Age and fertility

The most significant factor reducing fertility is the aging of the egg cells. There is also a decrease in male fertility with age, but the changes are slow.

Modern research methods allow for investigating the underlying factors that affect fertility and thus create naturally better conditions for fertility. A pregnancy that has begun in good conditions is also important for the future health of the child to be born. 

When does fertility start declining?

Fertility decreases with age. Half of women aged 35 already have a reduced chance of getting pregnant. Because of this, it may be useful to check the situation and correct any disturbances even before trying to get pregnant. You do not need to be worried about your fertility if you are under 30 years of age, in basic health and do not suffer from any latent symptoms of primary disease, your periods are regular and you live healthfully and in a regular and calm rhythm.

In some cases, the causes of impaired fertility are clear and it is advisable to address the situation without delay. Sometimes, diagnosing an underlying disease or, for example, changing your lifestyle is enough to start a pregnancy without any fertility treatments. 

Infertility and fertility can be studied in several ways. The fertility advice service makes it possible to carry out, for example, an examination after a miscarriage. Fertility can be tested with an AMH test, which indicates the functional condition of the woman’s ovaries.
