Probability How many interviews needed to match in IM?

This may be a difficult question to answer I know, but please if you are out there and have any experience with please post your experience and how many interviews you did and then prematched or matched
I've got only three interviews but all of them were pretty much positive and with good experience and continued email correspondence with them.

I heard that three or four good IVs are enough to be matched or prematched in IM.

there's no cut off number of interviews that guarantee a match
the fact that they are still in contact with is a very good sign and they will likely rank you

According to the NRMP, in 2009 there were 508 independant applicants (ie non US seniors) who ranked 3 programs in internal medicine, 214 matched. This means grossly you have about 40% chance to match. However there are many factors that can push up this rate (above 95 scores, date of graduation, pevious residency back home, Green card, USCE, research....). Keep in faith.
