What is the relation between my age and my chances of getting pregnant using IVF (Invitro fertilisation)?
Most fertility patients are aware of the term "biological clock". Women are born with all their eggs and with each month passing, some of these eggs are used up. A woman's reproductive potential declines, especially as she approaches her fourth decade of life. The total eggs that are left in a woman's body is called her "ovarian reserve".
Because women in our society are marrying later, and consequently attempting pregnancy later in life, evaluation of ovarian reserve is critical to understanding a patient's reproductive potential. Unfortunately, there is no perfect test and it is difficult to answer with certainty the question that is often asked by anxious patients. How much time do my ovaries have left? And; How long can I wait to have a baby?
Can I get pregnant using IVF(Invitro fertilisation) even if I am in my forties?
A little assistance is needed if you are in your fourth decade of life but definitely, a pregnancy can happen. The assistance might be in the form of IUI(Intrauterine Insemination) or IVF (Invitro fertilisation)/ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection).
How to get pregnant using IVF (IN vitro fertilisation)if I have gone through menopause?
If you are postmenopausal, it means that you have finished with your supply of eggs.
