Chances of pregnancy over 43

It is ten times harder for a woman to become pregnant at 43 than at 37, doctors have warned.The rapid speeding up of a woman’s biological clock means that by the time she is 43, she will need to go through 44 eggs on average to produce just one normal embryo.
Researcher Meredith Brower said that the number of eggs needed for a viable pregnancy rises ‘almost exponentially’ after 42, and urged women to freeze their eggs without delay.British experts said that while, ideally, women would have their babies in their twenties, the realities of modern life mean many have no choice but to wait.
No delay: Experts say that women who want to freeze their eggs should do so in their late twenties or early thirties to have the best chance of success later. Getting pregnant can be hard at the best of times but when you're over a certain age unfortunately things can get even harder.
We spoke to Professor Geeta Nargund, Medical Director at Create Health, to find out all you need to know about getting pregnant after 40 so you can be as prepared as you need.


Not to paint a bleak picture but naturally risks are heightened in pregnancies after the age of 40.
But there is no denying that the chances of getting pregnant naturally after the age of 40 significantly drop. Statistics from Baby Centre show: “At 40 your chance of conceiving within a year of beginning to try is about 40 to 50 percent, compared to a woman in her mid-30s, who has a 75 percent chance.
Conventional IVF with suppression of ovaries is another option but may not be necessary for women over 40 and in fact may lead to unnecessary use of high stimulation and reduced response and quality of eggs. In fact the Guardian reported that the number of births to over 40s has increased by 15% in the past five years alone.


A woman’s egg supply is naturally going to decrease as she ages and with the eggs that remain there is a heightened chance of chromosomal problems like Down's Syndrome, birth defects and miscarriage.
