Intended Mother Age and Ukrainian Surrogacy: After 35 Years of Age Fertility Decreases Every Month

There is generally not much of a drop-off in a woman’s ability to have a baby after IVF between the ages of 26 and 35. After 35, this starts to fall quite dramatically, so every month counts.

During the lockdown, across all ages of women, the two months with no access to hospitals for IVF treatment meant that women in the UK had a 0.5% lower chance of giving birth, compared to their usual chances. For instance, a woman who is aged 41-42 has a 12% chance of giving birth at her age.
