This section includes all the success rates for treatments at Midland Fertility.  These statistics were updated on 24 August 2016.

winner_94904715_MED RTD NEWS FLASH . . . NEWS FLASH . . . It’s official, Midland Fertility has the best success rates for patients ‘across all ages’ in the West Midlands!  See the news release which explains the latest data from the fertility regulator, the HFEA.

Two types of success rates are available in this section:

  • headline success rates – simplified single figures for an ‘at a glance’ understanding of the outcome of some treatments
  • summary results – statistics of the outcomes of key stages of each treatment, including the livebirth rate (LBR) for the cumulative three year tables (May 2012 – April 2015) and the pregnancy rates for treatments carried out from May 2015 – April 2016.  (At the time of publication, no LBR is available for that period as some pregnancies are still on-going.)  10 years of data is supplied for IUI and 17 years for egg freezing, due to the smaller number of treatment cycles

Results for most treatments are given for three age groups:

  • ≤35 – ie women up to and including the age of 35. Natural fertility and the average response to fertility treatment is usually greater in women who are in this age group
  • 36-39 – ie women aged 36 to 39 years old. Natural fertility starts to decline in this age group and the average response to fertility treatment may not be as successful as that for younger women. About 50% of women who have treatment at Midland Fertility are aged 36 years or older
  • ≥40 – ie women aged 40 years and more. On average, natural fertility declines significantly after 40 years and achieving a successful response to fertility treatment and the chance of a healthy pregnancy using a woman’s own eggs is reduced accordingly. Miscarriage rates are much higher in the age group.


Results for IUI treatments are shown in two tables, showing the outcomes of treatments for both partner and donor sperm:

  • annual pregnancy rates for May 2015 – April 2016
  • combined cumulative LBR for May 2005 – April 2015

– more information

Egg freezing

Results of the thaw, fertilisation and transfer of previously frozen eggs are indicated in a single table:

  • cumulative LBR and pregnancy rates for the period January 2000 – April 2016

– more information

All other treatment results

For each treatment, two tables of information show:

  • annual pregnancy rates for May 2015 – April 2016
  • combined cumulative LBR for the three year period May 2012 – April 2015

– more information
