Quote: Around half of all pregnancies in women over 40 end in miscarriage.

Quote: Patients over 40 may have a miscarriage rate as high as 50%.
Miscarriage rates for 40-year-old women are about twice that for 20-year-old women.

Quote: Generally, the rate of infertility in women over 40 is 30% greater than in younger women, while the miscarriage rate in women over 40 is about 50% using ART

WAIT! Here is hope!

I was just looking on the BFP Over 40 [Big Fat Positive on a pregnancy test] post on Fertility Friends website and thought the following numbers might be helpful:

May - 28 BFP - 13 losses
June - 7 BFP - 2 losses
July - 13 BFP - 7 losses
August - 12 BFP - 7 losses
Sept - 15 BFP - 7 losses
October 21 BFP - 6 losses
November 13 BFP - 3 losses

Total: 109 positive pregnancy tests within 7 months, with 45 losses

So the ratio is just over 60% success! 
And these are women who have struggled to get pregnant, so they often have a higher risk. 
The average 40-year-old woman will have a much higher success rate!

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
