Percent of becoming pregnant after 40

After that, the picture is a little less clear."It would appear from the limited and poor quality data that we have that that rate falls significantly [at 40]. So while it's harder for older women to get pregnant, and the chance of a chromosomally abnormal child increases, these problems do not increase as sharply as we fear - except perhaps for those trying IVF or artificial insemination."Those statistics are more discouraging for older women," explains Twenge. 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. They put together all these church birth records and then came up with these statistics about how likely it was [someone would] get pregnant after certain ages." These are women who had no access to modern healthcare, nutrition or even electricity.


But as we know from some notable celebrity cases, it is not impossible to get pregnant in the early or indeed late 40s," says James.And, he adds, there is evidence that female fertility is improving. The most widely cited is a paper by David Dunson published in 2004, which found that 82% of women aged between 35 and 39 fell pregnant within a year.
