Fertility Success Rates

Pregnancy Success Rates at Bourn Hall Clinic

At Bourn Hall Clinic, we prefer to give figures that apply to you personally, rather than quote averages. That’s because everyone is unique and your individual circumstances will affect your chances of becoming pregnant. This means that we need to meet you and hear about your situation before we offer any advice or assess the likelihood of you fulfilling your dream.

Even so, some patients still ask us for more generalised figures, including the number of treatments we carry out each year and their outcome. You’ll find some of these facts below:
