Chances of conceiving as we age

A woman’s age is the most important factor affecting her chance of conceiving. If you’re over 35, conceiving a baby may take longer.

This is because egg quality starts to decline as women get older. Some women with pre-existing gynaecological conditions that affect fertility, such as endometriosis, may find getting pregnant more challenging.

When to seek help if you’re struggling to conceive

Seeking fertility advice for the first time can be daunting for many women. If you’re over 35 and have been trying unsuccessfully for six months, consider speaking to a specialist at Juhi.

Optimise your lifestyle to welcome a pregnancy

Age may not be the only factor contributing to your chances of conception. For women over 35, lifestyle choices can significantly increase or decrease their chances of a healthy pregnancy. A positive focus on diet, mental health and wellbeing are crucial. “Getting early and regular prenatal care improves the chances of a healthy pregnancy.

Increased risk of miscarriage

One in four women will experience a miscarriage in the first trimester; unfortunately, this increases with age. By age 43, this will have increased to one in two.”

Medical disorders in pregnancy

Medical disorders such as hypertension (blood pressure), gestational diabetes and preterm birth have a higher incidence in first-time mums over 35.
