Hello,

YES, I have had many women with IVF children in their 50's - BUT, you need to find a donor egg - at the age of 52, you no longer have any viable eggs. I hope this helps, take care.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Owen, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago
i would not recommend using your eggs even if viable, but once in menopause you do not have eggs left. Donor is a very good option.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
