How to get pregnant fast at age 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.


But don’t be disheartened there is a much more positive picture that has only just come into play.The NHS National Guidelines for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines have just had a recent update from their 2004 requirements of IVF only allowing women up to the age of 39 to have the treatment on the NHS. Netmums founder Siobhan Freegard said: 'UK women spend tens of millions each year on getting pregnant with a high pressure fertility industry designed to worry them into spending even more - but it seems we are more fertile than we realise.
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. The ‘Netmums Getting Pregnant Report’ of 3,151 women found of those who had children over 35, seven in 10 disagreed with the experts and were more fertile than previous research suggested.


Over half - 53 per cent - found it took them the same amount of time to become pregnant as when they were younger - while just under a quarter - 23 per cent - said they fell pregnant faster over the age of 35. However, of those couples who struggled to conceive, a quarter claim they succeeded only after they actively stopped trying.
