Getting pregnant after 40 is possible for many women
The team at Ovation Donor Services knows that getting pregnant after 40 is not always easy, but it is possible. Our expert staff supports many hopeful mothers of advanced maternal age in achieving pregnancy after 40, by using a combination of collaborative medicine, individualized care, and in many cases, high-quality donor eggs.
Why getting pregnant after 40 can be challenging
Many factors affect pregnancy after 40.
- Decreased egg quality and quantity. A woman’s egg quality and quantity begin to decline in her 30s, and significantly drop after age 37. When a woman reaches 40, she has less than a 5% chance of conceiving each cycle.
- Chromosomal abnormalities. Another reason getting pregnant after 40 can be a struggle is that there is a higher chance that the woman’s eggs will have chromosomal abnormalities. This may result in aneuploid embryos, which have too many or too few chromosomes. Aneuploid embryos rarely result in a pregnancy or can lead to a miscarriage.
Ovation Donor Services specialists can help hopeful parents discover why they’re having trouble getting pregnant after 40, and help them move past their barriers to parenthood.
Egg donation can help
While some hopeful mothers over the age of 40 can develop a pregnancy with the support of IVF or other fertility treatments, egg donation often offers the highest rate of success. At Ovation Donor Services, we provide a leading-edge egg donor program designed to give hopeful parents the best chance of taking home a healthy baby.
Getting pregnant after 40 can be much easier with the help of our high-quality donor eggs. The women in our extensive egg donor database have been carefully screened to ensure that only the best candidates become donors. All donors go through comprehensive medical, legal and psychological counseling, in addition to thorough screening for sexually transmitted diseases and genetic, psychological and physical health abnormalities.
At Ovation, we understand the struggles of infertility and pride ourselves on offering customized and compassionate care to every hopeful parent we have the privilege of supporting.
