In brief: Natural or assisted?
I believe unassisted pregnancy into the fifth decade has been reported.
It is rare now since risks of a genetic defect are so high. Assisted pregnancy (internationally) with mom having special care & donor embryo has been reported as late as ~60 if memory serves me right. Sadly, i believe that mom died a few years later. There are amazing things we can do, but whether we should do them is ?
