? You answer a few simple questions about your background—such as age, height, and weight—reproductive history, infertility diagnosis, and whether or not you plan to use your own eggs. Based on your answers, the SART Patient Predictor calculates your chances of having a live birth after one, two, or three cycles. The Patient Predictor assumes you have not had prior IVF treatment.

On Thursday, June 18, from 6 to 8 pm, Pacific Fertility (PFC) hosted a free reception celebrating the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community during LGBT Pride Month. The nearly full event was held at PFC’s clinic in San Francisco. Talk show host Michelle Meow joined PFC and Donna Sachet provided entertainment. JJardine Catering and Events provided food.

Offering outreach and providing regular workshops and seminars, PFC has long been a big supporter of the LGBT community, helping many create the families they desire. At the event, PFC extended its hand to the community by making a donation to SF Pride.
