  • You honestly shouldnt.
    At your age it is so risky for your baby! And for you too!
    You really should consider adoption. So many other babies need homes!
    It would be safer and give a child in need a loving home.

  • Your best bet is to talk to your doctor. If you want to know if you can still get pregnant they can do a fertality test to see if you can. But as women get older there are alot more risks when getting pregnant. Im not sure if there is a certin age that they recomend not to conceve. But it would be best for you to talk to your doctor about it.

  • Get to a top-ranked clinic that deals with more women with advanced maternal age. Be prepared to hear donor egg or adoption speeches. If you are set on using your own eggs, be ready for it to be a bit harder. Get a full workup to know what your FSH level is, along with other baseline hormone levels. Track your cycle, get ultrasounds to see what's going on in there. Read up, get informed, and brace your emotions. It can be a very frustrating road. I wish you luck!

  • I agree w/ halfpint. Being informed before you talk to your doctor will help you know what questions you need to ask and also help you be prepared for any unpleasant answers. Good luck!
