Did he won Basel or not?
Generally speaking yes, but it is not a universal rule. As a form of precaution it is better to try it sooner for health reasons. But a 42 years old woman that, for whatever reason has not been able to have a kid before, can still have a perfectly healthy offspring aged 42.As far as I know, women should not be expecting at 42, not good for their health..
