An older form of IVF has helped women who had given up hope of having their own genetic children become mothers after all.
The women, who were close to menopause, had been told their only chance was to use donor eggs, a method that would have meant their child had someone else’s genes.
Instead, doctors tried a drug-free or low-drug IVF technique, similar to the one used in the earliest days of IVF.
