We've had 45y women become pregnant with their own eggs

Dr. Jaime Vasquez, medical director of The Center for Reproductive Health: "We make a decision based on the function of the cells rather than the chronological age. We've had 45-year-old women become pregnant with their own eggs," Vasquez said.


You won't believe this, but I have a friend whose wife just had twins. She is 54! Of course, my friend (the husband) has never had children so I guess that was the motivation. The babies are beautiful (Just glad they aren't mine!!!)


I have a friend who will have her 50th birthday in March, and have a baby in May. She already has 5 grandchildren, and 1 more on the way. This is #10 (yes, that's 10) for fertility treatments....and she's very happy.


I, on the other hand, got pregnant 4 years ago, at 45. I was in such shock!!


Menopause Online: Until you are firmly in menopause, that is, no periods for one year, you can still get pregnant.

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.
