How many eggs should I freeze?

A large IVF unit in the US has used its extensive database to calculate how many eggs women should freeze to have a reasonable chance of a having a live birth when they return to use the eggs later.

The figure below illustrates by how much the chance of a live birth rate increases with the number of frozen eggs that are available. That chance declines with a woman's age. The highest chance is achieved when using donor eggs (usually from young fertile egg donors).
