Woman's Fertility - Is It declining?

Women who have passed the age of 35 and have not yet had children often feel that they are under time pressure if they are going to have children and are very concerned about their fertility. But it is important to understand that fertility does not decrease abruptly but that it occurs as a smooth transition.

There is no magical age after which it is suddenly impossible to conceive. That's how biology doesn't work.

Statistics show that 82 percent of all couples will have a child within one year and 90 percent after two years when the woman is between 35 and 39 years. These numbers are not that different from the numbers for women between the ages of 19 and 26, with 92 percent having a child within one year and 98 percent having a child within two years.


In general, fertility is good, and the most important thing is to make an individual assessment of the individual woman's fertility and advise on her situation.

Although the risk of high blood pressure and premature birth increases with age, the vast majority of pregnancies - even in women over 40 - are completely without complications.

Most pregnant women experience having a few pregnancy genes especially up to term. Both body and psyche respond to the changed conditions, and pregnancy can be perceived as more stressful the older you are, simply because the body is more worn out.

But if you lead a healthy lifestyle where you stay in good shape, eat healthy, get some sleep and take good care of yourself, a pregnancy can go completely smoothly, whether you are 25 or 40 years old. 
The average age of first-born babies in Denmark is 29 years old, and this has been the last many years.
