I am 38+ and I am scheduled for IVF next month. For some reasons I have had to put off having a child till I was 35. We now regret to have putting off the pregnancy and think that should have thought of it earlier. However, after trying and putting in a lot of effort, 6 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVF cycles with my ovaries and meeting so many infertility professionals, we even ended up using donor eggs but no results, I don’t know what the problem is. I was feeling really positive and excited in my first attempt and now I am depressed and also read elsewhere that chances of success after the age of 36 drops dramatically and now I just feel so scared that it is too late. I have been unable to conceive till now. Have any of you had a successful IVF at 38 or older? I feel I need some reassurance from some ladies that have had positive outcomes at this age or older. Please share your experiences so that I can at least know where I stand. Thanks in advance.
