At Manchester Fertility the age limit for IVF treatment using your own eggs is 44. This is because we have not had a live birth treating patients over the age of 44. However, there are ways that we can help you achieve a pregnancy although this would involve using donor eggs. If you need more information about these services our Patient Advisors would be happy to speak to you.
