European pregnancy rates

Pregnancy rates in Europe

We present the pregnancy rates following IVF in European countries in 2009. The results were collated from the European IVF Monitoring Programme, EIM) that operates under the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE). The results were published in Human Reproduction, official journal of ESHRE (EIM, A.P. Ferraretti et al., Hum Reprod. 2013 July;28 (9):2318-2331, 2013).

This is the 13th   annual report of ESHRE, while the nine previous ones concern statistical data form the years 2001-2009. The data for 2009 were collected from 34 European countries and 1005 clinics. The quality of data differs from country to country and is not always complete.

For Greece, the data are derived from 4 IVF Units from a total of 50 and are collected by Prof. Basil Tarlatzis, Professor of Obstetrics-Gynaecology and Human Reproduction at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

Eugonia (with its present scientific composition) has participated fully in this annual registration of data since 1997.

We present three tables summarizing clinical pregnancies and live births rates resulting from IVF (Table 1), ICSI (Table 2) and Frozen embryos (Table 3).
