Getting Pregnant Over 40
Though about 50% of women in their forties experience infertility, it is not at all uncommon for women to have a baby in their 40’s (even 50’s!). On their own, women over 40 have only about a 5% chance of successfully becoming pregnant on their own each month. But, with the help of a fertility specialist, those chances increase significantly, up to 60% or more. IVF over 40 yields the best success rates. But, the first step when determining treatment is to evaluate egg reserve and quality through simple blood work. Depending on those results, a treatment plan may include IUI, IVF, or Egg Donor IVF.
If you are under 30 and have been trying to conceive for more than 12 months, or are over 30 and have been trying for more than 6 months, you shouldn’t delay. Schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
