Looking for DE statistics/info (risks, cancer ment)June 28 2012 at 3:31 PM

I am looking for specific information on carrying a child via DE. I am 45, healthy (height/weight appropriate, low bp, no medications or medical issues etc) and hoping to have a child via DE.
My husband is very concerned with risks associated with carrying a child at the age of 45. I called my ob/gyn who said if my health is good,and the egg is healthy (and young) that I shouldn't have any risks that a younger woman wouldn't have to deal with, with the expection of having a very slightly higher risk for high bp (but just a hair more risk).
DH brought up an elevated risk of BC due to the estrogen/progesterone I would have to take. My understanding is that the hormones are so short term that there is no real risk, but I can't find stats to back this assertion up.
Are there web-sites or journal articles that might help alleviate some of his anxiety about this?
Thanks and baby dust to all!
