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:

While all of these facts and figures are a cause for optimism, they can only provide a partial view – one that doesn’t fully reflect your personal circumstances. That’s why we’d really prefer to get to know you before giving you an idea about your own chances of success.  To set up an initial consultation, just get in touch.

The HFEA publish success rates for all clinics and compare these results to the national averages.  To view the HFEA data for our clinics please use the folowing links; for our Cambridge clinic and for our clinic at Colchester.  It is too early for the HFEA to publish results for our Norwich clinic.

It is important that you understand that success rates have limitations as the basis for comparison or personal choice.  If you have any questions about the success rates we have provided, please contact one of the clinics and we will be happy to answer any questions.  Alternatively, you can read the HFEA’s advice on success rates
