Hope For New Life In the Late 40s
Journey To Reach Motherhood
An increasing number of women have dedicated their twenties into their career and education, which means they are starting to build families at an older age than past generations.
Women want to have children later in life, to get their careers began, and to create a home. They may have separated and want to start a family with a new partner. Middle-aged women are often fitter and more health-conscious than their younger counterparts lately.
The Truth About IVF Over 50
Why do women over 50 face so many problems linked to their fertility? Because, women in their 50s are going through menopause, which means that they stop ovulating. And, with no eggs, fertilisation (therefore, pregnancy) cannot happen.
Women are born with about 2 million eggs, and as they get closer to menopause, the remaining eggs are no more than 100. That decline in the number of eggs comes with a decrease in their quality, as well as age-related changes in the uterus that contribute to reduced infertility. What is remarkable, though, is the fact that although a woman’s eggs have an expiration date, her uterus can still provide a welcoming environment for a fetus to grow into, making pregnancy at an older age something completely achievable, even if the woman cannot use her own eggs!
Success rates over 40
IVF success rates decline with age, but many women in their mid-40s and early 50s can still conceive with their own eggs if they are given suitable fertility treatment. As women get into their late 40s, IVF statistics become grimmer, but not all hope is lost.
The chances of conception over 40 for several may still be quite good. Indeed, the number of women over 40 having a baby has raised four-fold within the past 30 years – and in Britain births to women over 35 now represent one in five of all babies born. The wishes to have a baby is a strong emotion, whatever the particular circumstances; some might be single women hoping to fulfil a lifelong desire, and some might be looking to complete a family which they started several years ago.
But it’s a fact that many women in this age group have difficulty conceiving spontaneously, and are turning more and more to fertility treatment.
They are not alone. In the UK around one in three of all women having fertility treatments were aged 40 or over. Depending on the results of your tests, Team Miracle will be able to advise you on your treatment options. All of these options vary in success for women over 40 and your doctor can discuss with you what treatment will guide to the most successful result for you.
How to Improve Your IVF Success Rate After 40 and Early 50s
Remember that infertility treatment only comes after a consultation with a doctor, an ultrasound scan and a blood test for an AMH –anti-muller hormone, which will show a supply of eggs in your ovaries.
But what if your eggs are not any longer healthy, or contain genetic abnormalities?
Egg Donation Over Age 40 and Early 50s
If the quantity of eggs is poor, or there is a long and, unfortunately, unsuccessful treatment history, it is still probable to become a mother.
