I have just turned 43 and am about to start IVF treatment as a single woman. It's all still very confusing for me, and a lot of the information is going in one ear and out the other I think!
As part of the pre-screening I had an ultrasound which showed I had 12 eggs - which the specialist says is excellent for my age. But other things I've read is that 15 is needed for optimum results, and I've seen posts here with people with 30! As I'm about the start the hormone treatment I'm also unsure whether that is supposed to increase the number of eggs, or just their quality?
Can someone clear this up for me? Thanks!
