Pregnancy at age 35

PREGNANCY AT AGE 35

FACTS

  • It’s not as easy to get pregnant after age 35 as at age 25, but it’s still possible for most women.
  • Women in their early 30’s still deliver healthy babies.
  • The age 35 is essentially an age of more debate deserving of certain risks.

While these risks become slightly more likely after hitting 35 years of age, this does not mean that these risks will have a significant impact on everyone. Screenings can be carried out to check these risks. Speak to your doctor about being screened.

 

 

FERTILITY DECLINE

Women are born with all the eggs that they will ever have. When females mature, due to the declining number of remaining eggs and their reduced quality, the probability that they will get pregnant decreases.

For men, as they age fertility often delines due to declining sperm counts, motility, and volume of semen. Such combined age-related factors could make it harder for women to get pregnant.

GENETIC RISKS

Many genetic risks occur more frequently as women age during pregnancy. For example, with maternal age, the likelihood of having a baby with Down syndrome increases.

STILLBIRTH

Stillbirth is more likely in older women than younger women. Furthermore, the stillbirth rate has been shown to be higher in people having their first child and even higher in first-time moms aged 35 or older.

It is often recommended that women aged 35 and older be induced as they approach their due date due to the increased risk of gestational age stillbirth.

MISCARRIAGE

The risk of miscarriage gradually increases with the age of the mother. It is suspected that the decreasing value of female eggs is responsible for the higher miscarriage rates.

OTHER RISKS

Research comparing complications of childbirth in women age 18 to 34 years, 35 to 40 years and over, found small rises in most complications associated with pregnancy and birth with age.

CONCLUSION

The most important thing to remember is that most women can have children later in their lives.

  • Both parents should; Strive to have a healthy lifestyle.
  • See your primary care doctor for a general wellness check.
  • Talk to your gynecologist if you don’t get pregnant after six months.
