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.

Advice for an expectant mother is plentiful to come around from family and friends. While it may be well intentional, it may not be the best advice possible. One of the things most people would advise is to avoid exercising as it may affect the health of the mother and the baby. This is in fact a very wrong advice as expectant mothers like everyone need exercise to stay fit and healthy. The only difference from normal people is that certain types of exercises may not be suitable for pregnant women and the nature of exercises may change from trimester to trimester.
Some of the best exercises during pregnancy
- Swimming: This one is in fact recommended by doctors as the best and the safest exercise for pregnant women. Swimming is beneficial because of the following reasons:
- Walking: This is one of the safest exercise during any trimester as long as you don’t over exert yourself. Walking promotes blood circulation, improves heart health and is all around a good exercise for pregnant women. The key is to invest in a good pair of shoes for walking so as to prevent the knees and legs from jarring and also to support your upper body properly.
- Stretching: In the later trimesters, it may be a little difficult to manage other exercises as your body becomes heavier and movement may bse limited. However, you can do basic stretching exercises to improve mobility and also help with circulation.
- Weight training exercises: Certain exercises which utilize the weight of your body rather than external weight can be performed easily. You can also use lighter weights to help keep muscle tone and strength. A few examples of these exercises are
- Side leg lifting: Lie on one side and lift one leg up slightly higher than hip height. You can use your forearm for balance in this case. Keep lifting the leg and hold it there for a few seconds and do the same motions a few times for repetitions.
- Curling and lifting: Sit on a chair with your back straight with 2 to 4 kilo weights in each hand and curl up your hands up to the shoulders. Sit with your legs spread apart but comfortably. Also start the curl with your fore arms at a 90° angle from your elbows.
- Yoga and meditation: Yoga is possibly one of the most well suited regimens during pregnancy. Pranayama and meditation can definitely help you be more at peace and also manage many of the changes happening in your body in a much better fashion.
