Dear hopeful
According to the recommendations of the guidelines, women above age45 have a very poor pregnancy outcome and it is not ethically correct to institute treatment. Certainly above the age 50 , no clinic in the world should be treating a patient for her own eggs for invitro fertilization(IVF). The situation is different if donor eggs are being considered.
