anyone have success over 40? I may have an opportunity to do the procedure as part of a clinical trial. From what I have read there does not seem to be a lot of success after 40, not sure if may of the women who undergo this procedure are under 40 or it is because it doesn't help. wanting to hear personal experiences. thank you!

I spoke with a family friend who is an RE in the US. He was very enthusiastic about Augment and suggested the clinics Create and CART in Toronto. I did a consultation to see if I would be a candidate for Augment, but found out there is a strict cutoff age of 42, as there has been limited success over 40. From what I understand, younger women whose embryos do not develop well have been helped the most. Augment has already been approved in Canada, but OvaPrime is another treatment which is only in clinical trials. I do not know the specifics for qualification, but it could be something to research and be on the list for evaluation.
Wishing everyone a happy new year and the granting of our deepest wishes for a baby in 2017!
