Fertility naturally declines with age, and having a baby later in life can increase the risk for pregnancy complications. That said, there’s no “best age” to get pregnant. The decision to start a.

A woman’s peak reproductive years are between the late teens and late 20s. By age 30 years, fertility (the ability to get pregnant) starts to decline. This decline becomes more rapid once you reach your mid.

As more and more women wait to have children, their spouses are forced to postpone parenthood, too. Back in 1970, less than 15% of all men fathering children were over 35. As women age, fertility wanes, and the risk of genetic problems in their babies increases.

Now, a growing body of research suggests that middle-aged men might be more likely to father. Falling fertility: A woman’s ability to get pregnant begins to decrease slightly at age 27, and then decreases significantly after the age of 37. The average healthy couple under the age of 30. In the early 1970s, it was 21 years old.

By 2000, it was 24.9, and by 2014, it was 26.3. Some of this is due to the rapid decrease in teen pregnancies. But the middle is rapidly rising too, because of improved access to sex education, birth control, and that most women now have careers — all of which lead to women waiting longer to have children. Fertility in the Aging Female A woman’s best reproductive years are in her 20s.

Fertility gradually declines in the 30s, particularly after age 35. Each month that she tries, a healthy, fertile 30-year-old. There’s no expiration date on when guys can father a child. Case in point: Rocker Mick Jagger just had his eighth child at the age of 73. Since men don’t hit menopause—the time in a woman’s life.

We don’t know the answer to that. There are multiple factors, and it takes a lot to make a healthy child and the outcome is dependent on age of the mother, the father and the uterine environment. Fertility naturally declines as a woman ages, but the decline has little to do with the aging that’s happening to bones, skin, and most of the body’s organs.

It’s the age and quality of a woman’s eggs that are the primary reason for the decline in fertility as a woman ages.

  • Hi I’m 38 and have had ivf 2 years ago but didn’t work. Fertility specialists said I only have 13 percent chance to get pregnant and better have a donor instead but still did it with my own eggs. I went through egg collections but my 3 eggs didn’t developed and died after 3 days ��. Do u think I still have chance? What can i take or what can you suggest I need to do? Still hoping to have a baby of my own…

  • I am 43 and have 10 kids. My youngest is 11 months. I would like to hurry and have one final. Would this be possible at my age now?

  • Am I too late to freeze eggs at 39? I turn 40 in December and am freaking out! Not met the right guy yet ���� I really really really want the baby to be biologically mine. I can’t explain why. But I’m so worried. Have had no checks though.

Been actively trying to conceive

  • Hi!, I hope you can help me by giving me an honest answer to my question. I visit an OB today, its my first time to visit her, and she told me that its not safe for you to get pregnant it can cause your life if you give birth just upon telling her that I have congestive heart failure. I really felt bad when she told this to me, I haven’t asked my cardio about it. Do you think that she is right?

  • My wife and I married late and had children late, neither one by design. We have two sons: our first by C-section when when my wife was 39; the second by natural birth at 41. Both are now grown, as hale and hearty as any men and both quite successful in their chosen fields. This is not to argue against the cautions of medical people, but for us it was well worth whatever risks it entailed.
