Women who are over age 40, often know that getting pregnant takes more time and will be more difficult than getting pregnant in her 20’s or 30’s. Fertility takes a dramatic drop around age 35, and another one again around age 40. It is important to remember that while it is difficult but possible to get pregnant for a woman in her 40’s.

It is nearly impossible for women to get pregnant using their own eggs after age 45. It’s also important to keep in mind that more than half of all women in their forties will have trouble getting pregnant, and women in their forties only have about a 5 percent chance of getting pregnant in any given ovulation cycle.

getting-pregnant-takes-more-time-and-will-be-more-difficult-after-40At age forty, a woman’s chance of getting pregnant within a year is only about 40 to 50 percent, compared to around 75 percent for a woman in her thirties, so you can see that fertility takes a dramatic drop once a woman hits age 40.

By the time a woman reaches age 40, she is usually nearing the end of her egg supply, so getting pregnant at this age can be quite difficult. If you are a woman in her 40’s who wants to get pregnant, make sure to talk to your doctor or health care provider right away for the best results.

      It is highly unlikely that you can get pregnant during your monthly menstrual cycle because during your period, your body works to shed the uterine lining that it has been building up over the last month, in preparation for pregnancy. This being said, there is a small possibility of pregnancy during your period. Women often mistake slight bleeding that can occur with ovulation as their period. Unprotected sex at this time can greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Additionally, sperm can live in the female reproductive system for up to three days. Because some women ovulate at the very end of their menstrual periods, sperm may still be alive at this point, and able to fertilize an egg. Taking a home pregnancy test will help you determine if you are indeed pregnant.
