IVF can trim down birth deficiency in middle-aged woman: Study

Infertility is one of the major issues found among moderately aged ladies. With the growing age, the inefficiency of producing a baby found in most women that mostly arise because of certain hormonal lopsided characteristics and physical differences. Despite the fact that reports have expressed barrenness is discovered significantly in men accomplices, the female side even is observed to be equally responsible. As indicated by various statistics, 7 out of 10 couples have problems in conceiving baby. But thanks to the advancement of reproductive technology which has made the infertile couple easily get a baby through assisted reproduction techniques.

A recently conducted study has found that Babies destined to middle-aged women of 40 and above with the help of assisted reproduction technologies probably going to have fewer congenital disabilities in comparison to those who conceive the babies naturally at the same age. It means the women who born children at the age of 40 and above with multiplication birth technology are likely to face less delivery issue than the naturally expectant mothers. This hypothesis is converse to the great belief that more severe risks of birth imperfections after assisted birth is due to the regular use of these services by aged ladies.

As said by the lead author of the study, Michael Davies, Professor at Robinson Research Institute, University of Adelaide in Australia, there is something notable found in the women of the age of 40 and over who has taken the help of assisted reproduction for conceiving babies, which the naturally expecting women of the same age lacks. Taking the statement further, he said that, the ladies who adopted IVF (In Vitro Fertility) technology to conceive baby are found with fewer congenital disabilities in comparison to the normal pregnant women.

The research also stated that the risks of congenital disabilities are more likely to be found among younger women who are expecting their babies through a natural process. The investigators suppose this could direct to the existence of more positive points in IVF (in vitro fertilization) concerning the pregnancies in middle-aged and older women. IVF technology seems to have more optimistic points to biological processing for birth among older women, as said by the researchers.

    Any age is too old when you consider there’s nearly 8 billion of us on the planet. I mean who can tell for sure when it is a right time. When people are young and have to work? Or when they are free to dedicate ourselves to children? Personally I can`t understand why many clinics refuse to impregnate women who are over 50 years old. It is so wonderful that modern technologies allow them to become happy. Due to IVF I gave birth to my child when I was 52.I did it in Ukraine and was completely satisfied. I was lucky to meet real professionals of reproductive medicine. By the way, women of any age have a chance to be fertilized there. And also the price is smaller; however the quality of work is very good. You just have to be healthy enough to bear and give birth to the baby. My son is 6 years now. I devote all my free time to him. After his birth I feel myself younger and strong enough. Of course, everything is individually. But to my opinion, if woman feels strong and confident she can do everything she want or need.

    I totally disagree. To me, you are too old when you are postmenopausal. If you are afraid your husband will abandon you 1) Show him the freaking door and 2) He would have done so before you hit your 60s. They did not want to adopt as they wanted their own child then turn around and give birth to a baby that has no biological relation to them at all. That is pretty screwed up. Plus once the body changes and ends our fertility due to the normal process of age, it is dangerous and unnatural to peruse child-baring from fertility treatments. I think if a woman is young and in natural child-baring years, that’s one thing. But nature ends for us at a point for a reason. If we could continue to have babies into our 70’s many women would continue to be nothing more than baby factories their entire lives. This isn’t even to mention what this article ignores – the proven correlation of IVF to known birth defects such as Down’s Syndrome etc. There should be enormous social pressure on women and men to not have any children as they cannot take care of the people they have.
