Easy to say/hard to: It is easy to say to get pregnant naturally at age 44, but very hard to do. Why? 1.) Ovulation is infrequent at this age 2) Early staging of menopause is very common. 3) Genetic abnormalities are very common due to aging of the sperm/egg combinations resulting in higher rates of miscarriage. Best bets are to see a Fertility GYN MD, undergo ART or IUI with ovulation induction, and pray.
