2010 Preliminary Assisted Reproductive Technology Success Rates
The data come from the 443 fertility clinics reporting in 2010 that provided and verified data on the outcomes of all ART cycles started at their clinics. The 154,417* ART cycles performed at these reporting clinics in 2010 resulted in 47,102 live births (deliveries of one or more living infants) and 61,561 infant. Data provided by U.S. fertility clinics that use ART to treat infertility is a rich source of information about the factors that contribute to a successful ART treatment—the delivery of a live-born infant.
*Excludes banking cycles and cycles in which a new treatment procedure was being evaluated.

Assisted Reproductive Technology and Trends in Low Birthweight—Massachusetts, 1997–2004. Low birthweight (LBW) (<2,500 g) is an important cause of infant morbidity and mortality. Source: MMWR 2009;58(03):49–52.
Increasing infant mortality among very low birthweight infants—Delaware, 1994–2000. To understand the cause of this increase, the Delaware Division of Public Health and CDC analyzed Delaware birth and death data. Source: MMWR 2003;52:862–866.
Use of Assisted Reproductive Technology—United States, 1996 and 1998. Since 1983, when the first infant was conceived from in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the United States, the use of IVF and related procedures (assisted reproductive technology) has increased substantially.

Contribution of Assisted Reproductive Technology and Ovulation-Inducing Drugs to Triplet and Higher-Order Multiple Births—United States, 1980–1997 Pregnancies associated with assisted reproductive technology (ART) and drugs that induce ovulation are more likely to result in multiple births than spontaneously conceived pregnancies in the United States.

PublicationsA Public Health Focus on Infertility Prevention, Detection, and Management
This new report from the CDC examines the issue of infertility in the United States. The article, published in Fertility and Sterility, presents information on the efforts of a CDC-wide working group that found considerable gaps and opportunities in surveillance, research, communication, and policy development on infertility.

National Birth Defects Prevention Study Shows Assisted Reproductive Technology is Associated with an Increased Risk of Certain Birth Defects Infants conceived with Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) are two to four times more likely to have certain types of birth defects than children conceived naturally, according to a study by the CDC released in the journal Human Reproduction.
