I'm 41 year old. Is it true that my embryos won't be able to withstand freezing?if I had good embryos, should I have a fresh cycle better than frozen?

In brief: Advanced age

Unfortunately, older eggs do not fare well compared to younger ones in any aspect of IVF.
And whereas frozen embryos lately perform comparably to fresh embryos when young eggs are used, the same cannot be said about older eggs.
