DP was 42 1/2 when we had our last. It weems now as she approaches 45 conception is still very viable for her naturally. She has had the needle as she does not want anymore (I dont mind if she does but it is her body)
I think there are lots of issues an a blanket ruling does not seem fair

What about men over the age of 40?? There's plenty of evidence showing sperm also deteriorates over the age of 35-40.
I think it's so wrong. If a woman can and does get pregnant, then clearly she is fertile! If she can't get pregnant, then why the need to ban it?
My mind boggles at the 'attitudes' in our society regarding fertility - and it always cones down to the woman of course. People who do IVF really want a child, that's surely a good start to being a decent parent!
There is no logic to such a notion, it's just another example of people wanting to control women's fertility! Grrrr

I know this is a difficult and a emotional question? It's not directed at you just a general question but your post got me thinking.
If adoption was made more accessible in australia do you think people who are undergoing ivf for years would consider it as an option? Im not in any way saying that anyone is less deserving to have their own biological child. I'm just wondering from a financial and emotional side of things I guess? (not sure if emotional is the right word - im tired). I know it's not the same, and I'll never know or fully understand what people with fertility issues will and do go thorugh emotionally and mentally, but seeing my partner (not his bio dad) with DS and the love they have for each other is just amazing and heart warming and makes me know that Love & bonding isn't blood bound. If loosening the laws on adoption helped couples/families to feel complete, as everyone should be able to feel without the financial burden that ivf is, it would be great. I'd do it in a heart beat if I was unable to convince again (thats just how I feel).
I really hope I havent hurt or offenced anyone in any way in my post. I'm not good at putting my thought into words so if I have I'm sorry!

If we had no kids? I would go IVF, then donor eggs, then adoption.
