At the age of 49 your only option to conceive is through egg donation. This is a very successful treatment and the success rates are over 40% per cycle. In the UK most clinics will only treat patients up to the age of 50 so if you are seriously considering treatment you should see a Fertility Doctor as soon as possible.
