How difficult is it to achieve successful donor artificial insemination in women in their 40s?

By Andrea Rodrigo B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/08/2022

After the age of 40, women have a considerable increase in the probability of transmitting chromosomal alterations and therefore a greater probability of miscarriage and of having children with genetic anomalies.

Getting pregnant after the age of 40 through artificial insemination is complicated, but not impossible. However, clinics generally do not perform the treatment after 37 years of age due to the low probability of success.
