ART Success Rates

Fertility clinics in the U.S. report and verify data on the assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles started and carried out in their clinics, and the outcomes of these cycles, during each calendar year.  ART includes all fertility treatments in which either eggs or embryos are handled.  The main type of ART is in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF involves extracting a woman’s eggs, fertilizing the eggs in the laboratory, and then transferring the resulting embryos into the woman’s uterus through the cervix.

These ART data are a rich source of information that can give potential ART users an idea of their average chances of success per ART cycle or ART transfer.  Average chances, however, do not necessarily apply to an individual or couple.  ART success rates vary in the context of patient and treatment characteristics, such as age, infertility diagnosis, number of embryos transferred, type of ART procedure, use of techniques such as ICSI, and history of previous births, miscarriages, and ART cycles. People considering ART should consult a physician to discuss their treatment options.

Based on CDC’s 2019 Fertility Clinic Success Rates Report, there were 330,773* ART cycles performed at 448 reporting clinics in the United States during 2019, resulting in 77,998 live births (deliveries of one or more living infants) and 83,946 live born infants. Of the 330,773 ART cycles performed in 2019, 121,086 were egg or embryo banking cycles in which all resulting eggs or embryos were frozen for future use. Although the use of ART is still relatively rare as compared to the potential demand, its use has more than doubled over the past decade. Approximately 2.0% of all infants born in the United States every year are conceived using ART.

*Note:  This number does not include 8 cycles in which a new treatment procedure was being evaluated.

Preliminary 2020 Data

Based on preliminary data, there were 326,468* ART cycles performed at 449 reporting clinics in the United States during 2020, resulting in 75,023 live births (deliveries of one or more living infants) and 79,942 live born infants. Of the 326,468 ART cycles performed in 2020, 123,304 were egg or embryo banking cycles in which all resulting eggs or embryos were frozen for future use. Although the use of ART is still relatively rare as compared to the potential demand, its use has more than doubled over the past decade. Approximately 2.0% of all infants born in the United States every year are conceived using ART. Final data will be made available later this year.

*Note:  This number does not include 7 cycles in which a new treatment procedure was being evaluated.
