Prego naturally?

I was just wondering if anyone has got pregnant at 47 or above naturally? Is it really a miracle, my doctor says it’s 1% chance maybe lower with your own eggs. I am done with all these meds and injections and blood work etc..... it’s so stressful the whole IVF journey, I wonder how anyone can be so calm and relaxed doing this procedure.....😪

Also getting pregnant at an older age with your own eggs have a higher risk of birth defects? Is this also true???

Sad and disappointed 😪

Unfortunately as we get older our chances of natural pregnancy hugely declines....Im sure the Dr would have given you the correct stats. The older we get the less chromosomally normal eggs we have so indeed if we do fall pregnant naturally the chances of a successful pregnancy lessens as miscarriage rates are higher due to this and/or birth defects. It is disappointing (Im 40 so older too) but better to know the facts I guess.xx

Thank you! Sending massive hugs and hope you can get your head around it just being your little girl to look after.xx

Hi my dear

There are women got pregnant at 45 and above I wouldn't believe everything just because statistics are not in our favor plus these statistics are based in certain ethnicity and certain amount of number don't forget if you still fertile and you can still produce good quality eggs there is a chance of getting pregnant. Don't give up hope but try IUI at least if ivf is not in your mind it's cheaper and less medicated .
