Dear "Madam",

I think you have fairly summarized what we all know to be true about the potential of ART to help women in the later reproductive ages. Having said that I think we should all respect Ms. Tiegs privacy, such as it can be, and wish her and her husband and surrogate a safe and healthy pregnancy with a good outcome for all.

: Cheryl Tiegs has been in the media claiming that at age 52 her own eggs were fertilized with her husband's sperm and now a surrogate is carrying her twins. She does not say if she used FET but that she had been ttc for a year, I guess starting at age 50, and now twins are expected. I've never heard of anyone at 52 using their own eggs for ivf and resulting in a pregnancy. I've never heard of a dr. who would even attempt IVF at age 52 with someone's own eggs. I would imagine such a doctor would have women dropping out of parachutes to be treated.
: Has an IVF pregnancy every been acheived using 52 year old eggs?
: We've all heard about the 54 year old grandma with triplets but she had eight kids before, this is different.
: Thanks for all responses.

: Madam
