Having trouble getting pregnant at 35

Having made the exciting decision to start your own family you are sure to be wondering how long it will take to get pregnant. Like many women, you may have put off having children until the time felt right, and now find yourself in your 30s, wondering how fertile you are.
You may find it encouraging knowing that the number of women over the age of 30 having babies has risen in recent decades (ONS 2010) . Most women will be able to conceive naturally and give birth to a healthy baby if they get pregnant at 35 years old. About half of the women who don't get pregnant in the first year conceive during the following year, giving a pregnancy rate of 92 per cent within two years.

Age aside, there are some steps you can take to give yourself the best possible chance of conceiving and having a healthy pregnancy.

For some women having a multiple pregnancy brings them their dream family in one pregnancy. But if you are over 35, and finding that positive pregnancy test elusive, it is important to seek help sooner rather than later (NCCWCH 2013:6).

As women grow older the likelihood of getting pregnant falls while the likelihood of infertility rises.
This could prevent fertilisation altogether or increase the likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy (CKS 2007, NCCWCH 2013:129, Utting and Bewley 2011).
