Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Have you reached or ended menopause yet?

Having a child naturally at your age is not impossible but is virtually unheard of, except in rare cases that usually create headlines so having a child the old-fashioned way is likely not going to happen.

You can try to have IVF (using someone else's egg/egg donor) but many clinics have a cut-off age for women they will work with and most will not work with a woman of your age. You can certainly make enquiries though!

Your other options are adoption or having a surrogate that can use your partner's sperm. Again, your age will be very much against you, in both circumstances and it depends where you live. Long term fostering may work for you.

Good luck with whatever you both decide!
