San Francisco, CA - April 29, 2016 – The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) recently released fertility clinic data for 2014. Each year, reproductive endocrinologists are required to report in vitro fertilization (IVF) delivery rates to both the CDC and SART, the main organization of professionals dedicated to the practice of assisted reproductive technologies in the United States.

This year, SART’s report includes expanded information in a new format, making it easier to evaluate the full meaning of fertility success rates. For example, it now breaks out success rates into primary, secondary, and total embryo transfer attempts.

Among the 20 busiest fertility clinics in the U.S., in 2014 Pacific Fertility Clinic (PFC) reported very low twin and triplet rates and low pre-term and very pre-term delivery rates, while simultaneously maintaining excellent pregnancy and delivery rates.
