CDC 2003 Report Highlights 1

Here are some highlights from the recent CDC report on fertility clinics. The report goes back to 2003 because they have to wait one year until the baby is born and then another year to collect the data

Do ART success rates differ among women of different ages?

Age <23,>45, Pregnancy rate 3.3%, Live birth rate 1.9%, Singleton live birth rate 1.4%

Please keep in mind that these numbers refer to infertile women trying to conceive so although you cannot extrapolate the rates to the normal population you can probably extrapolate the attrition effect due to age
