Average time to get pregnant over 40

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.


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.
The organisation, Britain’s largest abortion provider, pointed out that more abortions were carried out for women over 40 than among teenagers. No wonder the average age for a British woman to have her first child is 30, and 35 for university-educated women.
