Upper age limit

I am 47 years old and have not yet started the menopause but I am interested in looking at sperm donation. I’ve looked at your packages which have an upper age of 44 for sperm donation and wondered if this would be extended to slight older ladies? Or would the treatment available to my age group be that of egg and sperm donations.?

The reason we do not offer treatment women with their own eggs over the age of 44 is that we do not have any live births in this age group for IUI or IVF.

The most effective treatment is to use donor eggs.
