How Age Affects Fertility In Women, And The Best Age A Woman Should Start Child Birth

In your 20s

Accordingly to healthline. Women are most fertile and likely to conceive pregnant in their twenties.

You have the most eggs and the lowest risk of becoming pregnant during this time of year.

At age 25, you have a 20% chance of becoming pregnant after three months of trying.

In your 30s

Fertility begins to decline at age 32. Beyond age 35, that reduction quickens.

Around one million of a woman's lifetime's worth of eggs are present before birth. Throughout time, there are fewer eggs available.

You should have about 25,000 eggs in your ovaries when you're 37 years old.

If you are 35 years of age or older, you have a 12% chance of becoming pregnant after three months of trying.

A woman's risk of miscarriage and genetic disorders rises after age 35. It's possible to experience more difficulties getting pregnant or giving birth if you're having a baby later in life.

So, your doctor might suggest that you and your unborn child go through additional screening and testing.

In your 40s

A woman's natural ability to get pregnant starts to wane quickly in her 40s. Your chances of getting pregnant at 40 after three months of trying are around 7%.

Over time, both your egg quantity and quality deteriorate. Older eggs, which have more chromosome problems, are linked to an increased risk of having a kid with a birth defect.

But, for the majority of women in their 40s, the risks of a healthy pregnancy and child increase significantly. Here are some risks to think about:

C-section delivery in pregnancy

too early in pregnancy

low birth weight

birth abnormalities that result in stillbirth.

Women are more prone than men to experience medical conditions including diabetes and high blood pressure after the age of 35. These could lead to pregnancy issues like gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

In order to rule out any major health conditions, your doctor could advise additional testing and monitoring if you've reached the age of 40.
