What are the treatment options for women over 45?

The chances for pregnancy using your own eggs, when over 45, are so low that we do not believe it is in your best interest to proceed with treatment, however, you may be an ideal candidate for oocyte donation. Based on years of research on age and fertility, it is very clear that the impact of age is on the oocyte (egg) and not so much on the uterus. Your ability to carry a pregnancy is unaffected by age up to perhaps the late 40s and early 50s. Of course we need to evaluate your uterine response and more importantly to assure pregnancy is safe for you and your baby. Testing about your cardiovascular system and your general health conditions are integral part of the preparation prior to IVF donor oocyte. Oocyte donation allows women over the age of 45 to experience the entire process of pregnancy, the bonding that occurs with pregnancy, the ability to breast feed and the potential to share the pregnancy with your partner.

What other's say about us...

Dear Dr. Lee

Just wanted to drop you a note to say "Thank You" for all you did to help us get pregnant back in November. On July 3 we had the most beautiful baby boy. He was 7 weeks early - weighing only 4 pounds 15 ounces - but gorgous anyway!! Seven and a half weeks later, he weighs over 8 pounds and is doing great! We know how much you sacrifice to help people have a family - so we just wanted to show our appreciation! Believe us when we say we really cant thank you enough for this most precious gift you helped us create! May you have as much happiness in your life that you have given us and so many others!

With Our Deepest Gratitude.
