Fertility treatment is meant for men and women who face conception problems. Few couples remain childless and therefore decide upon fertility treatment in Hyderabad.
If a person is one’s thirties or forties it is indeed very likely a person can have a healthy pregnancy as well as a baby. Yet, it might take a person longer to get pregnant and few people may need medical help, which is referred to as assisted conception.
Why does age affect fertility?
Fertility does decrease with age, particularly after the age of 35 because both the number as well as the quality of eggs get lower.
An egg is sent from one’s ovaries to one’s womb every month from when a person hits puberty to menopause. When the egg does bind with sperm in the womb a person gets pregnant. Although, it may seem like one’s body is making a new egg every month, this is not the situation. Women are born with all sorts of eggs they ever have and they are then stored in the woman’s ovaries. As a person gets older the eggs get older too. To learn about one’s cycle of fertility, it does help to check out one’s ovulation calculator.
How long it takes to get pregnant depends on the age?
Several couples whereby the woman is under 40 tend to get pregnant naturally within a year of having regular unprotected sex (having sex every 2 to 3 days without making use of contraception).
There are several causes for fertility problems, but at times an exact cause cannot be found. This is referred to as ‘unexplained infertility’.
There are several treatments such as IVF (in vitro fertilization) that can help a person to conceive if a person is struggling. The person needs to see the GP if the person has not conceived after a year of trying or within six months of trying to conceive if over 36.
If any person is having other health concerns related to fertility, such as endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or even thyroid problems then it helps to consult a doctor.
After all, age is not the only thing that may affect one’s fertility. Smoking, alcohol as well as drug use, obesity, and also sexually transmitted diseases can impact the chances of pregnancy.
What if my male partner is older?
Men’s ability to have a baby also does decline with age, though not as much as women’s. If the partner is over 40, this can make it difficult to get pregnant, especially if a person is also over 40. Less interest in sex, poor sperm quality, and also lower levels of sex hormones can also affect older men.
How can my age affect my pregnancy? Fertility treatment does help problematic men who are unable to help in conception.
Most women above the ‘ideal’ childbearing age do have healthy pregnancies as well as babies, but a complication in pregnancy such as miscarriage also does increase with age.
Women over 40 are faced with an increased chance of having a baby with Down’s syndrome.
Is any extra care required if pregnant and over 40?
Yes. If you are over 40 the midwife, GP, obstetrician, or specialist teams can all be involved in the care during the pregnancy.
What to do for ensuring a healthy late pregnancy?
The best thing that can be done if a person is planning to have a baby at any age and to make sure a person is healthy before getting pregnant is:
- Being as close as much as possible to a healthy BMI
- Taking folic acid for at least about 2 months before conception
- Doing regular physical activity
- Eating a healthy, balanced diet
- Stopping smoking
- Cutting caffeine down to under 200mg a day
- Avoiding alcohol as well as illegal drugs
- Talking to one’s doctor or specialist about any existing medical conditions as well as pregnancy
- Being tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STIs) if a person has any reason to believe a person may be at risk of having the disease.
- Having a cervical screening test within three years
- Making sure the person has had the MMR vaccination.
