slim and none.

It may still be possible - a fertility blood test at the doctors can give you a good indication.

I know of one who is currently working on exactly that. She was in menopause with an FSH of 86. After working with a doc in Jersey, she's actually O'ing again and her FSH is something like 7. So, it's possible. But you need to find someone to work aggressively with you.

Hello Donna! As woman crosses 40 chances of conceiving are very low. But, unless you are infertile due to some major reason there are still chances that you may get lucky. ????
I know a lady who adopted. Another of my friend used medications for the development of healthy eggs. I went for surrogacy because that was the solution for me. Just stay postive. Xoxox

Of course, these are generalizations. "Age and maturity do not always rise proportionally, and some women in their early 40s may be healthier than their 20-something counterparts, thanks to excellent lifestyle habits," says San Francisco-based pregnancy and postpartum psychologist Shoshana Bennett, Ph.D. "Everything depends on the woman's health, energy, personality and perspective on life." While you can't change your age, there are steps you can take to boost your odds of having a happy and healthy experience, no matter how old you are. Here's what you need to know.
