A 40-year-old only has a 5% chance of getting pregnant per month. This means that even for those that will get pregnant, it may take longer. As a point of comparison, a 30-year-old has about a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month. For women ages 15 to 34, 7% to 9% experience infertility, and women ages 35 to 39 experience infertility 25% of the time.

1. Due to advances in technology surrounding fertility, pregnancy, and delivery, it’s possible to safely have a baby at age 40. However, any pregnancy after age 40 is considered high risk. At 40, your chance of conceiving within a year is about 40 to 50 percent, compared with a woman in her mid 30s, who has a 75 percent chance. By age 43, a woman’s chance of.

The real odds Experts say that the real chances of a woman conceiving naturally after age 40 are almost zero. By the time you reach 40, your egg supply is usually pretty low, almost gone in fact. The eggs that do remain are usually not the best quality and may not implant properly.

Although the pregnancy rate for women over 40 is still about 0.1% of all births, that still represents a significant number of births each year. Depending on your individual health and wellness, having a pregnancy after 40 can be perfectly healthy. Most women over 40 have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. If you get pregnant past that age, you have a 10-fold increased risk, compared with women younger than 30, of placenta previa—a dangerous condition.

As more women delay having kids, the birth rates for older moms are rising, and plenty of those moms get pregnant naturally. (The statistics say for a 40-year-old woman there’s about a five percent chance every month of getting pregnant). It’s encouraging news for 40-something year-old moms who want kids. According to most research your chance of getting pregnant naturally at age 40 is about 5%.

This is a drop from 75% at age 30. There is no denying this. By age 35, there’s about a 15 percent chance of getting pregnant naturally per menstrual cycle, and by age 40, it drops to around 5 percent or less per cycle (around 1 in 10 women per cycle). At 45, there’s only a slim chance of conceiving naturally, without fertility treatments or help.

More About Pregnancy in Your 30s and 40s. By the age of 31, the chances of getting pregnant begins to drop by about three percent per year, until 35, when the decline picks up speed. By age 40, a woman’s odds of conceiving are five percent per cycle, on average.
