    i can name 3 women off the top of my head who are the same age as you and finally fell pregnant with their own eggs using IVF. The key was having the embryo(s) produced PGS tested. Once you know you have a chromosomally normal embryo to transfer, you can either bank it in the freezer whilst undergoing further cycles to produce more golden eggs or transfer it at your earliest convenience.

    Put in a search for the Over 40 Cycle Group here in Fertile Thoughts and you will find a group crammed with knowledge and experience and success and successes waiting in the wings. I have never encountered a group with so much specific knowledge about getting pregnant over 40 and many are using their own eggs or occasionally donor eggs of family members.

    I'm 43, ttc #11. Yes, I've had several children, but with a previous marriage.
    I also have had just as many losses as births. Those were always at the 5 to 7 week mark due to low progesterone.
    This month I started taking royal jelly and for the first time in over a year I had gobs of ewcm!
    I'm 10dpo and since Sunday have been feeling a continuing stretching pressure in my uterus.
    My obgyn is no help bc of my age and history of PE won't send me to fertility specialist, and the other area docs aren't taking new patients unless they're already pregnant, and can't see a RE without referral, which I can't seem to get.
    So I'm on my own entirely.

    I am looking at my 10 month old twins and I am age 43. They were conceived through IVF- my eggs and donor sperm and I used a gestational carrier (so a proven uterus).

    I don't think I would be here if I had not switched REs. The first RE used an old cycle and all those eggs were splintered (I was either 39 or 40). The second RE used an antagonist protocol which I am told is better for AMA (advanced maternal age) women. After three cycles I got one PGD embryo from each cycle. We transferred two embryos and both stuck. We will transfer the last embryo this fall.

    It can happen but I would suggest you get with an RE that is skilled in patients with AMA.

    TooOld, don't worry about it. Its not too old, of-course you can conceive at age 42. If your life style is healthy and active then you can definitely conceive dear.

    As far as I know age issues are always quite controversial... It is very difficult to establish particular age limit for everyone. Just never mind it and keep moving to your dreem I understand what i'm talking about as once my earlier abortion made my pregnancy impossible and I had to use services of surrogate. But it happens, wish such cases never happened...

    With the latest ART techniques it is possible. You need to consult a good Gynaecologist in your area and find out which fertility procedure is suitable for you. You can check some details here.

    Though over 40 is a barrier but In the recent era it is not a big matter. You should take a second or third opinion before taking your 3rd chance.

    While browsing the Internet I came across a thread on fertilityfriends co uk that is dedicated to ladies who are 50 and older. And believe me, the thread is very, very active. Life sometimes brings surprises as eg much younger husband
