In-vitro fertilisation (IVF/ICSI)

IVF/ICSI 2018: once more, our results outperform the national average

  • Positive pregnancy test after embryo transfer
  • Living foetus week 8

Danish Fertility Center's results for 2018 once more surpass the Danish National IVF results. Our ongoing pregnancy rate per embryo transfer was 44,7% for women up to 35 years, compared to 36,2% for all Danish clinics (35 years included). 

For age 35-39 years, we had 32,5% with a living foetus per transfer, for the whole country, the number was 27,0% (women 36-39 years).

For age 40-43 years, we had 16,7% living foetus per transfer, compared to 16,9% as the national average for age 40-42 years. The age intervals differ a little bit.(, annual reports).


Frozen embryo transfer

For the interval 2016-2018, 33,0% of women below 40 years had a living foetus after transfer of a froaen/thawn embryo, whereas the number was 20,8% for women 40-43 years.

Oocyte donation

From 2016-2018, 56,6% of transfers resulted in a positive pregnancy test, and 40.6% had an ongoing pregnancy. The national average was 30.9%.

We are best in choosing the right embryo

Our success is especially due to the fact, that we have performed more blastocyst transfers in women with several good quality embryos on day 2. In 2018 we performed single embryo transfer (SET) in 96% of all transfers in women under 40 years, and in 58% of transfers in women 40-45 years. For women under 40 years, 1% had a twin pregnancy, over 40 years 4.0% expected twins. Overall, the twin rate was 2%.

In 2018, we had to transfer 2,7 embryos to have an ongoing pregnancy for women below 40 years.

We were able to preserve the high pregnancy rate for 2018, although we transfer fewer embryos than other private clinics do. We think the improvement is due to the fact that we culture all embryos in the embryoscope, which helps us choosing the right embryo for transfer.
