Women over 40 use DE less than 5% of the time

Response to: Newest data from CDC on birth rates - 2003 data

So, you are saying less than 5% of births to over 40 are DE [donor egg].

Live births to women 40-44 - 101,005
Live births to women 45-49 - 5522
Live births to women 50-54 - 323

(106,850 live births to women over 40)

For donor egg cycles, from the chart it shows that 90% of donor egg cycles are utilized by women over 40

For Fresh DE cycles: 4557 live births
For FET DE cycles: 1212 live births

(5769, less 10% is about 5200)

That still means that women over 40 only use DE less than 5% of the time. DE is not the major means of success, all other account for 95% of the methods for success.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
