Nifty ways to boost your chances of conceiving at every age
Are you tired of hearing the phrase “Your biological clock is ticking” if you are a woman of certain age who has still not started planning a family? Well, truth be told, age does play an important role in fertility. But, that does not mean that you cannot increase your chances of conceiving even if you are older than you should be when planning a baby. Here are some nifty tricks that will increase your chances of conceiving no matter what your age is:
Between the ages of 20 and 24
This is when your chance of conceiving is over 95% in a year of trying. You can boost your chances of conceiving by ensuring that you maintain your fitness levels and follow a good diet.
Between the ages of 25 and 29
This is the age when men and women may indulge in casual sex. It is best to avoid it to prevent STDs that put you at the risk of blocked fallopian tubes and other gynecological conditions.
At this age your chance of getting pregnant is 80-90% within one year of trying for a baby. You need to keep your body and mind healthy in order to increase your chances of conceiving.
Between the ages of 30 and 34
A lot of factors such as stress or hormonal balance can become obstacles in your attempt to conceive a baby. It is a good idea to get a thorough health check up to ensure that you do not have any underlying health issues.
The chances of conceiving at this age are between 70 to 80% in a year of trying. You can improve the chances by having yourself and your partner checked at a fertility clinic for any issues and to rule them out if none. You can get necessary treatment at the earliest if you are facing issues like low sperm count, quality of the eggs, issues with the fallopian tube, PCOD etc.
Between the ages of 35 and 39
This is the age when fertility tends to decrease quite fast as the number of eggs reduce with age. You also are at a higher risk of contracting various gynecological issues including fibroids and PCOS at this age.
At this age your chances of conceiving are between 50-70%. Most doctors suggest that women who do not plan to have a baby or settle down at this age could choose to freeze their eggs so they can have a baby when they are ready.
Between the ages of 40 and 45
At this age, you are at the risk of various health issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes. The chances of conceiving at this age are between 35 and 50%. Although the chances are slim, there are options like IUI and IVF that you can choose to improve your chances of having a baby.
Above 45 years of age
As you get closer to 50, you also get closer to your menopause. This is when you experience issues like lower sex drive, vaginal dryness and irregular periods that reduce the chances of getting pregnant. You have options like using donor eggs to increase the chances of getting pregnant at this age.
