Response to Agree - DE at an advanced age is becoming out of control
Sorry but while I respect that you are entitled to your own opinions, I am tired of seeing people's opinions presented here as fact or the way things should be. No one is going to push you to use DE over 50 or try when you feel you've reached your personal limit, but some of the things people are saying here ....."sad and tragic stories" on the over 50 or DE boards...... that's just not true. Deaths (and someone has just lost their spouse to cancer on the over 50 board) and premature birth of twins (prem birth being a frequent complication of twin pregnancies) are things that happen to people of all ages at all times. When I told my cancer specialist about my TTC plans, he said that he sees people every day who thought they had plenty of time to raise their children, finding that their time is up.
The whole point of the article that started this thread is that people's bias about what should or shouldn't be done by others in their search for parenthood is not being borne out by any negative outcomes in the studies of these families as their children grow.
I would think that considering almost all of us are pushing the odds here, and that we all expect our respective decisions to be treated with respect, that posters could be more thoughtful about tolerating other's choices. Like I said, they don't have to be your choices, but this is a support board, not a "in and out depending on your age and decisions" board. Pay it forward.
