Our Success Rates Speak For Themselves

72.7% Live Birth Rate per transfer for patients under 35 years old using their own eggs
*Based on CDC Clinic Summary Reports published 2020
72.9% Live Birth Rate per transfer for patients 35-37 yrs old using their own eggs

If you are wondering how Overlake Reproductive Health compares to other fertility clinics' live birth success rates, we were #1 in Washington and #5 in the U.S. according to IVF Authority, based on CDC Clinic Summary Reports published 2020.

Now, take a look at our most recent stats

2022 ORH live Births

2022 ORH Live Birth Success Rate

Other top rated fertility clinics boost their Live Birth numbers by inserting multiple embryos, often resulting in twins or triplets. At ORH we will only implant one healthy embryo per cycle for a safe pregnancy. Because our embryos are frozen, they are ready when you are for baby number two. We won't risk the health of our moms by inserting multiple embryos to inflate our success rates.

Also, we won't push patients prematurely into using donor eggs to increase our numbers. If a patient's egg quality is marginal or they know they want more than one biologically related child, we'll counsel options for multiple retrieval cycles to obtain a genetically viable embryo or embryos for implantation.

While SART would have us emphasize the statistic of Live Birth/Intended Retrieval, we believe this disincentivizes clinics from doing all the things we believe in such as allowing patients to cycle using their own eggs rather than donor eggs – even if their prognosis is poor, allowing older patients to do more than one retrieval to accumulate viable embryos for more than one child, family balancing, universal PGT-A and SET (Single Embryo Transfer). We believe the most important metrics a patient should use to guide their selection are: number of embryos transferred, implantation rate, and live birth rate per transfer.

More Than an IVF Clinic

While we are nationally recognized for our high success rates with IVF, we are also the “go to” place for a thorough baseline evaluation to diagnose the factors that are causing the infertility problem. We know for a fact that we perform the most thorough baseline evaluation in the area because we routinely see charts from all the other clinics in town. A thorough evaluation is critical to efficient and timely success.

We don’t stop at that though! We at ORH think that a critical part of the entire process is a thorough discussion with each patient and partner (if applicable) to formulate a treatment plan that is individualized and specifically tailored for each situation. Sure, we’re great at IVF. But if you don’t need IVF, we’re great with the other treatment options as well and we’re delighted if “cheap and easy” is all you need!

Why Choose ORH for your care?

New medical technology and best practices are emerging all the time. Clinicians must spend a significant amount of time to stay current with the latest advancements in their field of medicine. Infertility medicine tends to change more rapidly than most.

At ORH, we are devoted to providing the best and most current fertility treatments to our patients. Important breakthroughs are carefully evaluated and are incorporated into our practice whenever it is reasonable to do so.

We believe in going the extra mile for our patients and are open 365 days a year. You can rest easy knowing that we will be there if your treatment day happens to fall on a weekend or holiday. Our goal is to treat each of our patients individually and to get them pregnant with the least invasive, most effective way possible.

RFID Tagging of All Patient Samples (IVF & IUI)

Taking security to the next level

We understand the immense level of trust that patients put in their fertility clinic to safeguard the identity of their most precious samples during reproductive procedures. To that end, we added another layer of security through the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. Not only were we the first clinic in the USA to adopt the use of RFID tags in all of our ART (IVF and IUI) procedures, we remain one of only a few clinics in the country with such a system.

RFID tags provide an additional level of oversight by constantly monitoring the identity of the samples throughout the process. The use of this system has provided both our patients and staff with peace of mind.

Complimentary Translation Services

Language shouldn’t be a barrier

Patients from all cultures and languages are welcome at ORH! We provide translators for our patients at no charge*.

If you require the use of a translator for your visit please give the office a minimum lead time of 2 days so we can make the proper arrangements.

Freeze-All IVF Protocols

Our new standard in IVF treatment

We have adopted a new standard in IVF: Routine day 5-7 Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies (PGT-A), a Freeze-all vitrification protocol, and Single embryo transfer (SET). Adopting these practices into our routine care have resulted in dramatic increases in the success rates at our practice.

The proof is in our numbers. In the last complete reporting year, our implantation rate reached a staggering 86.4% in patients under the age of 35! That means 86.4% of the transfers we performed in 2018 resulted in a pregnancy. Now, not every early pregnancy (implantation) results in a live birth, just as not every retrieval will result in a viable embryo to transfer. Biology is just not that simple.

According to Genesis Genetics and a recent abstract(1,2), there are only a small number of U.S. clinics that are currently doing this routinely. A recent study reported a 97% increase in live birth rates using this protocol, without SET, vs the older practice of day 3 or day 5 fresh transfers. Although SET was not used throughout this study the chance of pregnancy per embryo transferred was more than double with PGT-A and freeze-all compared with cycles without PGT-A(3). It should be noted, however, that not all studies have shown this degree of impact.

We don’t have a waiting list for PGT-A.

Next-Gen PGT-A

Increasing IVF Success

Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies (PGT-A) is a test that can be performed as part of an IVF cycle. PGT-A works by looking at the genetic material of each embryo and making sure that the embryo is genetically normal and contains the correct number of chromosomes. Abnormal embryos generally do not lead to successful pregnancies and can result in the birth of a child with a genetic condition.

The technique of PGT-A requires IVF and growing embryos to the blastocyst stage (day 5 to 7). Many IVF labs are not equipped to carry out this level of test. The embryo must be “hatched” in the IVF lab, and a few cells biopsied from the outer trophectoderm layer of cells (which later goes on to form the placenta and membranes of a pregnancy). The embryo is then vitrified (an advanced technique of embryo freezing), and stored for later transfer back to the uterus. The biopsied cell samples are sent to a PGT-A lab for a count of chromosomes.

Embryos are stored after sampling, since genetic testing takes about a week. Embryos do well with the freezing-thawing process, with >97% of embryos surviving vitrification and thaw. Implantation rates improve too with a delayed transfer cycle as we’re able to bring the lining of your uterus to optimal conditions for carrying a healthy baby to term.

Identifying embryos with genetic abnormalities before they are transferred can have numerous benefits, including, but not limited to: a higher chance of pregnancy, and a reduced risk of miscarriage. We now utilize advanced next-generation PGT-A on all IVF patients.

  • Dr. Johnson, Dr. Rehman, Jo and the staff at ORH are wonderful. It took four IVF cycles for us to get pregnant. Through treatment it felt like we were making progress each time and Dr. Johnson made sure we always remained hopeful. From day one he said "we will get you there", and they did. In a time full of physical and emotional challenges we could not have asked for a more skilled, caring team. We love that it is a small practice where you are treated like family instead of a patient number. We finally welcomed our first little guy 8 weeks ago and he is a dream come true.
  • Every time a friend or family member would get pregnant I would shut down and cry. We'd been trying for a long time to have a family and it just wasn't happening. We finally decided that we should seek help. We went to Overlake Reproductive Health for fertility testing. We worked with Dr. Johnson & Dr. Rehman and their staff. They gave us hope and really listened to us. Through the fertility testing we were able to conceive our first child. The void that I had in the longing to have a child has finally been filled and we couldn't be any happier. We finally have our little family. I am so thankful for your guys support at Overlake Reproductive Health during a very trying time. I would recommend Overlake Reproductive health based on our great experience. We would never go any where else
  • Drs Rehman & Johnson really know the subject on an expert level, they & the lab keep informed of the latest research, Jo & all the medical staff are as good as doctors about performing the procedures & answering questions about the meds & the office staff are super helpful & cheerful. In all, the most useful place to go for help with a difficult, expensive & stressful problem.
  • I love this clinic. The staff are fabulous from the medical staff to the receptionists ... everyone is professional and welcoming. I look forward to seeing them. There is no shortage of humor and it's evident that it is a nice workplace. The place is very clean and all the equipment looks modern and well maintained. It has fun, upbeat music and fresh flowers in the waiting room. I feel that I receive outstanding medical care here and that the treatment options offered reflect the latest developments in the field . Overlake Reproductive Health has made the whole IVF process a lot easier and more fun than I expected it to be.
  • Couldn't ask for a more supportive group of people, wonderfully professional medical staff, and the front office staff couldn't be more helpful, cheerful, and inviting. ORH is the best of the best!
