In brief: Things to consider

At 41, you need to realize that you are not ovulating every month.
Any pregnancy would be high risk and the chance for complications and pregnancy loss is greater. Miscarriage is greater because your chances for chromosomal abnormalities is about 1/50. Many women in their 40's have successful pregnancies, however, and if you are healthy, you probably will do fine.See your provider!
