Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Mr Louis Ng Kok Kwang
MP for Nee Soon GRC
Question No. 452
To ask the Minister for Health what is the 25th, 50th and 75th percentile of cycles required for successful pregnancy for those who undergo in-vitro fertilisation.
Based on available data from 2008 to 2020, the 25th percentile of cycles undergone by a woman before achieving a successful live birth delivery from in-vitro fertilisation is one cycle. The 50th and 75th percentile of cycles is two cycles.
 Data is provided for successful live birth delivery instead of successful pregnancy as the former better reflects the end-outcome of successful IVF. Nonetheless, the data for the two are similar.
