Doctors perform more IVF treatments, but multiple births decline

to 521 out of a total of approximately 700 clinics.

The report shows that France, Germany and the UK continue to perform more IVF treatment cycles than all the other European countries put together; France and Germany have carried out 46,000 each and the UK 35,000, which amounts to more than 50% of all cycles.

Availability is still highest in the Nordic countries, with Denmark now in the lead, having overtaken Finland. Denmark reports 1608 treatments per million inhabitants, compared with France which reports 791 per million, and the UK, 595 per million.

The proportion of IVF children out of all children born has increased in all countries where information is available. In Iceland it is 3.79% versus 3.45% in 1997, Denmark 3% versus 2.63%, Finland 2.77% versus 2.39%, Sweden 2.42% versus 2.25%, Norway 1.7% versus 1.3%, France 1.29% versus 1.21%, and the UK 1.14% versus 1.04%.

The mean pregnancy rate increased slightly from 26.1% to 27% per embryo transfer.

Dr Nygren said: "The data we have collected shows some interesting trends, particularly in relation to the decrease in multiple births. We are pleased that more countries are reporting their IVF results; there has been a big increase in reporting in Germany. In addition, two countries have agreed to join the consortium for the first time: Ireland and the Ukraine. Austria and Slovakia are also considering joining."

He added: "We do need to treat some of the data with caution, because different countries within Europe have different data reporting systems. However, it is possible to gain valuable insight into trends in Europe from this report."
