How does age affect a woman’s ability to have children?




Age is no barrier in achieving many things. But it can reduce the chance of a woman getting pregnant and having a healthy baby. A woman’s age is the single most important factor affecting her fertility. As a woman ages, it takes longer to conceive and the risk of not being able to get pregnant increases. Also, the risk of miscarriage, and complications in pregnancy and childbirth increase.

Causes:

-This gradual change in fertility is mostly due to a decrease in the number and quality of eggs in your ovaries.

-Non-ovarian pelvic factors. As you get older, you are more likely to have experienced other medical problems – such as endometriosis, fibroids, tubal disease or polyps which can reduce your fertility.

-The women are more prone to have co-existing medical conditions.
