Free IVF for women over 4029th June 2010
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence committee is reviewing the rules which bar women over 40 from receiving free IVF treatment.
Currently women aged between 23 and 39 years of age are offered three cycles of the treatment if they are deemed suitable. Under new recommendations, women could be given an ovarian reserve test to see if they are elgible to recieve the treatment. Fertility expert Dr Allan Pacey, of Sheffield University, said: "I think it is logical to move away from age guidelines to ovarian reserve. It is unfair now."
