Today, for many women, the most appropriate age to have children starts around their thirties and does not stop at 40 years old. You may be over 35 years old and have no children yet. For you, monitoring is of primary importance.

  • The reasons why pregnancies are sometimes late are multiple: couples stabilize and marriages contract later. In addition, it is important for many of us to consolidate our work situation before becoming a mother. The increasing rate of divorce is also a factor in late births: many men and women, after a first marriage, want to have a child with their new partner.

The years of maximum fertility of the woman

  • The probability of being pregnant decreases with age. The oocyte stores undergo an aging process, their ripening does not work as well at 35 years as at 25.
  • The cycles without ovulation are more frequent, the eggs are fewer. The female embryo has 2 million eggs. At birth, they are still 400,000, but more than 35,000 when the woman reaches 35 years. On the other hand, the fertilized egg attaches more rarely to the lining of the uterus or stops growing. Chromosome abnormalities that lead to miscarriages occur more frequently, even before pregnancy has been noticed.
  • It is at 24 years old that a woman is most likely to be quickly pregnant. At 35, the probability of pregnancy is reduced to about 10% per cycle. Naturally, the differences between individuals are great. The actual fertility of a woman also depends on her state of health, and psychic factors also play a role.
