    Getting pregnant at 52 can be a more complicated situation than earlier in life because of the changes that hormone decline cause in your reproductive system.  You need to see a fertility specialist to be tested to determine if pregnancy is even a possibility and, if so, what procedures might be necessary to achieving your goal.

    Best of luck to you,

    Hi, Happy,

     

    I'm not a medical doctor and don't know what treatments are available to help you get pregnant. I'd suggest talking to your doctor to see what he/she suggests.

     

    Good luck!

    You don't have any business getting pregnant at 52!!!!  That is so absurd!  Think about the child.  Too risky for you and the baby.  Besides do you want to be a mother of a teenager in your 70's?  Will your child like that?  Are you going to be able to do the things with your child that you need to do?  Play, run, jump, hold, carry on your back, etc.........That is, if you live that long.  I hope you do.  But your chances decrease with age.  You might be healthy now, but the older you get the more you go downhill.
