The risks and outcome of pregnancy in an advanced maternal age in oocyte donation cycles.

Abstract

The maternal age at the first and repeated deliveries constantly rises in developed countries due to current social trends that favor values of personal achievements upon procreation. Assisted reproduction technologies and especially the availability of oocyte donation programs extend the age of fecundity to the fifth and sixth decades of life. The ability to conceive and deliver at such age raises serious medical, moral, social and legal concerns regarding the health and welfare of the mother and child will be presented and discussed here.
