My BPF was natural, although it ended in a miscarriage so that doesn't totally count. There are lots of women on the Pg over 35 board that conceived naturally... actually a lot in their late 30s / early 40s. There were even some whoopsies on that board too. lol
How many cycles have you been trying? Are you temping or using OPKs to help get the timing right?
I got pregnant on my own at 37 and my daughter is a perfect and healthy 3 year old. Then at 39 I got pregnant on my own but micarried and at 40 I also got pregnant on my own but miscarried. Guess that is when all the help started coming in, at 40 we went to RE. Best of luck. Get going and you may work out!
when i was 37 i got pg on the first try with my son ... totally natural.
am 42 and this pg was sort of, kind of natural in that i didn't take any stimulation drugs, but i did do an ovulation trigger shot and iui (and acupuncture)
of course you can!
my friend was 39 with her first, it took six cycles (but she wasn't temping or using OPK's)
my other girlfriend is turning 40 next month, had years of infertility in her early 30's (endo) after a lap, she got pregnant at 37 and is now having her second at 40 in Sept after only two cycles of trying.
I got pregnant naturally on the first try at 38 and delivered a healthy baby boy at 39. We are trying for #2 but running into a wall. I am now 40, but DH has low motility and some morph issues. We will probably do IVF with ICSI in July.
