Your Age and Fertility

It’s no secret that age affects your fertility. Women have a limited number of eggs, and they will eventually slow down and ultimately stop. Each woman’s body is different, making it hard to predict exactly how your fertility will change over time. However, there are some patterns that can make it easier for you to plan for your family.

Your 20s

In your 20s, barring any health problems, you are in your peak fertility. For most women, menstruation in their 20s is very regular. Of course, many women in their 20s are not ready to have a baby and choose to use contraceptives. If you are taking hormonal birth control, you will need to give your ovulation cycle time to reestablish its normal cycle.


In general, fertility begins to decline around age 30 to 32. At the age of 30, the average woman’s chance of conceiving in a month is about 20%


Around the age of 35, your fertility begins to decline more quickly. Women over the age of 35 are also more likely to have stillbirths, miscarriages, and other pregnancy complications. If you are ready to start a family, the best time to conceive is before the age of 35.

40 and older

By the age of 40, most women have a significantly harder time conceiving. Only about 40% of women who hope to get pregnant after 40 are able to do so. However, if you are over 40 and have decided to have a baby (or another baby), there is still hope. Advanced in fertility treatments and in vitro fertilization are making it increasingly possible for women over the age of 35 to have healthy babies.


Fertility support is an essential part of conception, whether you are just starting out or have been trying for some time. Regular lubricants are proven to have negative effects on the fertilization process and should be avoided when you are trying to conceive. Find Where to buy HERE
