I am 43, my husband is 45. We haven't yet started fertility treatments. However, I will see my doctor on Friday. We will discuss it then. Thanks for the kind support. karen

Thanks Sandy. I am amazed at the number of women who, like me, are ttc over 40. Somehow there is comfort in numbers.

I'm not a doctor, but I wouldn't take anything until I got a blood test. I have a niece that was trying to get pg, (she's in her late 20's but has the reproductive system of a woman in her 50's), anyway, she had a refill for chlomid and decided she didn't want the pressure of doctor appts. and being poked and proded.......she began the chlomid on her own and got pg! I would definately get a blood test done if you haven't already. Best of Luck for you.......I will be thinking positive thoughts for you and please let us know how things go for you. Kathy S.

I would NOT take the meds to start AF BEFORE getting a quantitive blood test!!! When they do the blood test have them measure HCG, LH, FSH, E2 and progesterone. The test your doctor gave you is NOT definitive!!! Please post and let me know what you do....

Hope everything turns out the way you want.... BTW I got pg when I was almost 46 so it certainly CAN happen!!!
