We are delighted to report that we have continued to build on our successes since we opened our doors in 2002 achieving thousands of pregnancies for couples from the Caribbean, USA, UK, Canada, Europe, and Barbados.
We believe both our high clinical and laboratory standards as well as the relaxing atmosphere of this beautiful island contribute to our success rates – of which we are very proud.
Male factor is very prevalent in the Caribbean and this is reflected in that approx 80% of cycles require ICSI. For this reason we show combined IVF and ICSI success rates. However, at Barbados Fertility Center we tailor treatment according to the needs of the patients.
Our flexible embryo culture system permits blastocyst culture. This is particularly beneficial for couples with 5 or more good quality embryos on day 3, when the extension of the culture to day 5 will significant improve embryo selection and ultimately success rates are 10-20% higher across depending on the age of the female. For women under 35 years old using their own eggs, a 77% clinical pregnancy rate was achieved with Blastocyst culture.
Maternal age has a significant impact on success rates. This relates to egg and subsequent embryo quality. The statistics given are for all women treated at these ages. If we focus on those within an age bracket who are producing good quality embryos, success rates are higher. In addition in cases where good numbers of embryos are available this too has a positive impact on chance of pregnancy.
