# What Are My Chances of Conceiving After Age 40?

It used to be rare for a woman to wait to age 25 to get married. It wasn't at all uncommon for girls in their teens to walk down the aisle. Of course in those days girls rarel…y went to school, and hardly ever past high school. Besides, a woman's job was set for her at birth: be a wife and mother and look after the household.Things are very different these days. The median age for a woman's first marriage in the US is now closing in on 27. For women with a degree, that number climbs to 28.4. And that's the median. So in half of all first-time marriages the woman is older than that. And most women do not start trying to conceive right away. They want to get settled in their careers and they want to enjoy married life with their partners before becoming mothers. By the time many of these women are ready to have children, they often find it isn't as easy as they anticipated. We have two more groups of women very common now and not so common in the past. Now it is possible for a woman to choose single motherhood when she has not found a partner to create a family with. And many women enter into second marriages when they're approaching their middle years, and want to take the natural next step of having a child with their new life partner. All of these women face the same problem: reduced fertility because of their age.A woman's fertility reaches its peak between the ages of 20 and 24. By age 27 her fertility is already beginning to drop off, by about 10%. A sexually active woman not using birth control has a 78% chance of getting pregnant within one year when she is between 25 and 29 years old, whereas in her earlier 20s she would have had an 86% chance of getting pregnant under the same circumstances. Fertility drops rapidly in a woman's late 30s and early 40s. By age 40 a woman's chances of getting pregnant drops to 36% and by 45 shoots down to 5%.The fertility rate is not the opposite of infertility. In other words, if you have a 36% chance of getting pregnant in one year that does not mean you have a 64% chance of being infertile. At age 40, your chance of being infertile is 32%, so there is actually a 68% chance that it is still possible for you to conceive.Two important things you can do to increase your chances of conceiving after age 40 are to know your cycle very well, and to relax. The first one may be a lot easier to achieve than the second. To learn your cycle, start by understanding that you ovulate 14 days before your period begins. Pay close attention to your body at that time and you will notice some differences. Sometimes a woman feels a slight pain on the side she is ovulating from. Your discharge will likely be thicker and possibly cloudy at this time each month. Feel your cervix each day and notice its changes throughout your cycle. When you are ovulating your cervix opens up and gets a little softer. To help you relax, try a combination of fun, sexy dance like bellydancing, salsa or even a rumba class in addition to a calming activity such as yoga or meditation.It is becoming increasingly apparent that diet is important to a woman's fertility. Anecdotal evidence has supported this and now so does science. To increase your fertility, eat a diet with moderately high amounts of good-quality carbs that take a while to digest, known as low-GI carbs. This means whole grains, whole fruits and beans. Avoid sugars and refined starches such as white breads and pasta. Eat a fiber-rich diet with lots of vegetables. Eat smaller amounts of animal protein, getting more of your protein from plant sources. And avoid trans fats at all costs, and if you eat dairy, choose a higher-fat version.Smoking has a very negative affect on fertility. As does alcohol. Even one to four drinks per week makes for a measurable reduction in fertility. Smoking and alcohol both negatively affect the father's chances of fertility, too, so if you want to conceive, it's best for both of you to cut those two habits out completely. Exercise has a positive affect, as long as you don't train to excess. Elite athletes, for example, have a lower rate of fertility than those exercising regularly to stay fit and healthy. Bodyweight is important to fertility. If you are underweight your body may believe food is too scarce to allow for pregnancy, and if you're overweight your hormones are affected and can reduce your fertility. The most fertile range is a body mass index, or BMI, of 21 to 24.As a woman ages, her eggs become ever more likely to be defective. Because most miscarriages take place because of a chromosomal abnormality, a woman's chance of miscarriage with a pregnancy increases greatly as she ages, from 10% at age 20 to over 90% at age 45. If you do carry the baby to term, your chances of having a child with a chromosomal abnormality are much greater than they are for younger women, but the chance of the child not having an abnormality is much greater still. At age 20, the risk of having a child with Down's Syndrome is 1 in 1667 live births. At age 40 the risk is 1 in 106 and at age 45 the risk increases to 1 in 30. The risk of having a child with any chromosomal abnormality at age 40 is 1 in 66 and at age 45 the risk is 1 in 21. So you can see that the risk increases dramatically with your age, but for every 21 live births at age 45, 20 of them do not have a chromosomal abnormality. If you are able to conceive and carry to term, the odds are still well in your favor.By 2010 the number of women giving birth after age 40 was double the number in 2000 and almost triple the number in 1990.There is no question that conceiving and delivering a healthy child becomes a more difficult prospect as you age, but you can change your lifestyle to increase your chances of conception, and getting to know your cycle can increase your chances further. If you find you are unable to conceive on your own, then you can try in-vitro fertilization, or IVF, in which your egg is fertilized by your partner's sperm outside your body and the resulting embryo is placed in the uterus for implantation. If you are over 45, you may need to use donor eggs for this procedure. (MORE)
