IVF treatment for over 50s

I am a healthy 51 year old - have not had a period for two years. Due to a huge tragic family issue I, (and my husband of 30 years) would love another child (or twins) - sounds awful, money no object - is my only option fostering and/or adoption or is there any hope that I can have another baby/babies using IVF? Eagerly awaiting your reply.

I am sorry to hear of your sad situation but we do not treat women over the age of 50. You will probably find that all clinics in the UK have the same rule.
