rates, success, theory, data

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.
