Trying to conceive after your peak

Many women today are attempting to conceive after the age of 30. This opportunity can be both exciting and perplexing. Despite some difficulties, many women in their thirties and forties can conceive. To begin, consider some of the difficulties you may encounter when trying to conceive after the age of 30.

Less frequent ovulation is the most common cause of an age-related decline in fertility. As women get older, they start having cycles where no egg is released. In a woman’s 30s and 40s, egg quality and quantity both decline. Myo-inositol, folic acid, and melatonin supplements have been shown to improve egg quality and ovarian function.

There are other reasons as well that make conceiving after 30 very difficult, like:

  • Infection or surgery that caused scar tissue around the fallopian tubes or cervix
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibroids or uterine disorders
  • A decrease in cervical fluid
  • Chronic health problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes
  • Miscarriage is more common in women over the age of 35. This is frequently caused by an increase in the prevalence of chromosomal abnormalities. Women between the ages of 35 and 45 have a 20-35% chance of miscarriage.

But now let’s look at some ways that can increase your chances of conceiving after your 30s:

Make an appointment for a pre-conception consultation: You and your doctor can go over your medical history, current medications, and overall your lifestyle. This will allow you to address any concerns you may have about trying to conceive after the age of 30.

Women over the age of 30 take longer to conceive: The average time for a couple over the age of 35 to conceive is 1-2 years, so stay optimistic if you do not become pregnant right away.

A physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy woman is more likely to conceive: Caffeine, alcohol, and smoking can all have a negative impact on fertility. Obesity and being underweight can also have an impact on fertility by interfering with hormonal function.

Observing your fertility indicators can reveal a lot about your body: Keeping track of your basal body temperature and cervical fluid levels can assist you in determining the best time to have intercourse while trying to conceive. These fertility signs can also reveal whether or not you ovulate on a regular basis. Learning about your fertility will also help you understand whether you are experiencing pregnancy signs and symptoms.

Consider performing an at-home fertility test: Over-the-counter tests are available to help screen for key factors affecting female and male fertility. This often gives couples peace of mind as they embark on their conceiving journey.

If you haven’t conceived after 6 months, speak with your doctor about the possibility of fertility testing. You may wish to seek the advice of a fertility specialist.

If you want to start a family, keep in mind that time is of the essence. The main piece of advice would be to perform a pre-conception or fertility screening early on so that any abnormalities can be addressed quickly and without unnecessary delay. A healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise will also help a woman’s fertility chances later in life and slow the decline of egg quality.
