Age is an important factor in IVF treatment as a woman’s age is directly proportionate to her chances of getting pregnant. The chances of a woman getting pregnant after the age of 40 are less than 5%. The number of eggs produced decreases with a woman's increasing age. It takes a woman longer to conceive after the age of 40. If a woman at such an age is not able to conceive, then she should consult an IVF specialist immediately. The various scientific advancements can help an infertile woman conceive despite the number of eggs in her ovaries.
