No uterus and no ovaries

I'm 48 years old and have been married for seven years now. I have no uterus and no ovaries following an operation to remove them. Is it possible to have IVF and would any infertility treatments be good for me? Thank you.

I am sorry but if you have had your uterus and ovaries removed then IVF treatment would not be possible as IVF involves collecting eggs from your ovaries to create embryos with your partner’s sperm and placing these embryos in to the uterus. You could have treatment using an egg donor and creating embryos with your partner sperm. These embryos would need to be transferred into a surrogate mother.
