The HUGE majority of births over 40 are NOT Donor Egg

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, December 08, 2006 | 0 comments

In the US less than 5% are Donor Egg. This is based on the CDC stats --- if you count all DE cycles vs. all deliveries over 40, there is less than a 5% chance that any birth is via DE. The HUGE majority of births over 40 are NOT DE and the same is probably true in the UK.


The 1-5% success rate is for what doctors actually follow -- IVF & IUI cycles ONLY for a certain age + their FSH. They do not report or follow any natural pregnancies over 40, they don't even think about over 40 births for all the women who weren't trying or never sought help and they certainly don't count women who lie about their age and pay cash.


Try Traditional Chinese Medicine with an acupuncturist -- they should be the kind that prescribe herbs for you. I just hooked up with one and I know other women on other threads on this site have tried it and it worked for them. The lady that is helping me got pregnant at 45 with her first baby. She is very hopeful for women my age (42 - soon to be 43 in June) to get pregnant. What TCM teaches is, it all has to do with ENERGY within your body and diet and getting your energy blocks going again. I found out from her my liver is totally blocked.


My mother fell pregnant with my half brother when she was 45 years old. She had no fertility treatment - only treatment I can say she had is that her boyfriend was only 30 years old! They are still married today my mother now being 68 and her last son is now 23 years old and working as an accountant - about to be married.


I was in the hospital for a D & C after a miscarriage and there was a hospital administrator who had had 7 or more miscarriages and then went on to have 2 healthy babies. She was over 40 too. I think it is really a matter of getting that golden egg.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
