    The one big barrier to getting pregnant at 44 is said to be egg quality. It is well documented that egg quality declines with age. You only need to compare the statistics between someone who has done IVF in their 40s and someone who has done it in their 20s to see the difference in the number and quality of eggs produced. And for this reason it is important to do as much as we can to improve egg quality. I also know of a number of ladies who have got pregnant at 44 and of course a number of ladies that have been trying for quite a while and are still not pregnant. What I would say is, it is possible. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself for it to work straight away. By all means do all that you can to maximize your chances from the beginning. In particular find out exactly when you are ovulating. But try not to obsess every month over whether it has worked or not. I wish you all the best of luck and lots of baby dust.

    For me there are no chances of getting pregnant at the age of 43.
    Now at the age of 43 i am married again to someone else and we want a baby of our own.
    I know at this age it is quite difficult to have a baby off my own womb.
    Keeping in mind all the complications regarding pregnancy now i think i should go for some other option to have children.
    From my last marriage i had many complications regarding pregnancy.
    I don’t have any other options left so far so surrogacy is the only solution to my problems i guess.
    He agreed to my proposal so i started looking for clinics with good surrogacy records.
    I founded many clinics regarding surrogacy and i picked up the few clinics too for further discussion with them.
    I contacted many clinics and told them every aspect of our complications.
    From their satisfied answers i guess some clinics are the best solution for having a baby.
    So i suggest that you people should also do your own research regarding surrogacy and should contact different clinics for further details.
    Like i was facing miscarriages every time i conceived.
    But i’m worried about many other aspects like my behaviour towards the baby after knowing everything.
    Like when the baby grows up what i should tell him/her.
    So i persuaded my husband to go for surrogacy to have our own children.
    If someone is raising a baby from surrogacy method please share your experience with us so we can learn something from your experiences.

    Hey Trisha, your post entails lots information for people who are experiencing infertility over the 40. honestly, I am one of those, struggling for nearly nine years. But have pursued surrogacy. I know keeping calm dent work in some cases. Countless times felt like a failure, guilty being infertile and what not. Yeah, disparity nature does hit hard. My friend conceived at the age of 45 and naturally. Whereas, I failed several times. Done three cycles of IVF, IUI, which failed miserably. Also, had three CP’s. After trying for years, now I am anticipating for my surrogate to fall pregnant.I would say, giving up doesn’t do any good. There is time for everything. There is nothing definite resolution for everyone. One won’t knows it unless tried.

    I feel like I am reading a post written by me. I mean woman you think exactly like me. I have been telling the same to people for so long. Egg quality does fall with age. Though getting pregnant depends on you particularly. Stressfree life is the key. You are also right when you mentioned about ovulation. Tracking it is very essential. It increases your chance of getting pregnant. I am a live example of this. I am 46 right now. Though I had to go for IVF initially. That cycle failed due to stress. Then I started staying calm and relaxed. Book! I got pregnant naturally. Ladies, there is still hope.

    Hi. How are you? This post was really informative. This is exactly the reason why I’m thinking to have another baby now. I don’t want to wait and decrease my chances. I cant get pregnant myself anyway. I had my first child through surrogacy and that is what I’m going to go for when I have my second baby. My eggs are fully functional and worked great the last time. This let me have my son through gestational surrogacy a year ago. I was confused about the fact that it could be too early for me to have my second baby since my first born is only 9 months old. But I don’t want my eggs to stop working. So, I think I’m going to go for it now. Thank you for this post. I’m more satisfied with my decision now. Need prayers.

    Hey dear, you are right. You explained useful information in easy way. Lots of ladies who are in their 40’s are trying to conceive. But they lose hope when they fail again and again. Its just depends on internal hormones and health structure. That some ladies got pregnant in 40’s while others do not. One of my friend also got pregnant while she was of 43. In my case, although I am 33 years old. But can’t get pregnant due to heart disease. That is why I am thinking of surrogacy option. Many ladies switch towards surrogacy when they fail in TTC. And I think it is good that they chose other option as well. Good for them as well as their immediate family members too. I would just say that in any circumstances, never lose hope. Rather find alternative ways to achieve success.

    Age really plays an important factor while trying to conceive. It’s not easy. We all need to have patience during the time. But it gets so tough for so many. I see quite a few of my friend struggling too. Age isn’t the problem for them though. I don’t know what is. I wish there weren’t these many complications. I had cancerous polyps personally. Now I am uterus-less. I then went with surrogacy to get my little one. It’s been a great experience for me. I just wish still there weren’t any complications in the first place.

    Hey! Great post!
    You are absolutely right. Age is one of the factors that is supposed to be a hurdle in eggs quality and conceiving eventually.
    I also find such women who conceived at age of 44.
    It is just matter of circumstances. I have even come across to women who are just 23 and have a great quality of eggs but every time they ended up of MC.
    Either IVF or IUI works as a LIT in all these situations.
    so many individuals conceived just because of such great procedures.
    Though there was no luck for me in these. but yes as I said there are circumstances some are good and some are worst,
    You just have to stay hopeful.
    There might be some alternative available if you haven’t found your luck in between IUI or IVF.
    Prayers for each one who is infertile.

    Getting pregnant after 40 is possible without fertility treatment. But your chances of having trouble conceiving are higher.
    There’s no denying your odds of getting pregnant are far lower now than they were just a few years ago. After 45, experts say. It’s almost impossible to get pregnant using your own eggs. At the same time, many 40-plus women do get pregnant. Some using fertility treatments and some not. And there may be benefits to waiting to have children. For both you and your child. Pregnancy at any age has advantages and disadvantages. Miscarriage rates begin to skyrocket in your 40s as well. At 40, the rate is 34 percent, and it rises to 53 percent by age 45. Your risk of pregnancy complications, such as high blood pressure and gestational diabetes. Increases after 35 and continues to rise in your 40s.The odds of genetic problems also jump as you get older. At 40, your chance of conceiving a child with Down syndrome is one in 100. At 45 it’s one in 30.

    hey! didn’t know there would be similar cases often but reading your post made me realize that we women really need to consider taking good diet and a good intake of milk. having seen one of the experience as such of my friend. indeed the egg quality of hers fell and age is a great factor to it. but miracles do happen. and no one is same. so it’s not necessary that if somebody was unable to conceive due to age factor then the same will be happening to you too necessarily. I am sure and I hope highly that you will be successful and your wish of having a cute baby will come true soon for sure. research and do everything to make your egg quality improve and stay stress-free. whats yours will never be away from you. much love.

    Age truly plays a vital factor while TTC. It is difficult to conceive at an older age. All we can do is to show tolerance and courage. It’s really disappointing and heartbreaking. I saw many of my friends struggling as well. Age isn’t the issue for them. I don’t know what the reason behind this. I just wish that everyone could conceive naturally. I had problems with the uterus. Currently, I am uterus-less. I then opted surrogacy to have my own. It’s been a great experience for me. Thanks to the clinic where I had treatment. I will also suggest surrogacy to the aspirants.

    Hey there Trisha. How are you doing? I hope its all great. I am really happy to see this post. It’s really inspiring and amazing. I hope more people see it. Very informative too. Yes, age is a big factor. However, i6ts better to have a strong physical body too. If you are mentally and physically strong you can have a baby. I wish everyone good luck in their the forties. It will be hard but you’ll get it. I hope to hear more good news from different people. Take care. Lots of love and support. Prayers too.

    As a woman gets older, there are fewer chances of conception. I know it is hard for them. It is necessary to have babies in their 30’s. After 35 there are lower chances. My sister had experienced it. She wanted babies when she was 39. She wanted her 3rd baby. Her husband was agreed to have one more. So they wanted to expand their family. For this they went o fertility clinic for treatment. The medication didn’t worked. So in the end she decided to go for surrogacy. She went to a clinic in Europe. They chose that clinic and now they have a baby. I am so happy that she chose it.

    As a lady gets older, there are fewer chances to get pregnant. I know it is hard for them. It is important to have babies before you reach the age of 30. My friend had encountered it. She needed infants when she was 35. She needed her first baby. Her better half was consented to have one badly. So they needed to grow their family. For this they for treatment. The medicine didn’t worked. So at last she chose to go for surrogacy. She went to a center in Europe. They picked that center and now they have a child. I am happy to the point that she picked it. She is happy with her family.
