Age of the donor?: The biggest factor is the age of the donor. Using an anonymous or known egg donor under 30, with normal ovarian reserve screening, the success rate should be 75-80% or higher with transfer of two blastocysts, and lower with a single embryo transfer. If the donor is older then success rates fall. By et with 3, if you're referring to 3 embryos, this is unusual, unless a known donor is 38+.

With her own egg?: If it's her own egg, the average likelihood of delivering a baby is just under 17% (from national ivf stats at https://www.Sartcorsonline.Com/rptcsr_publicmultyear.Aspx?Clinicpkid=0).

Very good: The odds are excellent as long as all other aspects of your workup have been negative. Pregnancy rate with 2 embryos can give a 70% chance. Replacing 3 embryos in this situation would not be suggested as long as the egg donor was 21-28. Most donors are not accepted over 30. The risk of triplets is quite high and would cause significant obstetrical issues such as prematurity, decreased fetal size..
