Getting pregnant blog

Above we have seen some of the things a woman can do to help you when looking for ways to get pregnant as quickly . 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). The relationship between female age and fertility is well established and discussed extensively in previous blogs. A large prospective study of 23,821 pregnant women (the Danish National Birth Cohort study) from 1997 to 1999 showed that pregnancies initiated by men 50 or older had a twofold increased risk of ending in fetal loss. Age-related infertility is something fertility clinics are seeing increasingly, as more couples work on getting pregnant after 40.
Lower dietary content of antioxidants has been found to be associated with reduced semen quality, and diets containing more antioxidants have been associated with greater pregnancy success in women.
Increased OS in follicular fluid correlates with increasing female age, granulosa cell (GC, the cells that surround an egg) apoptosis, reduced egg and embryo quality, and reduced pregnancy success with IVF. My previous blog addressed the chances of getting pregnant after 43 and the options for those in this age group who wish to have children. A low AMH level after age 40 years is associated with a poor outcome.  In younger patients, low AMH patients will have reasonable pregnancy rates although they will produce few eggs.


In vitro fertilization (IVF)-embryo transfer is the most successful infertility treatment, and for many people, it provides the last possibility for pregnancy.
Studies have found that using acupuncture with IVF achieves a clinical pregnancy rate of more than 42%. These are well-meaning doctors, and the purpose of their advice is actually to reassure the patient that everything is fine, and they have a good chance of getting pregnant without any medical help. However, sometimes this advice backfires, because what the patient hears is that it’s her fault that she’s not getting pregnant, because she is too tense.
Rather than attributing infertility to stress, good doctors explain to patients that if all the test results are normal, then sometimes continuing to try in the bedroom can result in a pregnancy, if they are willing to be patient (especially when the woman is young and they have not been trying to have a baby for too long). Making love in the morning – Despite making love at any time of the day is wonderful for helping a woman to get pregnant easily is much better done in the morning.
Sleep well at night – You may not think this will affect the ease with which a woman becomes pregnant, but it does. 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). 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.
One large study, the Avon Longitudinal Study of Pregnancy and Childhood, investigated the effect the paternal age has on the length of time to conception.


Everything in this blog applies to chances of conception with assisted reproductive technologies.
Yes!  However the pregnancy rate, even with IVF, drops precipitously every year after age 40, and most women increasingly have trouble getting pregnant. Clinical experience with use of Chinese traditional medicine and acupuncture during IVF suggests the pregnancy rate can be raised to at least 60%. This reinforces the doctor’s misconception that getting patients to relax helps them to get pregnant. Ideally, when it comes to getting pregnant a woman must remove all diet drinks that contain caffeine, not just soft drinks and coffee, but also tea. 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.
Instead of helping to increase the chances of a woman getting pregnant more easily than should drink plenty of fruit juices or milk shakes.
