Hello Anonymous
Congrats on meeting someone new!

IVF, as with any fertility issue, has a lot to do with your age and health status, so without a medical history and current state of your health as well as your age, it is hard to make any kind of prediction. The American Pregnancy Association says this:

How successful is in vitro fertilization?
The success rate of IVF clinics depends on a number of factors including patient characteristics and treatment approaches. It is also important to realize that pregnancy rates do not equate to live birth rates. In the United States, the live birth rate for each IVF cycle started is approximately:
30 to 35% for women under age 35
25% for women ages 35 to 37
15 to 20% for women ages 38 to 40
6 to 10% for women ages over 40
The success rates of individual clinics are published on the web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (http://www.americanpregnancy.org/infertility/ivf.html)

As they state, the CDC has extensive information on this, down to success rates for specific clinics. You can see this information at:

We have information and a lot of discussion on IVF here on our site as well: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/vitro-fertilization-ivf.

I hope this will help you, and I wish you luck.
