Is it possible to have healthy eggs at 50?

I had never conceived. My specialists told me that i had high levels of prolectin which prevented me to get pregnant. I have tried a few IVFs but no success. My uterus does not embed the embryo. Now i am thinking of straight surrogacy. What are my chances of producing healthy eggs through egg recovery?

Yes, it is possible for a woman in her 50s to produce healthy eggs.

I think you will find this article interesting (opens a pdf file): www.acudenver.com/articles/ArticlesRL1.pdf.

Most of the medical literature discusses the aging ovum between ages 40-45, and that women's follicles at more advanced ages are not receptive to hormonal stimulation (for egg donation, for example). However, the literature also points out that these are averages; women (on average) are perimenopausal or in menopause around age 50; others it is around age 60. You can review statistics and what is most likely, but what is more important: talk with your doctor about your specific health, the health of your ovum, and how your body responds to necessary treatments to stimulate your follicles and produce healthy eggs.

Good luck, and let us know what your doctor says about your specific situation!
