With egg donation and IVF, women who are past their reproductive years or menopause can still become pregnant.

Adriana Iliescu held the record as the oldest woman to give birth using IVF and donated egg, when she gave birth in 2004 at the age of 66, a record passed in 2006.

After the IVF treatment many couples are able to get pregnant without any fertility treatments.

In vitro fertilisation (or fertilization; IVF) is a process by which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: in vitro ("in glass").

The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman's ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory.

The fertilised egg (zygote) is cultured for 2–6 days in a growth medium and is then implanted in the same or another woman's uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.IVF techniques can be used in different types of situations.It is a technique of assisted reproductive technology for treatment of infertility.IVF techniques are also employed in gestational surrogacy, in which case the fertilised egg is implanted into a surrogate's uterus, and the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate.In some situations, donated eggs or sperms may be used.Some countries ban or otherwise regulate the availability of IVF treatment, giving rise to fertility tourism.
