Having baby over 40 risks

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. Fortunately, there are a number of fertility options that we can offer older women who are having trouble getting pregnant naturally including assisted reproductive technologies like Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). 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. The average age of women at their first birth has also risen over the past 4 decades, and since 2000, 46 states and DC have experienced a rise in the first-birth rate for women over 35.
For instance, the risks of having a child with a genetic disorder rise after 40, says Starck.


She doesn’t like seeing her patients come in in a panic over it being potentially too late to have kids.
But use of ART has doubled over the past decade, and today 1% of all babies born in the U.S. It's a fact that the spontaneous pregnancy rates for women over 40 are much lower than women under the age of 35.  Today, so many women are putting off having children to pursue career and education, yet are many times unaware how age affects fertility.
The chart also demonstrates how infertility rates rise significantly as a woman reaches age 40.
The likelihood of infertility is about 15% between the ages of 35 and 39 and then rises sharply to 32% at age 40.


In fact, for women over the age of 35, and especially over age 40, the risks of congenital birth defects also increase significantly.
