The reproductive potential of a woman declines after 40. So, chances of natural conception reduce with age. Delaying in pregnancy can be due medical reasons or lifestyle which can be a leading cause of ovarian aging. Women are born with millions of eggs but with age, the quality & number of eggs become less. But if natural conception is not happening due to age factor then a patient must go for a fertility checkup.
How pregnancy can be achieved in 40’s?
Achieving pregnancy after 40’s needs a healthy lifestyle. Taking good care of health, eating a healthy diet, and regular exercise can improve the chance of your pregnancy. Since the age is the major factor so if a woman has aged more than 40 yrs & trying for a baby without any success then the patient should seek the advice of a fertility doctor. The infertility factor can either be associated with male or female. So it is important to know the cause. In women, the problem can be blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, infections, fibroids etc. In males, the problems can be with semen sample like, Azoospermia, oligospermia, Globozoospermia etc. IVF treatment for such patients is the only answer to achieve a successful pregnancy.
If a couple is undergoing IVF treatment patient must undergo necessary investigations to make a correct diagnosis. In women, blood investigation is performed to check the hormonal levels – Estrogen, progesterone, LH levels, AMH level (check ovarian reserve), followed by Ultrasound to monitor any fibroid or lesions etc. Whereas, in male blood tests for viral markers, semen analysis & culture is done.
