Is 45 too old to have a baby ?

Are you having regular periods?

It's worth a go...

It's not too old to try but it might be too old to be successful.

Maybe too old, maybe not.

What are your health circumstances? Is your cycle still regular? Are you ready to deal with the increased risks that older motherhood involves?

I had a DC just before I turned 43, good friend had one at 44 1/2 and is trying for a sibling at 48 although she accepts this is very unlikely we both had unassisted conceptions but I think by mid 40's, realistically, chances are dropping by the month.

Too old in what sense? Physically we can't diagnose that over the Internet - speak to a doctor? Emotionally - as above - expect it to be tough but tough in a different way to being a mum at 18 or 20. Socially - no one else's business, there are plenty of older muns around but it's still bit of a social issue. .... Anything else worrying you op?
