Success rates

At the Assisted Conception Services (ACS) within the Glasgow Royal Infirmary our success rates make us one of the most successful fertility services in Scotland, with success rates above or consistent with the national average. Since re-opening our doors on the 15th of September 2014 after a full renovation we have helped an average of 1 baby a day be born.

The individualised care we provide and our tailor-made treatment plans, means that you receive the best treatment available and allows us to offer you your best chance of taking home a baby. Your treatment includes the use of Embryoscope time-lapse incubators. EmbryoScope incubators create an undisturbed environment for your embryos to grow and provide us with maximum information to help us select the best embryo(s) for your treatment.

Success Rates

Our live birth rate (LBR) is calculated when all pregnancy outcomes (babies born) for a calendar year are available.

We can also report the clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) for the full year of 2016 which is detailed below:

Our clinical pregnancy rates (CPR) are confirmed and recorded by our nursing team when a foetal heartbeat has been seen during ultrasound.

We have split the clinical pregnancy rate into fresh and frozen embryos and into different age groups dependent on the female partner’s age at the time of treatment. This may help you find the success rates most applicable to you and for the treatment you are receiving.

Reducing the risk of multiple births

We are proud to say our most recent multiple pregnancy rate for 2016 is 8.7% and is well within the 10% multiple birth national target set out by the HFEA.
