Is There A Right Biological Age For Women To Conceive?

Is There A Right Biological Age For Women To Conceive?

Is there a right biological age for women to conceive?

Once a girl starts having her periods, theoretically her biological body is ready to bear a progeny. There is a subtle phase when the physical body transits gradually from being a girl to a woman through the pubertal years. This preparatory phase lasts for three-four years and the growth of the inner organs is complete within two-three years of initiation of periods.

This means that starting fifteen-sixteen years onwards, a girl can achieve pregnancy and this is given to her by nature. In fact, the best pregnancy outcomes are achieved from the age of eighteen to twenty five years, as the body is biologically best prepared with maximum number of eggs in the ovaries and the hormones surging.

But, there is a lot of hue and cry when it comes to deciding the right age for pregnancy. Many women are concerned about their child-bearing abilities once they cross over to their late twenties and thirties. But, worry not ladies. We have all the answers for you, right here, for all your pregnancy queries and worries. So, read on.

Thirty and still struggling with your career?

It is a common scenario these days that your career woes may continue longer than you anticipated. Past the age of thirty, the ovaries start to lose out on good quality eggs and this decline in the egg quality and numbers speed up after the age of thirty-five years. So, one must make an informed choice between conceiving well in time and settling their career past a certain age.

In fact, the age of thirty-five years is considered as a watershed line after which pregnancy rates and fertility outcomes decline drastically. Also, as a woman's age goes past thirty five, irrespective of how much she exercises or is fit, her chances of bearing an abnormal child increases. This happens due to natural ageing of her eggs and it increases her chances of producing a mentally challenged child among other things.

The good news is that most of these disorders can be detected through appropriate tests and ultrasounds during pregnancy, so it possible to know about them before delivery. The sad news is that it is not possible to totally prevent these problems in the baby, except to conceive at the right age.

Forty plus did you miss the bus totally?

Well, thanks to technology and artificial reproductive techniques, even forty plus women can have a fair chance to conceive. But age is a big factor in deciding the success rates and outcomes of these procedures.

With increasing age, the success rates of ivf (in vitro fertilisation) become poorer, miscarriage rates increase and possibilities of poor outcomes in the baby increase. You may even be asked to get eggs from a younger woman (ovum donation) to counter these problems, which may imply that the baby is not totally yours genetically.

Hi, you and your husband need to undergo some tests. After the test reports it's possible to tell. Basic tests like husband's semen analysis and your pelvic ultra sound and hormonal assay.

If the bleeding is like usual menstrual flow then it can not be pregnancy. If bleeding is less and in the form of spotting, it can be implantation bleeding of pregnancy. So as she missed her date by 7 days, please get urine pregnancy test done asap.

In an occasional cycle spotting may occur without any serious reason, or it may be related to ovulation that is early than usual. If it happens again then you need to see a doctor.
