Infertility in women is linked to age - the biggest decrease in fertility begins during people aged in their mid-30s. However, if you already have several children, then it could be suggested that age has not dramatically affected your fertility and your chances of becoming pregnant could be good. It is uncommon for ladies over the age of 40 to become pregnant with IVF using their own eggs, so we could possibly suggest using donor eggs.
