Diagnose and treat fertility killing diseases like diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis. Devise a healthy diet and exercise routine. Get fertility tests done to check ovarian follicles. Indulge in safe sex to avoid gonorrhea, chlamydia, and other such ailments that may cause infertility. Take multivitamins rich in folic acid and avoid smoking.

When you are at the mid-30s and you don’t have a baby, the fear of losing the chance of conceiving after the 40s will haunt you for sure. Moreover, off late, every new article that comes up relating to infertility suggest that with every passing of the year the female fertility drop.

Let’s put it in statistics. Women reach their reproductive peak in their 20s, and by age 35, the risk of infertility bumps up to 20%. But considering the fact that every individual have a different biological clock, some women can get pregnant easily even at their 40s.

How To Preserve Your Fertility Even After 40?

Be Healthy

To maintain fertility after 40, the first thing that you should do is to be in good shape medically. Fertility killing diseases like diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or endometriosis—under control; diagnosing and treating STDs; and devising a healthy diet and exercise plan.

Fertility Tests

All women are born with a certain number of eggs, and they lose them over their reproductive life span. At some point, about 10 years before the onset of menopause, the number drops to a level where your fertility is compromised. But there are fertility tests that can gauge how many eggs are still sitting on the bench waiting for their turn at bat. The best ones are an ultrasound to count the number of follicles in your ovaries and a blood test to check your hormone levels at certain points in your cycle.

Safe Sex

If you contract an STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia and it goes untreated, it can lead to a serious condition called pelvic inflammatory disease, which can scar the fallopian tubes, causing infertility. So get tested regularly—and make sure your partners do, too.

Take Vitamins

Every woman of reproductive age even if you’re not actively trying to get pregnant should take a multivitamin containing folic acid  as it improves fertility by stimulating ovulation and giving an embryo essential proteins needed for survival.

Important note: these are the basic things that you should avoid as they are considered as the trigger to infertility.

– Smoking cigarettes
Chemotherapy or radiation
– Diseases of the ovaries

if couple want children desperately and if they can't conceive normally they chose IVF ...provided they have their own eggs,healthy uterus with a normal or healthy endometrium ,if women doesn't possess healthy uterus they need surrogacy ,it's a head ace and also costly process compared to IVF...........other wise few go for egg or sperm donors if they won't possess them ,(but i don't like it or ready to accept it nor my husband ) .their want for children makes them to do so.....of all according to me for a couple their own children with their genes and blood if they possess is first best than any body else as i am a mother ,i know it........

If you have a choice why not take it. Trust me if you don't and you would like to try for a child, if you don't take this option it may be TOO LATE

Nothing like that ,ovarian cysts suggests that ones ovaries are age ing ,there are chances of conceiving again with proper diagnosis as early as possible if again one wants to conceive..

im a 46year Maori/Spanish/European descendant and I am pregnant again and it is likely that i am carrying twins or triplets, and this time around it is a lot different from my recent pregnancy when i was 40 and giving birth was no problem and i was induced two and a half weeks early and it only took 9 and a half hours for me to give birth to my son who is now 6years.  so i don't have too many problems with this pregnancy, as i have been through it all before and look forward to giving birth to my 5th lot of babies, as i do have eldests sons who are in there early 20's to late 20's, and i care all the same for them all. my 6year son is reacting heavily to the pregnancy, and once i give birth to his baby siblings, he will calm down. i find that keeping myself hydrated and eating well and being safe is sustaining my pregnancy and i am aware that my babies are healthy, and it is taking a toll on my body for now, but in due time once i give birth i can focus on taking care of my babies, my other children, myself and my husband will hopefully help me more, and prioritise his energies around our whanau, instead of wasting too much of his energy on the internet online trader demo site.  Its a matter of what you know, how well you look after yourself during pregnancy and rests, hydration, sufficient food intake and output, exercise, and fitting in other errands and chores and tasks. amen. its working for me and my whanau.

Let the female body do what it does. Whether 14 or 60, if the reproductive organs are working, let them work. Every female in the world is not made to have babies all in the same age rage. Before 20 or after 40 is a personal choice. Let it be!

For a women it is best to conceive before 30yrs of age ,next better option before 35, further before 40 .......but after 40 yrs of age it is highly risky and for some it is dangerous and for some may be impossible these days due to almost reduced follicle count or due to menopause .......even after 35 the egg quality is not guaranteed as good due to high risk of ovarian cysts in some ... .........

I was 36 when I got pregnant with my last kiddo and I did the down syndrome test and it said I will most likely have a downs baby. Then the specilist said over 30 your chances of having a baby with health issues are high.

Because at 35 I haven't been presented the opportunity yet. And I still want a family. I'm not going to give up on the idea yet. And presently I'm healthier now mentally and physically than I was at 16 or even 28. Some of us don't see 40 as old age when we take care of ourselves

You know becoming mother or father after marriage is a great gift .......one can raise others kids that is different story ...but raising their own ones whom they gave birth is a totally different feel one need to enjoy themselves as mother and father......
