Percentage of getting pregnant over 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. 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. This over-production of FSH can result in more than one follicle ripening and releasing an egg.
Over 80 per cent of couples will conceive within a year if they stop using contraception and have regular sex (CKS 2007, NCCWCH 2013:64). 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.

So while it's harder for older women to get pregnant, and the chance of a chromosomally abnormal child increases, these problems do not increase as sharply as we fear - except perhaps for those trying IVF or artificial insemination."Those statistics are more discouraging for older women," explains Twenge. By the age of 30, her odds are 13 per cent and, at 35, they have dropped below 10 per cent.The speeding up of the biological clock mean the chances of pregnancy plummet after 35.

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).
They put together all these church birth records and then came up with these statistics about how likely it was [someone would] get pregnant after certain ages." These are women who had no access to modern healthcare, nutrition or even electricity.
But as we know from some notable celebrity cases, it is not impossible to get pregnant in the early or indeed late 40s," says James.And, he adds, there is evidence that female fertility is improving.


It's possible that this has been overstated too, in James's view.The chance of any chromosomal abnormality at the age of 20 is one in 500, he says. The average 40-year-old who has been trying for six months has just a 5 per cent chance of getting pregnant in the next month – or odds of one in 20. As women grow older the likelihood of getting pregnant falls while the likelihood of infertility rises.
However, the success rates of IVF treatment for women over 40 using their own eggs are low, and have not increased much over the past decade (RCOG 2011). This could prevent fertilisation altogether or increase the likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy (CKS 2007, NCCWCH 2013:129, Utting and Bewley 2011). The most widely cited is a paper by David Dunson published in 2004, which found that 82% of women aged between 35 and 39 fell pregnant within a year.
