Generating translatable evidence to improve patient care has proved challenging in reproductive medicine, with many ‘add-on’ treatments in routine assisted conception clinical practice that have not been reliably tested. This has consequences for patient care; specifically, IVF pregnancy rates have not improved. A change of culture is required in our profession, from indiscriminately applying the latest ‘add-on’ to large-scale participation in generating reliable translatable evidence.
