Healthy, still ovulate & want a baby? You can!

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, December 05, 2007 | 0 comments

Question: I am 45 and my partner 46 and both would like to have a baby but would like to know if this age is considered to be too old. We both have children from previous marriages but would like one of our own.

Dr. Answers: If you are healthy, you still ovulate, and want to have a baby... you can. It is true that there is an increased risk of creating a genetically damaged baby at 45 years, but not always. If you want to conceive, you can begin trying.

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.
