Facts and Figures from Dr. Val

In case you were wondering, here are some facts and figures from Dr. Val's office that she gave us.

From 2002-2008

Clinical Pregnancies 664/1315 (50%)

Delivered Pregnancies 582/1315 (44%)

Multiple Delivered Pregnancies 193/582 (33%)

So basically, it's a 50/50 shot...encouraging, huh?

Dr. Val also gave us some information on ARC which is a program that to explain, well basically, it's like taking a gamble on IVF. Basically, if we go through ARC, you can choose different plans (1 cycle, 2 cycles, 3 cycles, etc...) and you have to pay them all up front for your IVF. If it isn't successful, you get SOME money back. If say you do a 2 cycle plan and get pregnant on your first cycle, well then you just paid double. I'm not 100% sure how this works, I'll post more about it as I get details.
