More Babies Being Born from IVF

Posted on March 25, 2015 by Inception Fertility

The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) recently reported an increase in the numbers of babies born with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF). In 2013, nearly 175,000 cycles resulted in the birth of 63,000 babies. This was an increase of nearly 2,000 over 2012. Complete data are not yet available for 2014.

Perhaps most promising of all is this trend: More women also chose to transfer a single embryo, which did not negatively affect pregnancy rates. The age group with the greatest increase in elective single embryo transfer (eSET) was women younger than 35. In this age group, eSET increased from 15 percent in 2012 to 22.5 percent in 2013.
