Formatted Abstract/Summary
Most studies of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) outcomes use cycle-based data and fail to account for women who use repeated IVF cycles. The objective of this study was to examine the association between the number of eggs collected (EC) and the percentage fertilised normally, and women’s self-reported medical, personal and social histories.

In conclusion, women’s age remains the most significant characteristic associated with EC but not the percentage of eggs fertilised normally.
