Embryos, IVF Success Rates, and Our Fertility Lab

Fox News Boston recently featured the story of Cambridge resident and new mother Janine, patient of Boston IVF's own Dr. Rita "miracle worker" Sneeringer and Dr. Denny Sakkas, as an example of how new technology makes a big difference for IVF pregnancies.

Within Massachusetts, 2 percent of babies are born via in-vitro fertilization (IVF). 2 percent might not sound like much at first, but that statistic translates to roughly one child per Massachusetts classroom -- significant representation! 

Part of the reason for such a large population of IVF babies is that here in Massachusetts, we're fortunate to be one of just fifteen states in the country to mandate insurance for fertility coverage. This is what guarantees a high level of access to care, but recent scientific advancements, like 24/7 embryo monitoring, improved egg and sperm techniques, and innovations in genetic testing, are what pave the way for higher IVF success rates. Together, these scientific techniques help provide doctors with information about the best embryos and when they should be implanted.

For the 1 in 8 couples experiencing infertility and hoping to become pregnant, our technology gives men and women reason for hope.
