Oldest woman ever to conceive with own eggs delivers after IVF at CHR

Posted on Oct 11, 2017

CHR is pleased to report that what, likely, represents the oldest woman ever to have conceived with IVF with use of her own eggs, during September delivered a healthy baby girl, after undergoing IVF at CHR. At time of her embryo transfer in 2016, the mother was 47 years and 10 months old.

CHR in 2016 also established an IVF pregnancy in an even slightly older woman (she was 2 weeks short of age 48 at time of embryo transfer); but this patient unfortunately miscarried after fetal heart.

Because both of these cases are in detail reported in a submitted paper to a medical journal, we currently are not permitted to disclose further details. They will be forthcoming after publication of the paper.

This is a part of the October 2017 VOICE.
