Two failed cycles and over 40

I have had two failed cycles - one using my own eggs ICSI and one using donor embryos. I am now 47 ( very fit and healthy). Would you be prepared to treat me?

I am sorry to hear that your previous treatments have failed. Although we have treated women in your age group with their own eggs to date, we have not had any success and would strongly recommend using donor eggs. In women over 40 years old there is a decline in the quality and number of eggs produced which cannot be improved by conventional IVF. I'd advise reading more about our egg sharing programme. Hope that helps.
