National IVF summary statistics
The national statistics provide an indication, based on the previous experiences of other people
treated in the UK, of your overall chances of success when going through treatments. It is
important to keep in mind the fact that each person is different – your chances of success
depend upon a great many factors and you may become pregnant with more or less treatment
cycles than the national averages.
  These charts show: the national averages for successful IVF treatment across different age
groups; the different types of infertility diagnosed by clinics; the types of IVF procedures
used; and the likelihood of multiple births for people having IVF treatment. The data on which
these charts are based relates to treatments which took place between 1 April 2002 and 31
March 2003.
