We are very proud to say that we have been helping to create families since 1982 when Flinders Fertility reported the first IVF baby birth in SA.
We continue to provide the highest standard of individualised care to help patients achieve a healthy baby in the shortest possible time.
Many factors can influence the chance of success such as age, Body Mass Index (BMI) and lifestyle, which is why a Flinders Fertility specialist will provide each and every patient with an honest and realistic indication of the likelihood of conceiving per treatment cycle depending upon individual circumstances and the specific treatment recommended.
It is important to note that unfortunately not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze which is why treatment costs should be a major consideration prior to commencing fertility treatment.
Our data includes all fresh stimulated cycles with a single blastocyst/embryo transfer, and we have included all patients irrespective of the number of treatment cycles, BMI, lifestyle, treatment regime, or blastocyst grades. Our data does not include frozen embryo transfers, donor eggs, donor embryos or genetic testing (PGT-A).
Flinders Fertility uses the ANZARD definition of clinical pregnancy, which is a pregnancy in which at least one of the following criteria is met: known to be ongoing at 20 weeks; evidence by ultrasound of an intrauterine sac (with or without a fetal heart); examination of products of conception reveal chorionic villi; an ectopic pregnancy has been diagnosed by laparoscope or by ultrasound.
