How Does Age Affect a Woman’s Ability to Have Children?

Age is a concept over which we humans don’t have control. The concept goes simultaneously the more you grow the weaker your body gets to conceive a bay.

When we talk about age, we consider it to be one of the most important factors when it comes to conceiving a healthy child. It’s a fact that as women’s age grow their fertility declines, when a woman is in her early 30s her fertility starts declining and it rapidly starts deckling after 35. After women reaches a particular age the chances of getting pregnant is considered to be rare. IVF success rates also declines as women gets older.

The myth:

It’s a myth that women can conceive a child at any point or age of her life.

This is completely wrong to say when we specially talk about a baby. A baby can only be conceived when a women is fertile.

We cannot consider age as a barrier when it comes to achieving many things in life, but it reduces a women’s chance of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby. Women’s age is considered to be one of the most important factors affecting her fertility. With the increase in age the chances of miscarriages, complications related to pregnancy also increases.


  • The change in fertility may be due to decrease in number of quality eggs in ovaries.
  • As you grow older you may experience many medical problems such as endometriosis, fibroids, tubal blockages, and many others which do affect your fertility.
  • Mostly women’s are prone to have co-existing medical issues.

It’s being said that after puberty female fertility increases and starts decreasing with the advance maternal age tentatively causing an increase in risk female infertility. A women’s fertility is in peak in the early and mid-20s after which it gradually starts declining.

How to make out your fertile days:

For tracking the fertile days in women we need to work out on our menstrual cycle, as they play a major role when it comes to fertility in women’s.

Day one is considered to be the first day of our menstrual period and last day is said to be the day before the next periods begins.

Ovulation takes place about two weeks before the next expected periods. For an instance if a women’s average menstrual cycle is 28 days, hence she will ovulate around day 14.

Mostly when a women conceives after 50 it is being done with the help of in vitro fertilization or popularly known as  IVF, and average age in women for menopause is considered to be 51yrs. In such cases older moms prefer donor eggs of younger ladies in order to conceive a child.
