QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
We have been trying to conceive for 9 months now so last month I had my progesterone blood levels checked on day 21. They came back as 14 which my doctor says indicates I did ovulate. However I have been looking things up on the net and they all seem to say levels need to above 30 for ovulation.

I am 42, have a 20 month old who was conceived 2nd month of trying and then had one miscarriage conceived after 2 months as well. I am worried now that due to my age I have run out of eggs. Is my doctor mistaken?

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am 40. I have a 20 yr old and I 5 year old. Before the 5 yr old was conceived I was told I could not have anymore children. After I had the 5yr old. I got the IUD. on 2-11-09 I had it removed.

What are my chances in getting pregnant again? I wouldn't mind it. I am already a week late and happy.
