Doctor:If you wish to conceive after menopause, the best chances are with invitro fertilization where if there are any viable eggs available it can be harvested and fertilized externally and implanted into you.
Doctor:If there are no viable ovum, then you may need to use donor ovum.
User:Can I get from my partner,
Doctor:You can get the ovum from a healthy menstruating ovum.
Doctor:But before you opt for IVF, your doctor need to check estrogen and progesterone levels to determine the success rates.
Doctor:Hope I am clear.
User:How much does it cost me to do it?
User:Ok thank you for the update
Doctor:Success of IVF is only about 30% in a healthy women. Therefore most times we need to try it repeatedly inorder to achieve success.
Doctor:There are some cases where IVF was tried more than 6 cycles.
Doctor:Each cycle may cost around 10000 to 15000 USD
Doctor:Therefore it is definitely going to burn bigger hole in your purse. So pursue IVF only if you are prepared for repeated cycles.
Doctor:Thank you.
