IVF success rates provide important information for patients hoping to become parents
When patients explore fertility treatments, the topic of IVF usually surfaces. David T. Vandermolen MD, MS, our Northern Louisiana fertility doctor, provides medical expertise and compassionate care that may include IVF. Dr. Vandermolen realizes our patients want to discuss factors influencing IVF success and IVF success rates as they make their treatment decisions.
Understanding IVF success rates
While reviewing fertility clinic outcomes, you should understand the limits of the information related to IVF success rates. Making accurate comparisons between clinics can be difficult because of the differences in patient populations and the criteria used for evaluation.
Dr. Vandermolen encourages patients to consider the following details when looking at factors influencing IVF success.
- Duration of infertility
- Amount of pre-IVF treatments
- Number of IVF cycles attempted
- Differences in patients’ ovarian reserve
- How quickly clinics encourage patients to move to IVF
Additionally, fertility clinics may differ in terms of how they assess decreased ovarian reserve and in determining which patients should no longer try IVF.
We focus on affordable, compassionate patient care
Providing cost-effective treatment options remains one of our fundamental philosophies. Our Northern Louisiana fertility doctor routinely begins with fertility medication as a first step. We offer controlled ovarian stimulation with intrauterine insemination (IUI) to many patients. Additionally, Dr. Vandermolen carefully evaluates patients to see who would benefit from surgical treatments.
Providing cost-effective treatment options remains one of our fundamental philosophies. The initial cost-effective treatment may be as simple as ovulation induction with oral medications, or it may range from controlled ovarian hyperstimulation to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF is for a number of patients the cost-effective treatment, and for some patients it is the only effective treatment, and as such the first choice. Also, Dr. Vandermolen carefully evaluates patients to see who would benefit from surgical treatments.

At our Northern Louisiana fertility center, we provide individualized care based on a thorough evaluation of your situation. If you want to move to IVF quickly, we can assist with this request. Dr. Vandermolen will evaluate your specific case before generating a customized treatment plan.
Often, issues such as tubal disease, extensive endometriosis, severe male factor infertility, advancing age or declining ovarian reserve make moving swiftly to IVF an appropriate course of action.
Patients with diminished ovarian reserve and those at an older age will receive counseling about their options and expected success rates. When the estimated IVF outcomes meet patient expectations, we will move forward with the treatment.
