The reality is that the chances of falling pregnant naturally decrease as a woman approaches 40 and continues to sharply decline beyond the age of 40. That's not to say it's impossible. Quite the opposite. In fact, Demeter Fertility has great success in the over 40s category in the world based on its highly successful Over 40s Program, a proactive and evidence-based holistic approach to fertility and IVF aimed at maximising your chances of having a baby later in life.
The program focuses on several components:
A Proactive Approach
See a fertility specialist upfront. Time is more critical when you are in your late 30s or 40s. This doesn't mean that you'll be signed up for IVF straight away. It involves creating a plan or a roadmap with your fertility specialist and really take control of your fertility. There are several steps in the fertility journey and the plan you develop with your fertility specialist will help you know when to escalate to the next stage rather than waiting around and hoping, whilst losing precious time.
Comprehensive Investigative Analysis
Demeter Fertility offers a comprehensive patient history analysis and diagnostics testing, in order to identify biological and other factors that may be affecting your chances of falling pregnant.
Diet & Supplements
Demeter Fertility has undertaken extensive research to understand the effects of diet, dietary supplements and environmental toxins on health and reproduction. As part of our holistic approach we recommend a number of supplements and dietary inclusions.
Medical Approach to IVF
The medical approaches to IVF are also a crucial component to the Over 40s program. The types of medications used, dosages required, timing of medications as well as the combination of medications, are all significant factors in achieving optimal results.
Demeter Fertility offers a number of additional services not often available at other clinics including Mild Ovarian Stimulation IVF, Natural IVF, Lipiodol IVF, Plasma Rich Platelet Therapy, Endometrial Receptivity Array Testing, Ultrasound Guided Implantation, Embryo Glue, treatment of Recurrent Implantation Failure and Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy.
