Somewhat a good read nonetheless

Postby Tee2876 » Mon Feb 03, 2014 4:06 pm

Short and sweet, I've been TTC almost 3 yrs so this info still gives me hope being almost 38

What are the chances of conceiving beyond age 35?

Increasingly, many women are delaying childbirth until well into their thirties. Women who are trying to conceive beyond the peak reproductive years of their twenties, however, are often very concerned about their conception chances. While it is true that fertility rates decline with age across virtually all human populations (Wood 1989; 102; O’Connor et al 1998; 127) and the time to conception is generally longer for women who are past their mid-twenties, (Dunson et al 2002) the chances of conceiving within a year or two are fairly good for women in their late thirties, especially when intercourse is timed well in the fertile period.


The cumulative conception rate for women aged 35-39 is 60% after one year of trying and 85% at two years (Taylor 2003). While this may not sound so promising when you want to have a baby right now, these figures may be higher for women who are able to identify their fertile time and focus intercourse within the fertile window. Time to conception is considerably reduced when intercourse is focused within the most fertile window of the menstrual cycle (Hilgers et al 1992).

Thanks Tee. I too have read that all is not lost in your late 30's which is what many would have us believe. I am 39 and starting my 5th cycle ttc#3 but it feels like forever. I must say, I've been questioning my ttc mission a bit lately but the quote at the end of your post grounded me. How profound and how true.
[i]TTC one more precious bundle since Oct 2013 with my now 41yr old eggs, and severe mfi :(

Time for a new FS and a kick a*s protocol.

I got pregnant naturally with twins when I was 35, age 36 at delivery. I also got pregnant naturally at age 41, age 42 at delivery. I am now 44 and ttc again. Month #7
I refuse to believe that I am too old. That was an encouraging article Tee. Not many out there for women ttc over age 35.
