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

What age is best for ivf?

What age is best for ivf?

Younger is better: All fertility treatments are more successful in younger women.

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

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

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
