[ - ] Poll: Do you think Halle Berry conceived her last completely naturally as she claims in interviews? I don't believe it for a second, but it's her right to say whatever she wants about her personal health business. Problem is a friend of mine cites this as an example of why she thinks she'll have no problem putting off children until late 30s. She can do whatever she wants, but she needs to have realistic expectations that fertility after 35 is a crapshoot and celebrity anecdotes aren't going to help you conceive. For all anyone knows, Halle Berry froze her eggs a long time ago. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If you still have regular cycles and you had your first at 41 with zero fertility help/ complications, then it can't hurt to try! Decide ahead of time though if you both want to do IVF if you don't conceive naturally, and talk with your DH about the very real possibility that you'll never meet your grandchildren, or never see the child's wedding, etc. if you have a child so late. Not to put a damper on it, but just a conversation to have. [ Reply | More ]
