Pregnancy after 40

The chances of a successful pregnancy in your 40’s declines rapidly with each passing year and at the age of 44 the national success rate of IVF is only around 3-5%.  At the ARGC, however, we have consistently achieved higher success rates in the over 40’s age group, averaging twice the national success rates on more than one occasion.

The ovarian reserve of each patient is carefully assessed at ARGC prior to the treatment to determine the best treatment option. Careful monitoring during your cycle allows the best quality eggs to be retrieved.  Attention to detail and specialist treatment to optimise implantation and pregnancy support are keys to your success.

As the rate of miscarriage is likely to increase with advanced maternal age, you may wish to consider genetic screening of your embryos which can be discussed during your consultation.
