Publication update: Fertility Trends
An interim report looking at treatments for 2020 using provisional HFEA data was published in May 2022 (Impact of COVID-19 on fertility treatment 2020) and we expect to publish the next Fertility Trends by summer 2023.
All HFEA licensed clinics are required by law to provide us with their fertility treatment and outcomes data. We store this in our Register, thought to be the largest database of fertility treatment in the world. In 2021, we launched a new data submission system for clinics and migrated our data to a new database. This means we now need to upgrade our systems to enable us to make better use of our data for patients, clinicians and researchers – this work is due to be completed in winter 2022/23.
The HFEA will not be publishing our usual annual Register update – Fertility Trends – in 2022. The most recent analysis of success rates is Fertility Trends 2019 (published in May 2021).
