A women's fertility age gradually starts to decline after the age of 28 and becomes steeper by the time they are 36. In most cases, a women's natural ability to conceive ends ten years before menopause. However, it is still possible to conceive a child even when you are above the age of forty, are approaching menopause or have already reached menopause.
If you are wondering how then the answer is through IVF.
What is IVF?
It's the process of fertilisation that is carried out in the laboratory (in a petri-dish). The ovum from the women and the sperm from the man is collected, fused, and cultured in the lab for 2-6 days. It is then implanted back to the mother or a surrogate mother's uterus for further development of the embryo. It is a form of assisted reproductive technology.
Factors responsible for a successful IVF procedure:
Though the success rates depend on various factors. It is successful in most cases and the child is generally born healthy without any complications.
The two main factors that come into play in IVF are:
1. Maternal age: Younger couples are more likely to get pregnant than older couples through IVF. Women over the age of 41 have a higher chance of getting pregnant with a donor egg. This is because as the fertility of women starts decreasing at the age of 28 and as they approach menopause they naturally lose the ability to conceive.
2. Reproduction history: Irrespective of the age, if you have been pregnant before the chances of you getting pregnant again are higher than someone who never has.
Do not lose hope if you are not being able to conceive naturally, thanks to the scientific and technological advancements, there are various ways in which you get pregnant and bring your child to the world.
The glycemic index is a measure of food containing carbohydrates and how it can raise the level of glucose in the blood. This is essentially a process where every food is ranked based on a reference food such as white bread. A food with a high GI value increases the level of glucose in the blood compared to a food with a GI that is medium or low. Some of the common examples of food with a low GI include legumes and dried beans. Fats and meats are not included in the index due to the non-availability of carbohydrate in them.
Some common foods with a GI of 55 or less include bread made up of pumpernickel and whole wheat, muesli, oatmeal, bulgur, barley, pasta, yam, lentils, sweet potato, converted rice, corn, non-starchy fruits, and vegetables. A food set with medium GI in the range of 56 to 69 includes quick oats, basmati rice, pita bread and couscous. Some example of foods with high GI value in the range of 70 includes pineapple, russet potato, white bread, macaroni, puffed rice, corn flakes, rice cakes and melons.
What influences GI?
Since GI has nothing to do with fibre and fat, some general findings of the GI count are as follows:
When a food is processed or cooked, the GI tends to increase
More the storage time of the food, the higher is the GI. It is applicable for ready to cook food and frozen food as well.
The higher is the GI count, more the ripeness of a fruit or vegetable.
Converted food items tend to have a lower GI as compared to the original version of the food
What are the other considerations?
While the GI value gives first-hand knowledge about the type of carbohydrate a person is consuming, it is hard for any help when it comes to the amount of carbohydrate intake. Portion size, therefore, still plays an important role for patients suffering from diabetes. The GI count of a food item greatly varies when combined with food which has higher GI or lower GI for that matter. Nutritious food that is extremely beneficial for the body, tends to have a higher GI count. For instance, the GI count of oatmeal is greater than that of chocolate.
While there is no hard and fast rule for maintaining the carbohydrate count, an approach that is equally balanced between a GI count and carbohydrate count works best for a patient. Both the type of carbohydrate as well as the count of carbohydrate plays a crucial role in keeping the blood sugar level under control.
