What are my chances of having a baby at 44

A woman’s age is the most important factor affecting the chances of a live birth when her own eggs are used. A woman’s age not only affects the chance for pregnancy when her own eggs are used, but also affects her risk for miscarriage. As women get older, cycles that have progressed to egg retrieval are slightly less likely to reach transfer. 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.
Not to paint a bleak picture but naturally risks are heightened in pregnancies after the age of 40.


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.
If you’re starting to worry that you’ll stick out like a sore-thumb in the antenatal classes don’t worry - more and more people are delaying motherhood - whatever the reason, the result is the same.
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.
However, in older women and women with low egg reserve (high FSH or low AMH levels), Natural and Mild IVF can be more successful than conventional IVF.This isn’t just reserved for heterosexual couples success rates are higher in single women and lesbian couples with the use of donor sperm.
Single women and lesbian couples can try insemination with donor sperm as the first option if their fallopian tubes are open as long as their egg reserve is not too low.


The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. 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. Natural IVF can help even in situations where women are pre-menopausal or have very low egg reserve and where fertility drugs do not work.
