HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY (ART) RESULTS

The In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) program at OHSU performs frozen embryo transfers on all stages of development to increase your chance of becoming pregnant. The day of transfer depends on several variables including the:

  • Number of embryos available for transfer
  • Age of patient
  • Treatment category
  • Previous patient history -- and other issues

You, your doctor and the embryology lab decide together  how many embryos to transfer.

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is a term that describes different methods used to help infertile couples. These methods involve removing eggs from your body, mixing them with sperm in the lab and then placing the embryos back into your body. In vitro fertilization is a common form of ART.

When you choose OHSU, you gain several important benefits

  • We consistently rank in the top 10 percent of ART pregnancy  success rates nationwide. 
  • We are able to maintain high success rates while transferring an average of only two embryos per cycle.

By transferring fewer embryos per cycle, you greatly reduce the risk of becoming pregnant with three babies – or more. That means we can offer you a high possibility of becoming pregnant, with a reduced risk of serious health problems due to multiple births.
