Is freezing eggs at age 33 still a good idea if considering IVF later? (At age 35-37) or would it be better just to wait?

Is freezing eggs at age 33 still a good idea if considering IVF later? (At age 35-37) or would it be better just to wait?

Fertility decline: Fertility declines with age. IVF pregnancy rates are 10% lower in women over age 35 (compared to women younger than 35) and even lower after 38 and so on. Egg freezing allows an improved outcome at an older age since eggs were produced from younger ovaries. ...Read more

Ivf (Definition)

In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more

What age is best for ivf?

What age is best for ivf?

Younger is better: All fertility treatments are more successful in younger women. The decision of when to undergo any treatment is a balance of what is needed, results, costs and personal preferences. I think waiting until all else fails can be a poor strategy because IVF technology works and is generally safe. A new trend has been to create and bank embryos when young for children in the future. ...Read more

Wanting to get an IVF done in Texas? Need more information I am 36 will 37 in Jan!

Do it!: You don't say "where" in Texas, but our state has great opportunities to pursue IVF in the major cities: San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Austin and many others. In general, women age 36-37 are quite successful with IVF; it's not like being 25-30 but outcomes can be very good. I'd be delighted to help you (in San Antonio) but look at practices in the area you live or the nearest cities. Good wishes. ...Read more

About 1-5%: The chance of pregnancy at age 45 is less than 3% with ivf. Miscarriages are more common as women get older too, so the ongoing pregnancy and live birth rates are less than 1%. Egg donation is a better option. ...Read more

What is the best way to calculate my gestational age with donor ivf?

Get a calendar: How many days old was the embryo when it was transferred? Count back to determine the conception date (that is usually the same as the egg harvest date). Then from that date, looking at a calendar, add 38 calendar weeks. Your due date should be the same day of the week as your conception day. ...Read more

Hard to say: The data provided is brief.If you have worked through a fertility center I would hope they have explored structural reasons for your looses.

What is success of IVF with amh .45, 
fsh 7.8, LH 5.6, and 7-9 follicles total at age 28?

Pregnancy: It is difficult to put a number for what your success may be. These tests also are not predictive of pregnancy rather your response to fertility treatment medications during ivf. Your chances may not be as high as someone your same age with normal ovarian reserve. However, your age places you at a high chance in general. Good luck. ...Read more

37 year old IVF patient with decreased ovarian reserve. Should i continue trying or use donor eggs?

It depends: Donor eggs will clearly be the better option for having a healthy baby. There is no question that the chance of having a healthy baby is lower if you try to use your own eggs, especially when you have decreased reserve. If you already tried ivf but didn't get pregnant, it might be worth another try as long as you stimulated well and had 5 or more eggs. Otherwise i think donor eggs are best. ...Read more
