Can the age after 35 years affect fertility?

posted 7 years 1 week ago
Can the age after 35 years affect fertility? Due to a prolonged delay of marrying and conceiving, I came to regret later. Right now, I am in a mess of thoughts without an iota of idea what I would do. I wasted myself with the little childhood escapades that blinded me from reality. At the age of twenty-eight years, I could not master the tranquillity of marriage neither was I interested in anything that will disrupt my normal single life. I forgot the idea that the more I grew older the more my fertility was declining. It was not lost on me when I tried to conceive at that age but due to the heavy indulgence of pills, I couldn’t conceive. I intended to get a baby of myself and be happy later on in life. But it didn’t happen. I had mixed feelings to give up and do tubal legation and forget about siring a child. The conscience and guilt put me off and I could not try to do it. I was desperate to get a child but my age was advancing at a very high rate. After a thorough consultation, I decided to go for check up. Nothing amiss was found but my ovaries and uterus were all in order. The main problem was that at such an age, the ovaries were unable to produce quality eggs. The eggs could not be fertilised by sperms. I am living desperately and I would prefer IVF egg donation to the tubal legation. I would request those in the forum to help me to end my wait and desperation.

Hey there sweetie! I hope you are doing good. Welcome to the forum.You have come to the perfect platform for your problem. Here many women will be able to help you because they are also facing problems like you. Yes, Age is a major cause of infertility. It's better if you conceive before 30 because after that, every year the chances of you conceiving naturally decrease. The main reason behind this is that after the 30s, your body is getting old so it's also becoming infertile. I feel so bad for you. You struggled so much to become a mother but still unlucky. Why don't you just try surrogacy? It's something that helped me with my dream, maybe it can help you too. I know how hard it is for you, but please don't lose hope, stay strong, and don't stress yourself. Stressing yourself will decrease the chances to conceive. And let me tell you one more thing, Age also affects your IVF process. Good Luck! Much Love!

Hi there, I hope you are doing great. There is a relationship between women’s age and fertility. Women are born with all the eggs they will ever have, so as a woman ages there are chances that her eggs age with her and as a result it is getting lower in quantity and quality. Unfortunatly age is not something we can control. But if you want a baby or another baby, and you’re in a relationship, you can have a conversation with your partner sooner rather than later. There are also studies that shows that the age of male partner also impact on chance of conception, time to pregnancy, risk of miscarriage and the health of the child. Having said that, I would also like to say there are many women who are becoming pregnant naturally in their 40’s so every case and every individual is different. I wish you good luck!!1

hey mummy, hope you are in a great health. As for your question, yes, age is the key factor which causes infertility. However, it varies from person to person. but doctors agreed that the ovarian reserve tends to reduce after the age of 30. It keeps reducing until menopause. But there are cases where I have seen women experiencing early menopause at the age of 29. So it all depends upon your body. How it responds to hormonal receptors. The best way to know your cause of infertility is to see obgyn in order to determine the real cause. Then deciding which assisted reproductive technique suits you. There are quite few ICSI, IVF, and surrogacy. You can research what is best for you. There is no absolute end to fertility. If you can't conceive naturally, you have other assisted conception method to opt for. Moreover, the quality of the eggs can be enhanced by maintaining a healthy diet and certain medications. But for that consult with your doctor. Good luck!!

I trust she will be a mother soon. Hope she will be fine too. I hope that she would not confront any difficulty. Truly infertility is so difficult to declare. I know it must be a hard time for a lady yet she needs to go through it. I have faced infertility for 10 years. The reason for my infertility was unknown. I went for IUI yet fizzled. I had borne the torment of the technique however it was destiny. I was infertile however I didnt lose trust in this way, at last, I chose to go for surrogac following 10 years. I went to a clinic in Europe. I have a child now. I have no more stresses. I trust each lady would be honoured with a child. It is a blessing and people should recogniz it.

I've got all of you beat. How about 45 and TTC. All 3 IVF failed. So heartbroken and disappointed. Had an ectopic pregnancy years ago then a miscarriage. But not giving up. You have to hold on to hope. Positive mindset means everything. Prayers for all of us struggling with this.

Hi mumy
After reading your post, I stopped to think about what has been happening to you. It is true that you wasted a lot of your time when you were young. It is unfortunate that you never saw the importance of getting married when you were in your late 20s. It is true that the older the woman is the more the decline in the quality of her eggs. Also at 35, you have lost most of the eggs and as the doctor said, what has remained are low-quality eggs that cannot be of help to you. However, I am happy that your doctor has recommended IVF on the donated egg. It ’s a simple process that starts by getting attached to a fertility center. The doctor will require that you submit medical examination results. It helps to prove that you can actually carry a child. Your husband will also be required to donate the sperm so that it can be analyzed. You will also undergo some tests including AMH, LH, FSH before you can be taken into the program. You will also need to undergo HIV and Hepatitis tests. If they are negative, you will be taken into the program. You will be prescribed medication to help your endometrium to grow. The donor is stimulated and the egg retrieved. It will be fertilized in the lab and observed for 3-4 days. If it shows signs of developing it will be transferred into your womb. If nothing happens within the first 12 weeks, you will be considered pregnant and carry the baby like any other pregnant woman.

You have probably heard about using the eggs of a younger woman? The success rates for donor egg ivf are really high, although the process is very expensive. I'm 45, almost 46, newly married, no children. I did conceive naturally in April. My Reproductive Endocrinologist was very surprised and monitored my blood levels weekly. We saw a heartbeat at 6 weeks. In a younger woman this would have meant a 90% chance of the pregnancy succeeding. At my age, however, the miscarriage rates are something like 60-70%. So conceiving is only part of the struggle. I miscarried at 9 and 1/2 weeks. It was devastating. My understanding is that the donor egg process is only available to women through age 50 or so in the U.S. But women could continue to conceive with donor eggs after that if a doctor would do the process. My husband and I are just starting to try again, but if it doesn't work after 6 months or if I have another miscarriage, we will seriously consider donor eggs. We already have an adoption in process. Anyway, best wishes! You are not the only one trying to beat back the clock!
