New online tool to help navigate IVF

22 February 2021

The Australian Government has the launched the YourIVFSuccess website.

The YourIVFSuccess website will help people estimate their chances of success through In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). It allows people to access information based on real world statistical information collected from patients who have undergone IVF treatment.

The website also includes an IVF Success Estimator so those thinking about starting or continuing IVF can make informed decisions.

RANZCOG President Dr Vijay Roach said: “For many people, infertility is a difficult and confronting experience. As well as expert and compassionate care, RANZCOG supports the need for clear and transparent facts and statistics so that patients can make informed decisions.”

Chair of RANZCOG’s Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (CREI) Subspecialty Committee, Professor Roger Hart said: “This initiative represents a substantial amount of work undertaken towards providing patients with information about their chances of conceiving in an IVF cycle, and is a very positive step.

“With time the website may evolve, and will be updated, with the inclusion of more data. Obviously it only includes IVF treatment, and hence excludes all treatment involving less intervention, which may be appropriate for many patients, but the website will provide patients their realistic chances should they proceed with IVF. The College is grateful to those College members that assisted with its development.”
