    Fertility treatment success rate up

    Fertility treatment success rates continue to rise in the UK. The number of women undergoing fertility treatment continues to rise, as do success rates, figures show.

    The most up-to-date UK data for 2005 showed a 6% rise in the number of women having IVF, from 30,861 in 2004 to 32,626 in 2005.

    Overall, 41,932 cycles of IVF treatment were given to these 32,626 women. This is a rise of 4.5% on the 40,164 cycles given in 2004.

    A total of 9,058 births resulted in the delivery of 11,262 children, including multiple births.

    This gives an overall live birth rate for all IVF of 21.6%, up 0.9% from 2004 when the figure was 20.6%.

    For women under 35, the rate was 29.6%, up 1.8% from the 28.1% in 2004.

    Another 645 children were born following donor insemination, from a total of 606 births. This is down 11% on 2004, when 749 children were born.

    The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), which produced the data, said newer treatments such as ICSI (intra cytoplasmic sperm injection) meant a partner's sperm could now be used in more cases.

    The number of men registering as sperm donors has risen, with 307 donors registering in 2006, up 19% from 2005, when 259 registered.

    The HFEA also issued its newest Find a Clinic section on its website, which includes details of every licensed fertility clinic in the UK. It is available at guide.hfea.gov.uk.
