Fertility for Over 40s
If you are in your late 30’s or early 40’s and want to have a child, we have the expertise and treatment options to help you conceive.
Successful conception over the age of 40 is still very possible. However, women over 40 have fewer eggs in their ovaries. This means that the number of their eggs, and embryos after fertilisation tend to be reduced.
For 24 years our specialists have successfully treated many women aged 40 and above who wish to have a family, as our consistently excellent success rates show.
You can be assured that we will be completely open and realistic with you about which of our treatments offer you the best chance of success. We will only recommend treatment that suits your needs with complete cost transparency at all times.
Age-related Infertility and Donor Eggs
Age-related infertility is often associated with older maternal age, when the ovaries’ store of eggs is beginning to run out. IVF with Donor Eggs maybe a good option if you have age-related infertility. Egg donors are much younger which increases the chances of pregnancy significantly.
If you decide to use Donor Eggs, your treatment cycles are carefully timed so the donor’s eggs are ready when you are. The donor’s eggs are then fertilised with your partner’s sperm and the resulting embryo(s) transferred into your uterus.
At Bath Fertility we advise caution attempting IVF over 43 years of age because of the low chances of success with your own eggs. Use of donor eggs gives a much more realistic chance of having a baby.
