Danish research given comfort to older women seeking to have children - Women over 30 still very fertile
Monday, 22 July 2013
A new study shows that age is less important for the chance of a woman
getting pregnant than has been previously thought. Therefore According
to a new Danish-American study, there is no need to panic if you are a
woman in your late 30s and would like to be a mother.
Based on interviews and observations of almost 2,820 Danish women
between 20 and 40 years it shows that there are significant differences
in pregnancy rate among 35-40 year olds and the 20 to 24 year olds,
writes the Danish paper, Politiken.
According to the study, which followed women for 12 months,
78percent of the youngest got pregnant, compared with the oldest group
was 72percent. Therefore, among the 2820 Danish women aged 20 to 40,
the differences between the youngest and oldest group was not large
when it came to the ability to conceive, the Danish-American study
published in the study in Fertility and Sterility show.
The group of women between 30 and 34 were most fertile. There,
87 percent of the 791 women got pregnant during the year. But it might
be because according to the researchers women between 30 and 34 lived
healthier lives than the younger women.
However, age is still the most important negative factor for women's
fertility - but fertility lows is not as much as some people think.
Also pregnancies in older years involve other complications with both
mother and baby.
