DEV148F3: Relationship between the female age at which couples start building a family and the chance of realizing a family with three children, with and without use of IVF. The short lines above and below each point in the graph indicate the 95% confidence intervals.

Mentions: In Figs 1–3, the chances for completing a one-, two- and three-child family are given for all possible starting ages. For example, you can read from Fig. 2 that a start age of 35 years will give a couple an 80% chance of realizing a two-child family when IVF is used, and a 70% chance when it is not used.Figure 1
