Rising number of twins and triplets among mothers in their 40

  1. 1. Having a multiple birth is the single greatest health risk associated with assisted reproductive fertility treatment. Higher multiple maternity rates was linked to women turning to IVF to start a family, which is more likely to lead to twins or triplets because of more embryos being transferred. Availability of good fertility education and monitoring is must for women’s delaying their motherhood to late forties with the help of in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Fertility & IVF After Age 40, Older Women & Infertility - Rising number of twins and triplets among mothers in their 40 - Likelihood of having twins or more at the age of 40 - Your age and fertility - IVF Treatment for Older Women - Age and Female Infertility, Egg Supply and Embryo Transfer - Importance of age in Fertility Education and Monitoring - When It Comes to Fertility, Age does Matter - Successful IVF for older women with Indira IVF - Health risk associated with late pregnancy - Rising Number of Multiple Births to Mothers above 40 - Effect of ageing over the conception of pregnancy - Fertility treatments and the chance of having multiple pregnancies - Age and Female Infertility, Fertility treatment after 40 Assisted reproduction technology is a safe and effective way to build a family. Having a multiple birth (twins, triplets or more) is the single greatest health risk associated with assisted reproductive fertility treatment. Females are delaying their motherhood nowadays. The number of women giving birth after turning 40 has risen steadily in recent years, with multiple births most likely amongst the over-45s. As per the office of the National Statistics, the number of multiple births to women over 40 has risen sharply in the last 30 years. These change is because of the fact that more and more women are becoming carrier oriented, they want to be emotionally and financially strong, have not found their perfect partner or are facing treatments for cancer or ovarian failure.
  2. 2. The aging of the egg supply has a powerful effect on the chances that an assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedure will result in pregnancy and a healthy baby. Women aged 40 or older may face problems in conceiving for the first time or after their previous delivery. Obvious reason is the quality of the egg and the number of eggs. As women gets older the number and quality of egg cells that are produced by the ovaries declines. As women wait longer to have children, more couples have fertility problems due to declining egg quality, and other issues that are more common in older women. Many couples end up needing advanced treatments such as IVF, in vitro fertilization to overcome this age related decline. Age related infertility and difficulty in conceiving can cause great emotional distress to couples. In Vitro Fertilization treatment an option Available for Age Related Fertility Problems IVF comes to the rescue of infertile couples facing age related problems. Many fertility doctors recommend that women over about the age of 38 that are infertile should have aggressive fertility treatments and proceed to in vitro fertilization sooner before fertility potential in her is lost. Older women often prefer to move on to IVF after a few IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination)s have failed.
  3. 3. Age Limit for In Vitro Fertilization All clinics have an upper age limit after which they will not do IVF with the woman's own eggs. Most IVF centers will attempt IVF using the female partner's eggs until about age 43-45. There is not a substantial decline in success by age of the recipient woman with donor egg IVF. Donor Egg IVF in women’s up to 48 years is successful. In an IVf treatment embryos are transferred into the mother’s uterus for fertilisation for successful pregnancy to occur. Placement of multiple embryos carries the risk of multiple pregnancies. More than one embryo is transferred to get optimum result from ivf cycle. While in vitro fertilisation (IVF) can potentially help many women conceive, much like unassisted conception, it is far less successful as women gets older. The live birth rate for women under 35 undergoing IVF is 31%, but the success rate is less than 5% for women over 42. This is because the quality of the eggs harvested in assisted techniques such as IVF deteriorates with age. These techniques stimulate the release of more egg cells but cannot compensate for the effects of reproductive ageing on egg quality. That is the reason why more than one embryos are transferred for successful pregnancy.
  4. 4. Women are more likely to give birth to twins if they have fertility treatment. There is no substantial decline in success by age of the recipient woman with donor egg IVF. It is to be remembered that the age of the eggs is very important and the age of the uterus carrying the embryos is not important. Women delaying have children into their forties has seen a rise in the number of twins and triplets. Higher multiple maternity rates were linked to women turning to IVF to start a family, which is more likely to lead to twins or triplets because of more embryos being transferred. Multiple Births Put Mothers at Risk The single biggest risk of fertility treatment is multiple pregnancies. It increases the risk of stillbirth, neonatal death and disability in children born. Multiple births are hard on mothers. Women pregnant with multiple children are three to seven times more likely to have complications, such as anemia, hypertension, and gestational diabetes. They are also more likely to go into premature labour and to require a Caesarean section. After the babies are born, they are more likely to experience problems like high blood pressure, endometriosis, bleeding, infections and mental health problems (e.g. depression, social isolation) than mothers of singletons. Women planning late pregnancy must take certain precautions and measures. These include an awareness of the risks of genetic disorders and the screening tests available, ensuring any medical conditions are managed and stable (for
  5. 5. example, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity) and ensuring that folic acid and vitamin supplements are taken around the time of conception. A woman's health should be as optimal as possible prior to pregnancy, which means maintaining a healthy weight and eating a balanced diet, taking regular exercise, limiting alcohol and not smoking. On average, one in five IVF pregnancies are a multiple pregnancy compared to one in 80 for women who conceive naturally. With approximately 13,000 IVF babies being born each year this contributes significantly and disproportionately to the national multiple birth rates and presents a significant public health concern. Women's liberation brings many advantages to women. However, as women delay childbearing, society has not educated us about this fertility decline. The increase in twins has slowed over the past decade, possibly because fertility treatments have become more refined. The objective of infertility treatment is the birth of a healthy child. In a small percentage of patients, especially in women’s with increased age of 40 or more, treatment results in multiple pregnancy that may place the mother and the babies at increased risk for an unhealthy outcome. Since multiple pregnancies and
  6. 6. their complications are an inevitable risk of fertility therapies, education about these risks is crucial prior to ART treatment. Ultimately, prevention is the key to reducing the risk of multiple pregnancies. Assisted reproduction can only partly compensate for age and age-related decline in fertility, thus a good fertility education and monitoring program would facilitate the early referral of people seeking help to conceive to fertility specialists.
