Well obviously I am not 47, but I do know some women personally who have conceived naturally at that age. All had quite a few children tho. Having more children earlier on increases your chances of having more later on in life.

You should probably talk to a specialist to see what your chances are. It is a little dangerous to conceive at this stage (more for the baby) and you will probably need some sort of hormonal supplement....of course not all women do. Some women have already started peri-menopause at this stage and will never have the right hormone levels to conceive at this age, and some may not have any eggs left. Everyone is different.

I'm 47 in May and got pregnant by accident on the fourth day of my period (i.e. I was still leaking a very small volume of pink liquid) Mind the dad is well fit and I've never risked getting pregnant by him before - my other child is now settled in secondary school and will be 13 before I have to go back to work.

I am 42 and have been trying for 2yrs with no success. I have four kids already aged 17 to 21. I just don't think it will happen for me but I'm so grateful for the kids I already have and I could have grandkids soon enough. Best of luck and have fun trying.
