A 30-year-old female asked:

Can you still get pregnant at 35 years old?

Yes: 35 years of age does not preclude pregnancy. It may be slightly more difficult to become pregnant. Allow six months of trying and then seek help if no other medical issues are present. Also if the ovulation and menstrual cycles are regular then the six-month interval is reasonable. If the menstrual cycles are irregular then seek help much sooner.

Yes : You're considered ama (advanced maternal age). I have a lot of patients above this age & a lot of friends pregnant beyond this age. It's not a problem if in good health & with good prenatal care. Slightly higher risk of chromosomal abnormalities but also higher chance of twins. See a good OB & good luck to you. Remember to take extra folic acid, start before you conceive.

Yes.: As long as you have not stopped your cycles completely and are in menopause, you still can release eggs with every cycle and, if the timing is right, become pregnant.

Definitely: Women can become pregnant as long as they ovulate. Many women in their early 40s can still get pregnant the usual way. True that it gets more difficult as women age. However, to my knowledge the oldest woman to get pregnant was age 63-years, by ivf, carrying a baby for her daughter who was unable to do so.

The chances are: Becoming slim by age 44 to have a child naturally. But, i was almost 44 when i had my last child (naturally). The risk for misscarriages, health problems for the baby and health problems for the mother is much higher at this age. Most women aren't able to become naturally pregnant at this age.

Not great: Unfortunately the chances of conception after the age of 40 is less than 10% per cycle. The chances of miscarriage increases from approximately 15 to 20 % to about 30 to 50% per pregnancy. The chances of having a genetic abnormality is much higher also. Have your doctor evaluate your ovarian reserve.
