Explanation of Figures 27–39. Click on titles or images to go back to Section 2 Part C.

Figure 27 text below

Figure 27 is a pie chart representing types of ART procedures using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos, 2010. Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.

  • IVF without ICSI, 25.9%
  • IVF with ICSI, 74.1%
  • GIFT, <0.1%
  • ZIFT, <0.1%
  • Combination of IVF with or without ICSI and either GIFT or ZIFT, <0.1%

Figure 28 is a bar graph representing percentages of retrievals that resulted in live births among couples with diagnosed male factor infertility who used IVF with ICSI, compared with couples without diagnosed male factor infertility who used IVF without ICSI, by age group, 2010. Note: Cycles using donor sperm and cycles using GIFT or ZIFT are excluded

Figure 30 text below

Figure 30 is a pie chart representing numbers of embryos transferred during ART cycles using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos, 2010. Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.

  • One, 15.4%
  • Two, 52.8%

Figure 31 text below

Figure 31 is a bar graph representing percentages of embryos transferred that resulted in implantation among women using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos, by age group, 2010.

  • Age <35, 36.5%
  • Age 35–37, 26.9%
  • Age 38–40, 17.7%
  • Age 41–42, 9.6%
  • Age 43–44, 4.2%
  • Age >44, 1.7%

Figure 32 is a bar graph representing percentages of transfers that resulted in live births and percentages of multiple-infant live births for ART cycles using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos, by number of embryos transferred, 2010. Note: In rare cases a single embryo may divide and thus produce twins or triplets. For this reason, small percentages of twins and triplets resulted from a single embryo transfer, and a small percentage of triplets resulted when two embryos were transferred. 

  • 1 embryo transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 27.9%. Of these live births, 98.3% were singletons, 1.7% were twins, and 0.1% were triplets or more. Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.
  • 2 embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 43.9%. Of these live births, 64.9% were singletons, 34.2% were twins, and 0.8% were triplets or more. Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.
  • 3 embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 31.7%. Of these live births, 67.1% were singletons, 28.8% were twins, and 4.1% were triplets or more.
  • 4 embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 26.2%. Of these live births, 71.3% were singletons, 25.5% were twins, and 3.2% were triplets or more.
  • 5 or more embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 22.2%. Of these live births, 74.9% were singletons, 22.9% were twins, and 2.2% were triplets or more. 

Figure 33 is a bar graph representing percentages of transfers that resulted in live births and percentages of multiple-infant live births for ART cycles among women who were younger than 35, used fresh nondonor eggs or embryos, and set aside extra embryos for future use, by number of embryos transferred, 2010. Note: In rare cases, a single embryo may divide and thus produce twins or triplets. For this reason, small percentages of twins and triplets resulted from a single embryo transfer, and a small percentage of triplets resulted when two embryos were transferred. 

  • 1 embryo transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 50.9%. Of these live births, 98.0% were singletons and 2.0% were twins, and 0.1% were triplets or more. Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.
  • 2 embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 57.3%. Of these live births, 56.5% were singletons, 42.4% were twins, and 1.1% were triplets or more. 
  • 3 embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 46.5%. Of these live births, 49.4% were singletons, 39.7% were twins, and 10.9% were triplets or more.
  • 4 embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 48.9%. Of these live births, 53.3% were singletons, 40.0% were twins, and 6.7% were triplets or more. 
  • 5 or more embryos transferred: Percentage of transfers that resulted in live births 46.7%. Of these live births, 71.4% were singletons and 28.6% were twins.

Figure 34 is a pie chart representing the day of embryo transfer among ART cycles using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos, 2010. Note: Day of embryo transfer is defined as the number of days following egg retrieval. Cycles using GIFT or ZIFT are excluded. Missing or implausible values for day of embryo transfer (i.e., 0 or >6) are not included.

  • Day 1, 0.1%
  • Day 2, 5.0%
  • Day 3, 52.4%
  • Day 4, 2.4%
  • Day 5, 37.6%
  • Day 6, 2.5%

Figure 35 is a bar graph representing percentages of day 3 and day 5 embryo transfers using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos that resulted in live births, by age group, 2010. Note: Cycles using GIFT or ZIFT are excluded. Embryo transfers performed on days 1, 2, 4, and 6 are not included because each of these accounted for a small proportion of procedures.  

  • Age <35, Day 3, 41.7%, Day 5, 54.2%
  • Age 35–37, Day 3, 33.8%, Day 5, 46.7%

Figure 36 depicts two pie charts representing the numbers of embryos transferred among ART cycles using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos for day 3 and day 5 embryo transfers, 2010. Note: Cycles using GIFT or ZIFT are excluded. Embryo transfers performed on days 1, 2, 4, and 6 are not included because each of these accounted for a small proportion of procedures.  

  • Day 3:
    • 1 embryo transferred, 11.6%
    • 2 embryos transferred, 44.6%
    • 3 embryos transferred, 28.2%
    • 4 or more embryos transferred, 15.6%
  • Day 5:
    • 1 embryo transferred, 18.5%
    • 2 embryos transferred, 66.1%
    • 3 embryos transferred, 12.2%
    • 4 or more embryos transferred, 3.1%
    • Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.

Figure 37 depicts two pie charts, A and B, representing distibution of multiple-infant live births for ART cycles using fresh nondonor eggs or embryos for day 3 and day 5 embryo transfers, 2010. Note: Cycles using GIFT or ZIFT are excluded. Embryo transfers performed on days 1, 2, 4, and 6 are not included because each of these accounted for a small proportion of procedures.
