    Yeah I reckon they should just be honest when they use donor eggs in their late forties

    IVF

    During IVF treatment, a woman's eggs are removed directly from her ovaries and are fertilised with her partner's sperm outside her body (in a laboratory). The resulting embryos are then inserted directly into her womb. Given that most ectopic pregnancies occur when a fertilised egg gets stuck in the fallopian tube, you might ask how IVF could possibly increase the chances of ectopic pregnancy, since IVF "bypasses" the fallopian tubes altogether. Fertility specialists believe that ectopic pregnancy may occur if, when the embryos are transferred to the womb, they are placed too high in the womb cavity. The embryos then have a greater chance of "wandering" and implanting themselves in places where they are not supposed to be, such as the fallopian tubes. Embryos could also make their way into the fallopian tubes if they are injected into the womb with too much force. In the past, doctors would block the fallopian tubes during IVF treatment to try and prevent ectopic pregnancy from occurring. This method is no longer used.


    IUI

    IUI treatment involves inserting sperm directly into the womb cavity to help the sperm reach and fertilize a woman\'s egg. This treatment may also increase the risk of a pregnancy developing in the fallopian tubes or elsewhere if the sperm is injected with too much force or is placed too high in the womb cavity.
    What Are The Chances?

    Between 2 and 5 % of IVF treatments result in ectopic pregnancy. If you are undergoing either IVF or IUI treatment and you do get pregnant, keep an eye out for symptoms of ectopic pregnancy. If you believe you are experiencing any of these symptoms, get medical help immediately.
    Thanks@BlondeinBrisvegas - another thing to worry about! I guess they can do an embryo transfer under guided ultrasound so that they place it low and hope it doesn't float up. I'm not sure what my clinic does as I haven't got to do a transfer yet.

    Well that's a tough one because really it's nobody's business. I'm not sure what I'd do in their situation.

    Oh..bull-fruckin-crap her OE at 52!!!😁

    I have read of an Aussie woman who got Preggo at 50 with her OE after trying for years on end with her hubby. I'm sure she did IVF etc too & very,very unexpectedly got up the duff thinking Menopause was the reason she'd missed AF.

    I totally agree it's their own business - I guess it's people who actually say it's natural when it's not is the issue because it's lying - not confirming either way is the better way to go and just let people wonder.

    Well personally I'll be telling people at work this pregnancy was a shock to both of us. I'm not telling anyone at work we were doing IVF and especially not donor eggs. And it's true, it WAS a shock - because it's twins. Also I'll be mentioning that once my antibodies were treated I was able to fall pregnant, which is why it happened now. No actual, outright lies. But then again, it's none of their business. When I finally announce its twins, I'll just be telling everyone we shouldn't have done the deed twice in one night lol.

    All my transfers bar 1 were unguided Luv. I did a guided on Cycle 2 or 3 only because I asked for it as I was thinking that might have been the problem. Sh*tty embryo's were the problem.

    Anyhoo...going in unguided doesn't mean the FS is transferring "blind". They measure how far the catheter needs to go to get it to the right spot.

    I can understand why women feel more confident having a guided transfer though. Pls try not to worry about an ectopic. The risk isn't that much higher than a natural conception Luv.

    Agree!!! I think the child/children have the right to their own privacy & should be the one to tell others outside their family/close friends about their donor whatever conception if they choose.
