“I feared I’d never become a mother, but I had a baby at 45 after taking viagra”

A woman has told how she feared she might never become a mother, but gave birth to a boy at age 45 after taking Viagra to get pregnant.

Carin Rockind, 48, welcomed a “miracle” baby after trying for a child for five years after marrying her husband, Josh Klur, 52, an artist.



The couple were devastated after Carin miscarried twice and was on the verge of giving up on their dreams of starting a family.

In a last ditch effort, the couple decided to try expensive IVF – with one round costing them $40,000 (£32,000) – but there was only one embryo left – fertilized with his own sperm – to implant.

Carin decided to try using Viagra, which is usually used to treat erectile problems, after seeing a Youtube video in which a woman claimed to be using it to grow the lining of her uterus.

She claims that after taking Viagra and inserting it into her vagina she found out she was pregnant in April 2015.

At her 17-week scan, the doctor told Carin that she had vasa previa, which is a serious condition that can result in stillbirth. She was also informed that she would have to give birth via caesarean section.
