Success Stories

Sharing your Experiences

It can be uplifiting and encouraging to read of some positive experiences of other patient's fertility journeys. 

Here are a few:

"I would like to express my thanks to your team and acknowledge the utmost professionalism and care I received during my fertility treatment at RFC. As a couple undergoing treatment for the first time, our concerns and anxiousness were addressed, from the intial stage of consultation to the final implantation stage.... I am delighted with the service of the NHS and cannot sing your praises highly enough. The treatment and thorough care delivered was exceptional and very comforting at every stage of the journey.... keep up the amazing work!" (May 2016)

"We attended the RFC today.  We are delighted at the level of professionalism.  The doctor was the most helpful and understanding specialist we’ve had the pleasure to see during our fertility treatment journey to date.  We are confident that we are now on the correct road to success.  Nurse on duty also excellent!! Well done!!”

"We just want to thank you, and all of the staff at the RFC, for your care and support during our IVF treatments. We were always given your time to talk in a welcoming and caring environment, which was very much appreciated. Unfortunately we didn't get the outcome we were hoping for, but the professionalism shown by all in the RFC was acknowledged and we thank you for all that you did for us"

"just a note to thank you for your patience, kindness and care on my 'donation journey'. You all do work that must be so tiring and difficult at times and I will forever be thankful for the support you gave me"

"Thank you for making this difficult journey a little easier"

"It didn't work for us but your kindness did. Thanks for accommodating our requests, you are all amazing people"

Success rates

Of course, each individual couple’s chance of achieving a pregnancy is different. Many factors influence the chance of a successful treatment including your age, the type of treatment, and your medical history.

Monitoring and recording success rates

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority regulate centres in the UK that provide fertility treatments. You will find further details of the Regional Fertility Centre in the HFEA Patients Guide to IVF Clinics.

What are the success rates of IVF and ICSI?

Success rates of IVF and ICSI depend on a number of factors but they are often measured in different ways and can be confusing and difficult to interpret.

We constantly monitor our success rates and they are available on the HFEA website along with the national success rates and further monitoring information.  www.hfea.gov.uk
