Chances of pregnancy at 42 years old

Sarah Briggs, a former senior manager for Watford Council and British Waterways, who is married to David, a 38-year-old accountant, and lives near Carlisle, Cumbria, says she’s had no problem at all getting pregnant in her 40s. It is ten times harder for a woman to become pregnant at 43 than at 37, doctors have warned.The rapid speeding up of a woman’s biological clock means that by the time she is 43, she will need to go through 44 eggs on average to produce just one normal embryo. Researcher Meredith Brower said that the number of eggs needed for a viable pregnancy rises ‘almost exponentially’ after 42, and urged women to freeze their eggs without delay.British experts said that while, ideally, women would have their babies in their twenties, the realities of modern life mean many have no choice but to wait. No delay: Experts say that women who want to freeze their eggs should do so in their late twenties or early thirties to have the best chance of success later.
Two years ago a major study from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists warned that women aged 35 were six times more likely to have problems conceiving than those ten years younger.
Baby Rhiannon is now 14 months old and Jessica says they would like to try for more children in the next year or so, but will be more laidback.‘I don’t think I would have too much problem conceiving again because I don’t drink or smoke and I’m very healthy,’ she says. It followed 2004 research that suggested of those having sex twice a week, 82 per cent of 35 to 39-year-olds conceived within a year - just 4 per cent fewer than those aged 27 to 34.
Her youngest child, Edward, was conceived when she was 48; all her pregnancies were natural, without any fertility treatment. A lot of the couples were over 35 and had been trying to get pregnant for ten years.’Ultimately, she thinks it’s unhelpful for doctors to put pressure on women to have their children younger.


Claudia, originally from Yorkshire but now based in Spain with her husband Javier, 30, says each time she conceived naturally and extremely quickly, with textbook pregnancies.She feels so strongly that older women face an unwarranted barrage of negativity if they want to try for families that she wrote Right Time Baby, a guide to later motherhood.
While she’d hoped to have children by the time she was in her 30s, her then fiance broke up with her, primarily because he didn’t want children.She was then single for seven years until she met Matthew, 33, in 2009. You also have age on your side -- the average woman's fertility peaks at the age of 24.Women under age 25 have a 96 percent chance of conceiving in a year if they're trying each month. Most are easily treatable and don't require help from a specialist unless conception is taking longer than one year.Mid-late 20s (25 to 29)From age 25 to 34, you have an 86 percent chance of conceiving after trying for a year.
Your chances of miscarrying are 10 percent, only a little higher than they were in your early 20s. There's no need to consult a specialist until you've been actively trying for more than 12 months without success.Early 30s (30 to 34)Your odds of conceiving are still high -- up to an 86 percent success rate for couples that try for a full year.
The only major change is that your chances of miscarriage by age 30 have risen to 20 percent.Conventional wisdom says that you don't need to see fertility treatment in your early 30s until you've been trying for a year with no luck, but some doctors recommend consulting your ob-gyn or primary care physician if you're still having trouble after 9 months. That could mean a 78 percent chance of conceiving within the year.But 35 seems to be the point where fertility does decline. You're also at a little greater risk of miscarriage, a Down syndrome pregnancy or an abnormal pregnancy."Roughly 30 percent of women age 35 may take a year or more to conceive.


Intrauterine insemination is a less invasive assisted reproductive technology that may work but in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be an excellent treatment option as well.Finally, this is your last chance to freeze viable eggs for use at a later date, should you prefer not to get pregnant right now. At this stage, you're facing a few challenges that make it harder to conceive and to stay pregnant.
There may be more issues with older male partners, and some women report an increase in uterine lining issues with age.
If a 42-year-old woman has five embryos placed, there is a 10 to 20 percent chance of pregnancy. Success rates are 0 to 1 percent, and most clinics recommend using eggs donated by a younger woman for those who want to conceive between ages 46 and 50.For a woman in her mid-40s who wants to have a biological pregnancy, using a donor egg is best bet.
