Still good: Although ovulation frequency is declining after age 32, you are still capable to conceive a child. However, after age 37 not only does ovulation begin to drastically drop off, but genetic abnormalities such as Down's Syndrome become more likely. Ovulation induction may also be necessary after age 35.
