  1. 1. ********************************************Check out more pregnancy information atwww.actnowpregnancy.com******************************************** Odds Of Getting Pregnant And Age. Correlation? The odds of getting pregnant decline with age. A woman has the greatest probability ofgetting pregnant in her early twenties. As she gets older, her pregnancy chance declines also.Listed below are some information about pregnancy and age correlation.1. For ages early to mid-thirties - a woman in general will be about 15-20% less fertile.2. For ages mid to late thirties - fertility will generally decline by up to 50%.3. For women ages early to mid-forties - fertility declines by over 90%. What causes the decline and why do the odds weigh heavy on an older woman? Studieshave indicated the reasons for fertility decline are related to the quality of the womans eggs aswell as the quantity. 400 fully developed eggs (usually one per month) is produced by awoman during her lifetime. These eggs are capable of becoming implanted in the uterus andcausing pregnancy. As these eggs get used up over thirty years or so and estrogen productionslows so that the uterine and vaginal linings are no longer properly stimulated, pregnancybecomes more difficult.Males have a role in this also. Studies have found that the probability of causing pregnancy fora man in his late thirties declines by about 40% versus during his twenties to mid-thirties. How can a woman increase her odds of getting pregnant? Here are some tips:• Know your fertile time - ovulation generally happens about 14 days before your next periodbegins. For women with cycles of 28 days, that could make day #14 you are most fertile forgetting pregnant (day #1 being the first day that your last period began).• Monitor your basal body temperature - the slight elevations in your body temperature uponawakening each day will signal your most fertile times.• Monitor your cervical mucus - ovulation will cause a change in the appearance andconsistency of cervical mucus. Check yourself each day and youll be able to see the egg-white-like vaginal discharge that indicates ovulation and your most fertile time.
  2. 2. • Keep a positive attitude - the way you feel is directly affected by your attitude. There hasntbeen scientific study to correlate your attitude to increased chance of pregnancy but you willfeel better, have a better outlook on life and can endure the feelings of inadequacy.• Adopt a healthy lifestyle - the odds of getting pregnant increase the more healthy you are.Healthy living includes a sensible diet, nutritional supplements, adequate quality sleep,managing stress, some exercise and weight management.Planning to start a family or getting pregnant?
