Froze embryos 3 years ago, now age 43.

My husband and I had 2 embryos frozen 3 years ago. It was before we were married and we had only been going out with each other about 18 months. We are now considering pregnancy. I'm 43, my husband is 41. What is best? Should we use our frozen embryos or try to conceive naturally?
