Times have changed and there is not as much pressure on women to have children at a young age like there once was. In fact, there are many different reasons why you may have waited to have a child. Many couples opt to wait to have children for many reasons, including career goals, relationship statuses, and educational timelines to name a few.
Dr. Mark Denker cites one very compelling reason to try to get pregnant before your mid- to late-30's because the odds for conceiving rapidly decline beginning at approximately age 35.
Knowing the facts about your fertility potential can help you manage your reproductive years and in some cases, take preventative steps. Occurrences of age-related infertility have increased as women wait until later in life to start a family. We can help you to discuss your future family goals and how we can achieve them, such as with fertility preservation and egg freezing.
A few important points in regards to female age and fertility to consider include:
Beyond issues with female age and infertility, women can sometimes experience premature menopause and diminished ovarian reserve that is not age-related. At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we do not believe that you are simply a statistic - you are a person and you deserve to be treated with personalized care.
You are already taking action to protect your fertility by educating yourself and deciding to take preventative steps. Dr. Mark Denker is committed to raising awareness about female age and infertility.
