Yeah, it can get down right technical and quantitative when calculating your success rate. (Issue x) y = Rate/(age) π with(out) ED²
While I actually love math, specifically trig, I try not to dwell too deep into success rates. You get your hopes up. You factor in all the variables .. see I did it again.
However, sometimes you just want to know what the data is saying since really, daily, the technology advances before your very eyes:
Success rates when using donor eggs are not as dependent on the woman’s age.
The percentage of live births per cycle when using donor eggs is 55.1% with fresh embryos.
The percentage of live births per cycle when using donor eggs is 31.9% when using frozen embryos.
It’s interesting to note that IVF success rates with donor eggs are even higher than a woman younger than 35 using her own eggs. Donor eggs offer the best chance for success.
I’m not dwelling. No really. I ……….. OK a little.
