CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

She [Dr. Alons] was straight and to the point. She answered all of my questions but, did little to alleviate concerns. It seemed as though she was rushed, trying to get to her next appointment instead of focusing on myself and my concerns. I felt very defeated leaving her office...No drugs recommended. She stated I was overweight many times, but testing came back normal. She appeared to be not concerned with my struggle...The only information I was given was about my weight. She gave no further information as to what was wrong, simply made me feel as though I was to blame.
We spent a considerable amount for 2 rounds of sperm testing, blood work and intrauterine ultrasounds [at Cedar Rapids OBGYN Specialists]. We were informed we had a 7%chance of conceiving. IUI was stated to cost about $400 and would only increase our chances by 2%. IVF was stated to cost about $3000 and only had a 22% success rate...The clinic is well managed and clean. It is comfortable and they are professional at handling concerns before appointments to know what to expect and how to change things and they are efficient. They provide many of the necessary tools for you to ensure you are comfortable. They even contact you before appointments to discuss billing.
