Spain, a 62 year old woman is eight months pregnant. At an age that is no longer young, how is the story of her pregnancy that is in the public spotlight?
A woman from Spain, 62 years old, is eight months pregnant, and it is even predicted that the day of delivery will fall in October this year. Even Dr. Lina Alvarez said that she had experienced menopause 20 years ago. Meanwhile, her pregnancy is now thanks to her fertility therapy.
Previously he already had two sons, now his first child is 27 years old. Unfortunately, his son suffered a head injury before birth, the disruption in his examination that required routine care after birth. While his second child was only 10 years old, he was born when his mother was 52 years old.
As quoted from kompas.com, Alvarez, according to the Spanish news agency EFE, stated that he felt like a woman aged 30 years. He is very proud to have another child when everyone doubts him. Even doctors do not recommend her to get pregnant again because of her vulnerable age.
As a result of his struggle, he finally found an obstetrician who could help him carry out a series of tests. After carrying out a series of tests, there is a possibility that only six percent of them will be able to successfully have another child at an age that is already classified as vulnerable to becoming pregnant because the health of the mother and the fetus is the biggest risk in carrying out the treatment.
Even in his words, he was very happy to be able to achieve miracles at his age. She can return to being a mother again even though in her country Spain is debated. He uses the method by implanting embryos in his body at a very vulnerable age, the age of 60. Although many people talked about it, he was not at all disturbed.
An embryo was implanted by a mother who gave birth to eight twins. In a confession to the Los Angeles Times, he performed fertility treatment. He had an embryo implanted.
Every time she has an examination she is reminded that the fertility clinic has consequences. Even every ethicist and fertility specialist thinks that planting embryos is both irresponsible and unethical.
Even in several countries in Europe, especially Germany and Italy. The limit for the number of embryos allowed to be implanted is only three. So that it will not harm the mother and the fetus who carry out this method. Of course the implanted embryo will divide and it is possible that octuplets like the story above might occur.
The reason is that the eight babies born do not mean that out of eight embryos but four to five perisen can divide so it is very possible if the five embryos implanted will produce eight embryos. A condition that is hard to believe by society, the twins experienced by this 33 year old young woman.
Reportedly, this young woman was given the option by doctors to reduce the number of embryos. It’s just that he refused. This personal decision ultimately supported the woman in being able to receive multiple embryos. It’s just that in planting it requires skills to select embryos.
It should be noted that embryo selection is not the same as traditional abortion. There are different things, the goal is also for the good and health of the baby, maybe ending / aborting the pregnancy itself. So that the pros and cons between countries regarding embryo planting are very much discussed. For example, the United States states that patients under the age of 35 cannot implant more than two embryos, which is an extraordinary condition.
