Oocyte or embryo donation to women of advanced age: a committee opinion.

Author information

American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Birmingham, Alabama 35216, USA.


Physicians should obtain a complete medical evaluation before deciding to attempt transfer of embryos to any woman over age 50. Embryo transfer should be strongly discouraged or denied to any woman over age 50 with underlying issues that could increase or further obstetrical risks and discouraged in women over age 55 without such issues. This statement replaces the earlier ASRM Ethics Committee statement titled, "Oocyte donation to postmenopausal women," last published in 2004 (Fertil Steril 2004;82:S254-5).
