Park Avenue Fertility – A fertility Center of Excellence

We are very proud of our IVF pregnancy rates here at Park Avenue Fertility.

We are delighted that we are able to achieve high pregnancy rates despite typically transferring back only 1-2 embryos to most patients less than 40 years old.  In fact, we pride ourselves on offering elective single embryo transfer (eSET).  Unlike many other programs, we pride ourselves on our non-existent higher-order multiple rate – there has not been a set of triplets in the last five years at Park Avenue Fertility!

That is what makes Park Avenue Fertility a fertility Center of Excellence and a premier fertility center in Fairfield County, CT.

Perhaps we are most proud of the fact that at Park Avenue Fertility, we do not discriminate against patients with low or poor ovarian reserve (diminished ovarian reserve = DOR).  We do our best to help patients with DOR achieve success, even though they may have fewer eggs retrieved and embryos transferred compared to patients with “normal” ovarian reserve.

Please note: these data are not to be used to compare success rates between fertility clinics since such comparisons may not be meaningful as patient medical characteristics, ovarian stimulation regimens, and acceptance criteria
for IVF often varies between clinics.  For example, Park Avenue Fertility does not disallow patients with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) from proceeding with IVF.
