We have gone through times when reproductive technologies were rare and unusual for most women in the world. Infertility was a curse in the past, but not today. Nowadays IVF is a normal way to become parents and forget about the infertility diagnosis and for everyone.
It’s no secret that the odds of getting pregnant at 40 are much lower than at twenty and thirty. The period between the ages of 30 and 40 is a golden time when couples do their best trying to get pregnant. One might think that the twentieth is the best time, but there is a huge amount of infertile couples at a very young age, struggling to the last and slowly moving towards 35 and over to no avail. They understand that they have lost so many years, hoping for a natural pregnancy. The advice is simple: if there are two years of active planning and no success, it is recommended to learn more about the IVF process, IVF costs and do it as soon as possible.
Many women avoid IVF. It is difficult for them to accept that they cannot conceive naturally and they try and try until they are 40. In vitro fertilization after age 40 offers a small chance of pregnancy on one’s eggs if hormones and ovarian reserve allow. A woman can become a mother and finally achieve her goal, but not all women after 40 have good hormone levels and especially the AMH hormone. A woman wonders “do I need an egg donor”? Someone needs time to accept it, someone considers this option a good way to become a mother. Egg quality is far from ideal at this age and a baby’s health is very important. It is worth knowing that stimulation with hormones for in vitro fertilization has several risks for a woman’s health. Stimulation hormones activate all growth processes in a woman’s body, not just in the ovaries. Numerous stimuli can significantly harm your health. It is usually recommended to undergo IVF with an egg donor because the chances of pregnancy with donor eggs after 40 increase significantly and you save your health by being an active and healthy mother to your baby!
Some women in their forties are hoping for a natural pregnancy, which is very risky, because they waste very precious time. The same thing I can say about in vitro fertilization on eggs after the age of 40. However, if your antimuler hormone is high and you still have eggs in your ovaries, it is worth trying IVF once and then proceeding with egg donation. The latest investigations show that you will pass genetic material to your child with blood if you use an egg donor for the fertilization procedure. Egg donation success over 40 is around 76%, which is wonderful and inspiring!
The next question is the cost of IVF and the cost of the egg donor. Not all couples can afford the cost of IVF or the cost of egg donation. The price of egg donation in Europe, the UK and the US is very high and many couples are considering IVF abroad. The cheapest country for IVF is Ukraine. The price may also be unrealistic, but after proper investigation, it is clear that the service is on the same level as in the United States and Europe and in some ways even better. If you can find from 5000 Euros for IVF, you might be a lucky person. An unlimited egg donation package with all inclusive could cost anywhere from 12000-14000 Euro in Ukraine with a guarantee of success! Can you find a great price in the US or Europe? A guarantee you, it is not possible!
The success of IVF is the result of many factors, such as an experienced fertility specialist, a highly educated embryology team, a young and healthy egg donor (if you need it), a good egg donation clinic and still a good country to travel to.
