I am 39 years old and want to get my tubes untied, what are my chances of getting pregnant again?

Ok: Success of a tubal reversal depends on three things: age of the patient and at 39 you are still ok, skill of the surgeon and length of tubal segments remaining. In my experience, the "bands" are the easiest to reverse and give you the best success rates. Ivf is also an option but generally is more expensive. It is a choice. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm 18 years old I have taken contraceptive pill 3 times, will this effect my ovaries or will I get low chance in getting pregnant?

Unanswerable: Unfortunately I am not sure what you are really asking. If you are taking your birth control as prescribed you can assume you are protected from pregnancy after the first month on the pills. The birth control does affect your cycles and ovulation. But, you could still get pregnant after only taking three of the pills in the pak. ...Read more

I'm over 45 years old. What are my chances of getting pregnant?

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. ...Read more

I'm 37 years old and never been pregnant. I'm now ready for a baby and no luck. What are my chances of getting pregnant if I see a specialists?

Very good: Its hard to quote you a precise likelihood of conceiving without knowing what the cause is- but the infertility specialists have many modalities to treat infertility once the testing is completed. You should pursue sooner rather than later, as aging does make it harder to conceive and higher risks of miscarriage, genetic defects and pregnancy complications. ...Read more

I'm 32 years old and it being a year trying to get pregnant, I want to know if hysteroscopy can help me getting pregnant?

Yes: Hysteroscopy can definitely help you with evaluation of your ability to conceive. Sometimes there are septations or tissue curtains in the uterus that prevent pregnancy from occurring and a hysteroscopy can detect that. Also, at hysteroscopy, the tubes can be evaluated to make sure there is flow or patency of the tubes (combined with laparoscopy). If you've been trying for a year, I recommend ...Read more

Pregnancy older: Women in their fifties can become pregnant, although less often, so some form of contraception is needed.

I would consider consistent condom use to be the most natural un-drug option which is probably enough for an older couple.

I would consider an IUD to be the most natural "hands off" contraception.

I would consider other natural options to be taking your chances. Abstinence? ...Read more

Depends: There are many ways to burn the fallopian tubes and the chance of success will depend on the number of places burned and amount of tube burned. Traditionally, burning of the tubes is three burns of 1 cm that are 1 cm apart. The larger the amount of tube destroyed the lower chance of success. The rate can vary from 10-70% depending upon how the tubes were burned. ...Read more

I am 43 years old, I still have a period every month, can I still get pregnant or am I to old? Can recreational drug use also be the cause of not getting pregnant if both partners are using? I don't take birth control and I have had the same partner for t

Pregnant at 43: Yes you can still get pregnant at 43. You likely do not ovulate on a regular, consistent basis even with regular periods, but you most certainly can still get pregnant. Drug use may affect fertility. You do not want to be using drugs in preconception or pregnancy timeframes for BOTH your health and that of your unborn child. ...Read more

I started taking centrum for women. Will this increase my chances of getting pregnant? I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years.

NO: The vitamins will not increase your chances of pregnancy, but a good prenatal vitamin with Folic Acid will decrease the chances of your baby having a neural tube defect such as spina bifida. Keep having unprotected sex often mid cycle when you ovulate (always 14 days before your period) to increase your chances. If no results persist, see fertility dr. Best wishes. ...Read more

Possible: Success depends are several things- age of the patient. At 40, it might take a little longer; skill of the surgeon; and length of tubal segments remaining. It the segments are to short, they may not reach the overt to be able to put u an egg. Also make sure that there are no other causes for why you are not conceiving. First thing to do is an hsg, or x-ray, to document your tubes are open. ...Read more

What are my chances of getting pregnant if I had 2 miscarriage, first at age 18 now at age21.took 3 years to fall pregnant but miscarried super early?

Getting/keeping PG?: Getting pregnant won't be the problem, rather pregnancy retention will be. With 2 subsequent miscarriages, there is suspicion that there is some time of genetic combination or cervical problem initiating the miscarriages. Talk to your OB GYN MD about this issue prior to getting pregnant again for any possible correctable measures. ...Read more

Not zero: The risk of pregnancy with any given act of intercourse is difficult to calculate in general. It depends on so many other health issues and the Patient's regularity of periods. The general rule is… if the patient is having regular periods on her own, without hormones, then there is a chance of pregnancy. ...Read more

Why do women have a hard time getting pregnant after turning 35 years old?

Why do women have a hard time getting pregnant after turning 35 years old?

Fertility: 35 is not really a magic number; the risk of infertility and pregnancy abnormalities and complications increases with age in general. It's just that 35 is a number that we use that equates the risk of a genetic abnormality with the risk of the test used to diagnose it (amniocentesis). Women are born with a lump sum of eggs that decreases with each menses. It's expected for fertility to drop. ...Read more

Had an ablation in 2002, never any bleeding am 49 years old, odds of getting pregnant?

Had an ablation in 2002, never any bleeding am 49 years old, odds of getting pregnant?

Very Low: The aim of ablation is to destroy the issue in the uterus so that your bleeding stops. And for you that worked. So unless a fertility specialist can surgically try to reverse the ablation (and it can take several attempts) you will not be able to conceive, no matter what fertility treatment you receive. It can be attempted if the uterus is fixed. ...Read more

I'm 38 years old with 3 children 1 miscarage my youngest child is 13 I'm not on birthcontroll and I'm not getting pregnant?

Harder with age: Well, the last time you gave birth, you were in your twenties. Once you reach 30 years old, it progressively gets harder and harder to get pregnant. I believe the standard of care is try for 6 months, and if still unsuccessful, then get tested by fertility doc. Also, the male should be tested. Could be a change in his sperm count with age (assuming same man, but I don't judge). Don give up! ...Read more
