More than 50,000 babies were born through treatment at Shady Grove Fertility treatment over the past 25 years.

Shady Grove Fertility, the nation’s largest fertility center has released its 24th Annual IVF Program Report. With outcomes ranking among the highest in the nation, more women and men with infertility are choosing Shady Grove Fertility to help them conceive.

Advances in technique and technology have enabled Shady Grove Fertility physicians to extend the value of each fresh autologous IVF cycles, making IVF even more affordable, efficient, and safer. Among the most notable advances is the ability to safely and effectively freeze embryos for later cycles, which has resulted in increased pregnancy rates and increased use of elective single embryo transfer (eSET).

In 2015, Shady Grove Fertility’s flagship Rockville, MD laboratory alone performed over 4,100 IVF and nearly 2,050 frozen embryo transfers (FET) treatment cycles—the highest number of IVF Program cycles ever performed at the practice in a single year. Shady Grove Fertility’s IVF Program accounts for nearly 40 percent of all treatment cycles performed at the center.

Also highly notable, 44 percent of Shady Grove Fertility patients under 40 years old who were treated at the Rockville IVF laboratory delivered a baby with their first embryo transfer. Treatment protocols vary between patients, but IVF presents many patients with the highest chance of conception. These success rate data also reveal that women in their second cycle had a 40 percent live birth rate per embryo transfer and women in their third cycle had a 45 percent live birth rate per embryo transfer.

“Over the past 25 years, through extensive research and continual improvements to both our treatment and embryology lab protocols, we have been able to help more patients than ever before build their families—something we are extraordinarily proud of,” Michael J. Levy, M.D., Shady Grove Fertility President, Co-Founder, and Director of IVF.
