Success rates

The Spanish Fertility Society is in charge of compiling the results of all the Spanish assisted reproduction clinics every year and making a statistical analysis. In fact, the SEF is the only scientific and independent organization of the clinics that collects and publishes these data in an objective manner.

Although our analysis of this clinic was carried out in 2nd November, 2020, we have to indicate that the last report published by the SEF shows the success rates obtained in the year 2018 (National Activity Register 2018-SEF Register).

Normally, there is a delay of about 2 years in the publication of these statistics due to the difficulty in data collection and the controls that are carried out. It should be noted that, to collect data from a gestation achieved in December 2017, we must wait until delivery, which will be approximately in September 2018.

It should also be taken into account that directly comparing pregnancy rates between different clinics can lead to misunderstandings because there are many factors that influence the results, such as the cause of sterility or the particular characteristics of each treatment.

Therefore, the SEF data shown below should be taken as a mere guide. In addition, we recommend reading this article for a better interpretation of the statistics.

IVF/ICSI

Realized cycles

Number of total cycles performed by the clinic in a year.

The SEF does not provide an exact number of annual cycles that each center performs, but rather it does so in the form of ranges as follows: less than 100 annual cycles, between 100 and 500 annual cycles, or more than 500 annual cycles.

From inviTRA we consider that for a better interpretation of the results it would be good that the SEF provides more exact data or smaller ranges for the number of annual cycles.

This is the total number of cycles performed by Ginemed in a year.

More information
Cycles with fresh embryos: > 500 per year
Cycles with frozen embryos: > 500 per year

Implantation rate per transfer

The probability that an embryo will implant in the woman's uterus after the transfer.

This success rate refers to the probability that a transferred embryo will nest in the woman's uterus. It is calculated as follows: number of gestational sacs observed on ultrasound divided by the number of embryos transferred.

The SEF shows this value in the form of an interval, since it is very complicated to provide an exact percentage due to the variability of factors that we have already discussed.

It should also be taken into account that the more assisted reproduction cycles the clinic performs, the narrower this interval will be and the better the interpretation.

Below, we show the implantation rates per embryo transfer in Ginemed.

More information
Fresh embryo transfer
28,8% - 38,2%
Frozen embryo transfer
38,2% - 44,7%

Pregnancy probability per transfer

Probability that an embryo transfer will lead to a pregnancy, regardless of the number of embryos transferred.

This success rate refers to the probability of pregnancy for each embryo transfer, regardless of the number of embryos transferred and the type of gestation obtained, that is, whether it is a single or multiple gestation.

The SEF divides this success rate according to the woman's age and is also shown in the form of an interval, so it is likely that very large intervals will be found in clinics that perform few cycles.

These are the pregnancy rates per embryo transfer obtained by Ginemed.

Percentage of transferred embryos

Percentage of embryo transfers made with one, two or three embryos

According to Law 14/2006 on Assisted Human Reproduction Techniques, in Spain it is only permitted to transfer a maximum of 3 embryos at each attempt.

Even so, a higher percentage of single-embryo transfers is now considered a quality parameter for clinics, since although transfers of two or three embryos increase the rate of gestation, twin or multiple pregnancies have many risks for the mother and babies and must be avoided at all costs.

The recommendation of inviTRA is to transfer only 1 or 2 embryos whenever possible.

In Ginemed they have the following percentages in terms of number of embryos transferred.

More information

Fresh embryo transfer

Transfer of 1 embryo (42%)
Transfer of 2 embryos (54.2%)
Transfer of 3 embryos (3.8%)

Frozen embryo transfer

Transfer of 1 embryo (43.7%)
Transfer of 2 embryos (53.2%)
Transfer of 3 embryos (3.1%)

Type of pregnancy per transfer

Types of pregnancies achieved according to the number of embryos transferred

As we have said, a single gestation is the best result that can be obtained after an assisted reproduction treatment.

In the following graphs, the percentage of each type of gestation obtained in Ginemed is shown according to the number of embryos transferred.

Due to the risks associated with multiple pregnancies (lower birth weight, higher probability of premature birth, etc.), the ideal would be to always obtain a single gestation rate of 100%, regardless of having transferred 1, 2 or 3 embryos.

IVF with egg donation

Realized cycles

Number of total cycles performed by the clinic in a year.

As far as egg donation is concerned, these are the ranges of annual cycles performed by Ginemed.

As we have indicated above, the SEF does not provide the exact number of cycles performed by a center and that makes it difficult to interpret.

More information
Fresh IVF cycles: 100 a 500 per year
Cycles with frozen embryos: 100 a 500 per year

Implantation rate per transfer

The probability that an embryo will implant in the woman's uterus after the transfer.

The probability of a successful egg donation is usually higher than that of IVF with own eggs.

Taking this into account, these are the implantation rates obtained in Ginemed for IVF with donated eggs.

More information
56% - 67,5%
36,8% - 47,6%

Pregnancy probability per transfer

Probability that an embryo transfer will lead to a pregnancy, regardless of the number of embryos transferred.

In the case of egg donation, the probability of achieving a pregnancy does not depend so much on the age of the recipient woman. Still, the SEF divides this success rate equally into age ranges.

It should also be noted that the current trend is to perform IVF with frozen donor eggs rather than fresh ones.

These are the pregnancy rates by embryo transfer obtained in Ginemed for egg donation.

More information

Fresh embryo transfer

Recipient woman's age: under 35 years old
29,6% - 90,4%
Recipient woman's age: between 35 and 39 years old

Percentage of transferred embryos

Percentage of embryo transfers made with one, two or three embryos

Given the high probability of achieving a pregnancy with donated eggs, it is always preferable to transfer a single embryo in this treatment in order to avoid a multiple pregnancy.

In Ginemed the embryos resulting from egg donation are transferred in the following manner.

More information

Transfer of fresh embryos

Transfer of 1 embryo (60.1%)
Transfer of 2 embryos (39.9%)
Transfer of 3 embryos (0%)

Transfer of frozen embryos

Transfer of 1 embryo (55.2%)

Artificial insemination with husband's sperm

Pregnancy rate per cycle

Number of pregnancies per cycle according to the woman's age.

This success rate refers to the probability of achieving a pregnancy for each artificial insemination performed.

The SEF divides this success rate according to the woman's age and is also shown in the form of an interval, so it is likely to be found with very large intervals in clinics that perform few cycles.

Below are the pregnancy rates per cycle obtained in Ginemed.

More information
Age of patient: between 35 and 39 years old
0% - 44,8%

Type of gestation by pregnancy

Type of pregnancy obtained after performing an artificial insemination treatment

Single gestation is the best result that can be obtained after an assisted reproduction treatment, either by artificial insemination or by in vitro fertilization.

In the following graphs, the percentages of each type of pregnancy obtained in Ginemed are shown for each pregnancy achieved with artificial insemination. These data are also divided according to the woman's age.

Due to the risks associated with multiple pregnancies (lower birth weight, higher probability of premature birth, etc.), the ideal would be to always obtain a single gestation rate of 100%.

Artificial insemination with donor sperm

Pregnancy rate per cycle

Number of pregnancies per cycle according to the woman's age.

To show the pregnancy rate of donor artificial insemination, the SEF divides the results according to the woman's age.

These are the probability intervals of pregnancy achieved by Ginemed for donor artificial insemination.

Type of gestation by pregnancy

Type of pregnancy obtained after performing an artificial insemination treatment

As for the type of pregnancy obtained after getting a positive result with donor artificial insemination, these are the data obtained by Ginemed according to the woman's age.

It is worth noting the risks that a multiple pregnancy entails for both mother and babies, so the ideal result in any assisted reproduction treatment is a single gestation.

More information

Women under 35 years

Single pregnancy (80%)
Twin pregnancy (20%)
Multiple pregnancy (0%)

Women between 35-39 years

Experts in implantation failure & recurrent miscarriage

Extremely challenging cycles represent 10-20% of all infertile patients. Until recently, many of them where "evicted", which forced them to assume that they would never be able to become mothers.

For this reason, Ginemed created the Implantation Failure and Recurrent Miscarriage Unit, which aims to help patients with special needs: implantation failure, recurrent miscarriages, and unexplained infertility.

In short, extremely challenging cases, which require a more specialized approach and the performance of specific tests and evaluations: immunological and non-immunological tests, and/or endometrial biopsy.

Given the complexity of these particular cases, these patients are treated through individual consultations (your clinical history is required beforehand). Consultations can be done at Ginemed Sevilla or via Skype (by appointment).

Prevention of social infertility

Time flies and you don't even realize. Becoming a mother has always been one of your goals in life, but the right moment has not arrived yet. The problem is, age matters, and 3 in every 5 cases of infertility are caused by an advanced age. From age 25 to 35, female reproductive capacity is reduced to up to 50%.

For this reason, the Ginemed Foundation has launched an initiative to prevent social infertility. The goal is to let our society know that the fertility status can be known with a simple bloodwork and a ultrasound, two tests that they will perform for free to all women who are between 23-38 years old, at any of the Ginemed clinics.

Guaranteed embryo program

Not knowing the number of embryos that we will obtain after IVF is one of the most common worries amongst patients, followed by the doubts regarding their quality, and the fear to the final quotation.

Thus, because your own peace is a key value for Ginemed, they have created a special Egg Donation Program with guaranteed embryos, tailored with a wide range of options available, so that you can choose the one that best fits your needs.

Without surprises or small print. Now you will know every single detail of your medical treatment, including all possible options, so you are worried only about what really matters.

History of Ginemed

Ginemed is a healthcare network specializing in human assisted reproduction that has been combining medical and research assistance for 25 years, which has allowed them to become a referent nationally and internationally. Not only for the scientific community, but also for patients. In fact, over 40% of their patients are from foreign countries.

Assisted Reproduction Units of Ginemed offer the best care quality in terms of staff, technologies, and facilities. In short, their goal is to offer solutions to every patient, regardless of the fertility problem they have. Moreover, the Units are equipped with transparent lab walls so that patients can see what the staff is doing at the lab, which demonstrates the importance of transparency and quality, both key values for Ginemed.

They are specialists in male infertility testing as well as extremely challenging cases (implantation failure and recurrent miscarriage). Their outcomes (audited and published on the website of the Spanish Fertility Society) are above the average for many treatments.

Currently, Ginemed has Reproduction Units in Madrid, Murcia, Valencia, Seville, Huelva, Cadiz, and Lisbon. All of them contribute to increasing their list of achievements annually.

Also, they highlight their commitment to continued training, research, and social action through the Ginemed Foundation. In this sense, it should be noted that they are the coordinators of the Master's Degree in Human Reproduction of the University of Seville, which celebrated their 6th edition in 2018.
