Female Age & Infertility
Take Proactive Measures to Protect Your Fertility at Palm Beach Fertility Center
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.
Age-Related Infertility in Palm Beach
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:
- Women are born with a finite number of egg-containing follicles that dissipate
with every menstrual cycle, through ovulation and atresia, beginning at
puberty and ending at menopause.
- Maintaining good health habits, including staying in shape and eating nutritious
foods, will not mitigate the egg aging process.
- Egg quality diminishes as a woman ages. Genetic abnormalities are more
common and the risk for infertility and miscarriage increases with the
passing of time.
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.
