GoStork helps you match with your ideal clinics, based on their experience and success rates matched to your personal journey (including age and services needed), as well as the clinic’s location, costs, patient ratings and reviews, doctors experience and more. While you can sort and select based on what is important to you - below outlines what many fertility patients look for when researching their options.
What are the success rates for patients with similar cases to yours – including your age and the fertility services you’ll need? This data can help you get a better idea, for example, of your chance of success per IVF cycle or embryo transfer. We make this part easier than ever before, as we share each clinic’s most relevant success rates based on your personal journey ahead, taking both your age and the services you need into consideration. Only GoStork personalizes success rates in this way – providing a much more accurate picture than the more general success rates you may see published elsewhere.
Are the doctors at the clinics you’re considering board-certified? Where did they attend medical school? The experience, education, published research and even languages spoken are included for the doctors in each clinic’s profile in our marketplace.
Look at past patients’ thoughts on their experiences to gain insight into the fertility clinic, its practices and how welcoming it may feel.
We offer unprecedented cost transparency! You’ll see the costs for the services you need included in each clinic profile on GoStork – helping you to financially plan ahead.
A clinic close to you, or potentially your egg donor or gestational carrier, can help you reduce costs on your journey. If location is not that important, you may want to consider a clinic with specific experience dealing with cases similar to yours as a higher priority than location.
The natural menstrual cycle is suppressed through injectable medications to help make treatment more effective.Timeline: 10-12 days
You (or your egg donor) is prescribed self-injectable follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) to boost egg supply. This is followed by a final hormone injection to help the eggs mature.Timeline: 2 weeks
A light sedative is used to retrieve the eggs.A 30-minute procedure and 30-40 minutes in recovery.
The eggs are first examined for maturity and quality and then fertilized with sperm from the partner or a donor. The fertilized eggs are then allowed to grow in the laboratory.Timeline: About 6 days
The embryo is monitored to ensure it’s growing well. A number of tests may be offered at this stage: PGT-A, which provides information on the embryo’s genetic health, and PGT-M which tests for inherited disorders caused by mutations in a single gene. After the biopsy, the embryos are frozen. You can learn more about genetic testing in our helpful article.Timeline: Test results take around 1-3 weeks to arrive.
The embryo is transferred into the womb using a thin catheter. No sedative is necessary for this step. Remaining embryos can be frozen (cryopreserved) for future transfers.20-30 minute procedure, followed by a 2-hour rest time.
Some clinics suggest a regular at-home pregnancy test two weeks after the embryo transfer, while others request that you go in for a more accurate blood test. If the IVF cycle has been successful, ultrasound scans are carried out in the following weeks, after which you will follow regular antenatal care.Timeline: 2 weeks (and hopefully a successful pregnancy: 9 more months!)
