In your early 30s, your chances of getting pregnant are only slightly lower than in your late 20s, and your risk of having a miscarriage or a baby with Down syndrome is only slightly higher.
But at 35, that decline in fertility begins to accelerate.
Is 30 a good age to get pregnant?
Fertility naturally declines with age, and having a baby later in life can increase the risk for pregnancy complications. That said, there’s no “best age” to get pregnant. Just because you’re over 30 or 40 doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy baby.
At what age does it become difficult to conceive?
Women over age 35 take longer to conceive – The average time it takes a couple over 35 to conceive is 1-2 years, so try to remain positive if you do not become pregnant immediately.
At what age does fertility decline?
A woman’s peak reproductive years are between the late teens and late 20s. By age 30 years, fertility (the ability to get pregnant) starts to decline. This decline becomes more rapid once you reach your mid 30s. By age 45 years, fertility has declined so much that getting pregnant naturally is unlikely for most women.
