Fertility ?'s: At age 41, it is statistically much more difficult to achieve pregnancy for several reasons. Ovulation provides an available egg but the age of the egg may prevent full function. Another problem may be blocked tubes. Ask your gyn about a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) which forces sterile fluid into your tubes, to open them (leading cause of infertility).
