Please note that all the answers we give are on a generic basis only, as we cannot provide more in-depth answers without access to your medical history. If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

We would not recommend using your own eggs as we do not have any live birth in patients over the age of 44. The best chance of success is to use donor eggs.
