If you are diagnosed with infertility, then IVF is the best option to achieve parenthood. For those who do not know about what is IVF, let us explain the process first.
IVF stands for In Vitro Fertilization; it is a procedure to have babies when you are diagnosed with infertility.
In this process, female eggs and male sperm’s fertilisation takes place in a special lab, under the care of an IVF specialist. After the embryo development in the lab, it is inserted using injection into the woman’s uterus.
Some of the reasons why you should consider going for an IVF procedure regardless of age:
Now that you know the benefits IVF procedure can give you. Let us move on to the actual question.
Age is a significant factor for IVF treatment. Generally, women in their 20s and 30s experience a higher rate of success for IVF implantation.
IVF treatment grants the ability of pregnancy for you in menopause as well. However, the rate of success declines after mid-thirties.
The eggs inside your ovaries also undergo a similar amount of ageing. The ageing eggs end up losing their capability of fertilisation, diminishing your chances of implantation.
At the age of 30, you have about 12% of the 300,000 eggs which you had when you were born. By the age of 40, only 9000 of them remain.
As soon as you reach the age of menopause (50-55), there are significantly fewer eggs remaining in the ovary, and their viability is questionable.
So it can be concluded as per various surveys that women in their twenties up to mid-thirties experience a higher success rate when it comes to IVF.
In the case of IVF after menopause, there are two possibilities:
In such cases, even though you do not have a genetic link with the child, you have a physical connection through pregnancy and childbirth.
The donor will be younger and healthier, so you can get many viable eggs. Generally, the father of the baby can be your male partner.
Even after the menopause begins, your uterus is still fully capable of carrying out a successful pregnancy. After harvesting of eggs, it is placed into the uterus 3-5 days after fertilisation.
So, even if you are above 50, you do have a high chance of successful IVF pregnancy.
