The Sussex Downs Fertility Centre is licensed and inspected by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. The HFEA is the UK’s independent regulator overseeing the use of gametes and gametes.

To find out more about what the success rate means to you, you would need to book a consultation with one of our fertility consultants who will be able to give you your personalised success rate after they have completed all your tests and consultation.

This individual success rate will give an estimation of your chances of success, based on a number of factors including your reproductive history, age, egg reserve, previous treatment history and any potential male factor issues.

It can often be very confusing trying to understand a centre’s success rates: This is why it is important to remember that age alone cannot determine success and other things can also have an effect. You should consider:

  • The type of patient and any selection criteria
  • The type of treatment the centre offers

You can see the latest success rates published by the HFEA below.

The HFEA has strict guidelines on how success rates should be reported. They also report on whether a centre’s results are below, consistent or above the national average. We treat a range of cases and always put the health and safety of our patients just as high as our drive for excellent success rates. We’re extremely proud to perform above the national average in many areas.
