Age and fertility


A woman is said to be on her prime when it comes to fertility during her twenties. Each woman has a specific number of eggs that are released each month during her menstrual period. Her body also releases good quality eggs first. This is why most women can get pregnant in their twenties without much trouble. However, as the woman gets older, her fertility starts to decline. This is the main reason why older women are having difficulty trying to conceive. Aside from that, the baby is more prone to chromosome abnormalities with women pregnant at an older age.

Some women, especially celebrities, want to fulfill their goals and have a good career first before getting pregnant so they choose to have their eggs frozen so they have great quality eggs when they decide to get pregnant. This doesn’t mean that woman in her older age can no longer get pregnant, it is still possible. It’s just that a woman’s chance to get pregnant naturally decreases compared to younger women. Pregnancytips.org says that women over the age of 35 who are trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months with no success may seek help from their doctor.
