Dear Cynthia

At your age it is very unlikely that you will produce eggs of sufficiently good quality to produce normal children and despite the use of a surrogate I would advise that you avoid this type of situation. The risks of chromosomal abnormalities are extremely high at the age approaching 50 and although this can be tested for it is sometimes very difficult to be 100% accurate.
