It is common knowledge that it can be more difficult to become pregnant naturally as a woman ages. However, being over the age of 40 does not mean that a woman is unable to conceive. It is possible to become pregnant after age 40 and to start a family.
For many years, fertility treatments meant large doses of fertility medication in order to push a woman’s reproductive system. Historically, in order to participate in treatments such as IVF, women had to have low FSH levels, be below a certain age and had to be able to produce multiple eggs during a cycle. These requirements meant that women over age 40 and women who were unresponsive to fertility medication were often unable to find fertility centers who were willing to help them.
