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.

I would strongly advise you to have treatment using donated eggs as the chance of having a live birth at your age using your own eggs, regardless of whether you are ovulating or not, is extremely rare.
