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.

Good! but consider..: Most pregnancies for women in this age group are uneventful and have a good outcome, but the odds of having a baby with a genetic defect increase as you get older. The risk of having a baby with a genetic abnormality such as down's syndrome rises from 2 per 1, 000 births at ages 35-39 years, to 4 per 1, 000 at age 40-44 years up to 14 per 1, 000 at age 45 years or over.
