With aging, factors affecting fertility are increasing. Moreover, our health is also deteriorating. Previous complaints could get worse or new diseases that affect our fertility could appear.
The main factors affecting fertility include:
- The number of functioning eggs left in ovaries. As we age, the number of viable eggs decreases. In the case of early menopause, the eggs end faster than normal.
- Menstrual cycle – as women approach menopause, the cycle becomes irregular and shorter.
- Thinning the uterine lining – over time it becomes more inhospitable to fertilized eggs.
- Separation of mucus – vaginal secretions become thicker and more hostile to sperm.
- Diseases affect the reproductive capabilities – some diseases can damage the sexual organs over time, or worsen if not threated properly – chlamydia, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis.
- Chronic diseases – some of them have a negative effect on fertility.
- The problem with weight – obesity makes difficult pregnancy.

Nowadays more and more couples postpone making children for a later period of their lives. Whether for financial reasons or simply because you have not yet met the right partner, planning a similar event at a later stage in your life has its drawbacks. Our advice is to stop waiting to step on your feet financially, because you might regret that.
As shown in the table below, women are most fertile between 20 and 24 years. As we age, the likelihood of becoming pregnant is dropping significantly, while the likelihood of infertility is increasing with the same pace. Men can remain fertile longer, age also influences their fertility, although not so dramatically.
35 years old women are half as prolific as they were 25, 40 – half the potential of their 35 years. It turns out that reaching the 30′s or early 40′s, conceiving could be much more difficult.
Most couples (92%) conceive within two years if they practice regular sex and do not use contraceptives. Under “regular” we mean every two three days.
This means that 8% of couples are not achieving pregnancy within two years. If you are over 35 years and continue to try for another year, you may become pregnant, but over the next few years, the chances begin to fall dramatically. 6% of women that are 35 years and 23% of those that are 38 will conceive after three years of regular testing.
Therefore, if it appears that you have a problem to conceive, it is better to seek help sooner rather than procrastinate. It is advisable to attempt to conceive at least one year before going to consultation, but if you are over 35 years and have trouble conceiving, get help early on.

Sometimes pregnancy comes as a surprise for parents and they are not prepared for it. If you decided that you want to have a baby and have already begun work on the questions it is not enough to only calculate the ovulation. It is important to prepare your body for this important stage of life.
What you need to do in order to be physically prepared for upcoming pregnancy?
1. Stop smoking
It is not enough to stop smoking as soon as you realize that your
pregnant. It is important to begin to cleanse your body before
you see the two bars of the test to ensure maximum health for your
future child. Furthermore, smoking reduces fertility of women
and getting pregnant will become more difficult.
2. Be careful with alcohol
Alcohol, like cigarettes, reduces the reproductive capacity of both
partners. It is no secret that its excessive use damages the body, which automatically will harm your future child. The worse case scenario could be if the conception occurs while you are under the influence of alcohol. Then there is serious risk of harming the fetus. If you are serious about having a healthy baby you should stop using alcohol to ensure that complications will not occur with your conception and pregnancy.
3. Regular sports
Active and regular exercises are necessary for everyone, not just for those
who want to conceive. To strengthen your physical condition
start playing sports before you get pregnant, because in the first months
it is not advisable to go overboard with sport. It is important to strengthen back muscles and legs, because they will be especially needed when
your belly starts to grow.
4. Balanced and appropriate arrangements for meals
Unhealthy diet can severely disrupt hormonal balance of the body and this will automatically reduce your chances to get pregnant, but on the opposite eating healthily and correctly, can significantly increase chances to conceive. You should refrain from drastic diets, as well as
overindulgence with food to not upset the balance of your body.
You should eat fresh fruit and vegetables, low fat dairy products, nuts, olive oil.
You can begin to take appropriate supplements recommended
by a doctor as well as priceless companion to every woman trying to get pregnant – folic acid.
5. Sex positions are important
While you do not believe there is meaning in what position you have sex in
times when you want to become pregnant, traditional missionary
posture is one of the best. After your partner ejaculates, it is
better to stay awhile in this position. Another good position is the so called “” “doggy style”. It is particularly suitable for women with “inverted uterus”. It would be even better if you reach orgasms, as contractions of the uterus help with the movement of sperm.
6. Calculate your ovulation precisely
Although I’m sure that you have learned well how to calculate ovulation,
it is better to make sure exactly when the special period of the month comes, since the “textbook” calculation does not always pay off. That is why you should consult with a gynecologist, and let them review and assess or to
buy ovulation test that is sold in pharmacies.
If you made unsuccessful attempts to become pregnant, it is appropriate to seek specialist one year after you started. Only after that period of time we can talk about a problem, so don’t worry
