TTC in your 40's
I conceived my 5th baby when I was 40 and gave birth just before my 41st birthday. However studies show that a healthy woman at age 40 only has about a 5% chance of conceiving each month as compared to a woman aged 30, who has about a 20% chance of conceiving each month. (American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Age and fertility: A guide for patients. Birmingham, Alabama: American Society for Reproductive Medicine; 2003)
I know that I did not see good signs of fertility every month at that age, but there was a month when I saw good signs of fertility, and that's the month we conceived.
There are many things you can do to turn back your biological clock so that your chances of conceiving are higher, even if you're in your early 40's.
Are you thinking about having a baby in your 40's. What questions or concerns do you have?
