Can i get pregnant naturally at 40

Yes, there are women who have conceived naturally over the age of 50 and had healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Consider this chart[1]which shows how the likelihood of a woman getting pregnant decreases from about an 86% chance between the ages of 20 and 24 years to about 35% between the ages of 40 and 44 years.
It's important to note that for couples trying to conceive naturally, we typically give women over the age of 35 only about six months of actively trying to get pregnant - which means monitoring ovulation monthly and having regular intercourse -  before we recommend that both partners have a thorough work up to evaluate fertility. Fortunately, there are a number of fertility options that we can offer older women who are having trouble getting pregnant naturally including assisted reproductive technologies like Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Additionally, for couples who come to the Vasectomy Reversal Center of America considering a vasectomy reversal, we make sure to educate them about the chances of conceiving naturally when the woman is over the age of 35.


This likelihood decreases even further by age 45 to a mere 5% chance of getting pregnant spontaneously. Many women believe that if they are getting a regular period, that means they are ovulating (true) and there's no problem with fertility or conceiving (not always true). Because it can take six to 12 months for the man's sperm count to reach an optimal stage for natural conception following a vasectomy reversal, women of advanced age often don't have the luxury of time. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about getting pregnant after 40 and to discuss the best options for you when it comes to conceiving a child…please feel free to leave your comments here. It's a fact that the spontaneous pregnancy rates for women over 40 are much lower than women under the age of 35.  Today, so many women are putting off having children to pursue career and education, yet are many times unaware how age affects fertility.


However, older woman can have problems with eggs being fertilized, or fertilized healthily.
