WITH IVF, YOU CAN GET PREG­NANT AT ANY AGE

With so many celebri­ties hav­ing ba­bies in their late 40s, there is a be­lief a woman can have fer­til­ity treat­ment at any age with her own eggs to achieve preg­nancy. This un­for­tu­nately is not the case. The CDC in the United States has ex­tremely re­li­able data on suc­cess rates of as­sisted re­pro­duc­tive tech­nol­ogy. The chance of one com­pleted cy­cle pro­duc­ing a live birth is 40-50pc un­der age 35, 20-25pc at age 38-40, and 4-5pc over age 42.
