Who says you're too old?

"It's not hard to understand the fears surrounding conception. Yes, the statistics show that a woman's fertility declines as she ages, but you must keep in mind that these numbers may have nothing to do with you. In fact, over the last 20 years, births to women over age 40 have increased by 50%.... And in 1991, 92,000 women in the U.S. over age 40 had babies. That number continues to rise. A lot of forty-something women don't realize how fertile they are, which may account for the fact that they are second only to women ages 18-25 in frequency of abortions. Who says your eggs are too old? Furthermore, you should know that the vast majority of babies born to women in their forties are healthy. And in healthy women, the vast majority of pregnancies are completed without a hitch."

During the third month of taking Fertility Blend, I knew there was something more substantial about my ovulation. I had been keeping close track of my ovulation for almost three years and was very aware of the difference with Fertility Blend. Well, we gave it a try and, wouldn't you know, we became pregnant! I have just completed my first trimester of pregnancy and I will be 45 when the baby is born.

Once we have completed all of the genetic tests, we will be telling everyone our wonderful news and, of course, telling them about Fertility Blend. I have a lot of friends who will want to know about your formula. Thank you for giving us the chance!

Follow-up: The Genetics testing is normal and we are expecting a boy. I am so lucky to have found your product! I would love to share my experience.


Just wanted to send a note that I am happy with the results of taking Fertility Blend. I was experiencing lowered levels of progesterone due to my age. We had been trying to conceive our second child for almost a year. We had a son who was born when I was 38. After being on Fertility Blend for 2 months, I am currently 43 and am now 3 months pregnant. Our child is due in Feb. 2003. Thank you, Jennifer, NC


A New Mom at 50 - "I didn't know women your age could have babies," the young woman blurted out. We were both looking at crib quilts at a church bazaar, and she had asked me who was going to have a baby. "I am," I replied, thinking she couldn't miss my pregnant belly, swollen large in the eighth month.

Yes, admittedly my hair was quite grey for my 49 years, but I didn't feel that old. This baby was a complete surprise. I'd tried to have another baby after my son was born when I was 41, but after four miscarriages I finally gave up hope that I would have another child. My periods stopped abruptly when I moved to the East Coast to take a new teaching job, and I accepted the fact that I had started menopause.


I "qualify" as a 49 year old with 4 [children] -- my youngest is 3.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
