Getting Pregnant After 40
In order to fulfill his goal of treating patients wanting to overcome infertility and have a baby – especially women wanting to get pregnant after 40 – Dr. George Kofinas founded Kofinas Fertility Institute in 1987. For over 30 years, Dr. Kofinas has specialized in helping women over 40 conceive a baby through IVF.
Getting Pregnant After 40 and Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR)
Women over 40 suffer from infertility due to their natural Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR). DOR is the cause of infertility because of:
- A low number of eggs in a woman’s ovaries
- Impaired development – diminished quality – of a woman’s remaining eggs
Dr. George Kofinas will easily diagnose DOR through blood test measuring hormonal levels, specifically:
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – A high FSH level is indicative of DOR
- Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) – A low AMH level is indicative of DOR
IVF After 40
IVF involves stimulating the ovaries to develop multiple egg follicles, retrieving the eggs, and then fertilizing them in a controlled setting laboratory with sperm for the production of embryos. The embryo is allowed to grow into a quality stage before being transferred into the woman’s uterus.
Egg donation today is a highly successful treatment for women over 40 who are unable to become pregnant due to DOR. This remarkable treatment for women suffering from DOR has been used for over 25 years in conjunction with IVF.
