CAN YOU HAVE A BABY OVER 40?

Some women who are trying to conceive over the age of 40 are pushed into fertility treatments before they are given a chance to let nature take its course. It may take a little longer to get pregnant at older ages, but it is not impossible.

IVF Over 40? Not so Fast! When I was trying to conceive, I became the women's support group leader for my local infertility organization. I saw some very interesting results. Many of us got pregnant between treatment cycles! Here are some examples:

_______

Two women were told their FSH was too high and their only chance of success was to consider an egg donor. One of these women got pregnant while looking for the egg donor, the other got pregnant while trying to save up enough money for the procedure(last time I saw her, she was about 8 months pregnant with her second!)

______

One woman (43) developed an ovarian cyst after being on fertility drugs. She was forced to take a break and got pregnant while on her "break" (she went on to have a normal pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby boy on her 44th birthday - a homebirth!)

_______

One woman finally adopted and shortly thereafter got pregnant, had a healthy baby boy and is currently pregnant again (just saw her at her son's first birthday party!)

_______

And...of course there's me, the "longshot" of the group - pregnant naturally with one tube and delivered normally at the age of 44.

_______

It's interesting that a group of women labeled "infertile" (by the medical definition) turned out to be quite fertile indeed! The BBC news published an article (also on my website) that seems to raise the question of whether or not some couples are really infertile or perhaps just impatient: Undue IVF pressure put on couples (BBC News) So, if you're considering fertility treatments, maybe you should consider a little longer. The best treatment may be no treatment.
