Answered by South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine - Pembroke Pines

There is such a thing as mini-IVF. It involves using a combination of fertility pills and fertility injections to stimulate the ovaries for an IVF cycle. The yield of eggs is usually lower than the yield in a full injectable gonadotropin cycle. It would not really matter whether you do a regular IVF or a mini-IVF cycle, pregnancy success at age 45 using your own eggs is dismal. Success runs only 1-2% in the best IVF centers. Most patients interested in IVF at age 45 should strongly consider using donor eggs which yields a success rate in the 70-80% range.

Available in the NY area but not generally not recommended due to such low success rates. Donor egg would be best option.

IVF is possible at age 45 put the chance of pregnancy success using own eggs is less than 5%. Most IVF experts would recommend IVF with donor eggs and your chance of success would be close to 50%.
