As they approach 40, many women start giving up on the concept of motherhood as they think they're too old for the IVF treatment. The dream of motherhood suddenly looks bleak and gloomy. One of foremost reasons for their hesitation is the widely held belief that fertility prowess of women decline substantially after 35 and one is almost unlikely to become a mother.
While it is true that the ideal age to opt for IVF is late 20s and early 30s because the quality of eggs is robust at that time, even women in their late 30s and early 40s can savor the joy of motherhood through IVF. The only flip side is that the success-rate of IVF among women in their late 30s and early 40s is tad lesser than the ones in their late 20s and early 30s. But it is a lot better and wiser to give IVF a go in your late 30s and early 40s than regret not taking the plunge for the rest of your lives. The chances of success might be lesser, or even minuscule in some cases, but they certainly are not non-existent.
There have been plenty of cases when women over 40s have become mothers by dint of IVF.Moreover, the rigors of undergoing the IVF treatment are completely worth for fulfilling the dream of motherhood. For a woman, nothing can match the happiness of being a mother of a child.
They can also look at a brighter side of being mothers at 40 or above. Women in their 40s are more prudent, mature and sensitive than they are in their younger days. Hence the older mothers are more likely to give a well-rounded and holistic upbringing to their children. Another fact of being a mother in 40s is that one is well-settled and established in her professional life and hence more financially secured.
So be it emotionally or financially, women in late 30s and 40s are more secured and mature. Hence chances of them providing wonderful upbringing to their children are quite salutary.
