FIV success rates are on the rise, with one in every 25 births in Australia now a baby with IVF.

More than 13,000 babies with IVF were born in Australia in 2016/2017, according to a report from the Fertility Society of Australia.

This is due to important technological developments in IVF technology and also depends to a large extent on the age of the mother.

More women 40 and older are opting to undergo in vitro fertilization procedures, with their success rates increasing by 13 percent, according to the Brisbane Times.

More than 13,000 babies with IVF were born in Australia in 2016/2017, according to a report from the Fertility Society of Australia.

Women in their 20s had a live delivery rate of 36.9 percent for embryo transfer, while 33.3 percent was the success rate for those in frozen cycles who used their own eggs.

Rates of complications, such as spontaneous abortions and premature births, have also decreased significantly.

Data from 2016 also showed that there were more in vitro fertilization deliveries through frozen embryo transfers instead of fresh cycles, with frozen embryo transfer rates reaching almost 60 percent, according to The Brisbane Times.

IVF success rates are divided into four categories: initiated cycles, clinical pregnancies, embryo transfers and live births.

According to 2016 FIV data for Australia and New Zealand, 81,062 cycles are initiated, followed by 66,664 cases of embryo transfers (pictured)

Meanwhile, 18,269 were clinical pregnancies and 14,515 were live births.

"When I started 35 years ago, IVF was an experiment, today it's a standard medical treatment," said Professor Michael Chapman, president of the Fertility Society of Australia.

"These results confirm that Australia is a leading provider of safe IVF, with multiple pregnancy rates among the lowest in the world."
