IVF Treatment for Women Over 40
Women who are over 38 years of age often have very few eggs and respond poorly to conventional ovarian stimulation, and because of lower pregnancy rates, are often just cancelled by IVF clinics for fear that such cases will lower their reportable statistics. Such patients also usually require huge doses of expensive drugs that can add another $6,000 to the already high cost of conventional IVF.
While one option is using donor eggs, many women prefer getting pregnant using their own eggs. The best solution for these patients is the Japanese mini-IVF, using a specialized pure-air environment, along with an absolutely safe and reliable system for embryo freezing.
Success of Dr. Silber’s Procedure
Mini-IVF, first developed by the Kato Ladies Clinic in Japan and then perfected and popularized at St. Luke’s Hospital in St. Louis, is the right approach for women over 40 or women with low ovarian reserve who still want to use their own rather than donor eggs.
The success of this approach depends not only on a novel endocrine stimulation protocol, but also upon a flawless method of embryo freezing such as our vitrification system, and the highest level laboratory air purification system to give the eggs from women over 40 the best possible environment in which to develop.
