How age adversely affects fertility

January 14, 2009

Leaving it later to start a family can be a wise decision as far as your career is concerned. But, studies indicate that putting off the decision to start a family can result in many problems that are most unanticipated.You are sure to have own justifications like higher education, career prospects, economic constraints etc. But be reminded that fertility potential falls down sharply for women as they age, when compared to men.

It is between the age group of twenty and twenty four that women are most fertile. However, studies indicate that men retain their fertility for a relatively longer period. At the age of thirty-five a woman is found to be half as fertile as she used to be during her early twenties. At forty-five your fertility potential is still diminished. In more simple terms, it can suddenly take much longer to get pregnant as you reach your thirties.

It has been found that most women get pregnant within two years of family life if they do not stick to any means of contraception and have regular sex. Regular sex relates to the practice of making love every two to three days throughout your cycle.   If you have crossed the age of thirty, you are likely to encounter with some or other hindrance in conceiving a baby.

As women get older, there are is natural decline in their general health. Moreover, as she gets older, the number of viable eggs decreases. Nowadays, more and more women are attaining menopause during the mid-forties. Another serious problem is that as a woman nears her menopause stage her menstrual pattern is likely to go irregular.

The endometrium, that lines the womb, becomes thinner and less hospitable to a fertilized egg as a woman reaches her early forties. Vaginal secretions also tend to be altered in constitution as a woman reaches her late middle age and turns less hostile to the entry of sperm cells.
