Trying to conceive at 40

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.
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. For women trying to conceive after age 35 or even age 40, education and understanding the effects that age has on fertility is truly important.
If you and your partner have delayed having children until you are in your forties you are probably already aware that it's a bit more difficult to conceive but it's far from impossible.


Fortunately with the advances in fertility treatments there are plenty of options availble to help you to conceive and start a family.
There are also additional problems for the mother like heart disease or high blood pressure that should be initially checked by your GP before you start to try to conceive.
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.
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.
