Hello, thank you for the access that we have on doing questions. I am asking when its the best age for me to get pregnant? I am 29 years old

I'm 36 years old trying to get pregnant but I'm concerned about having a Down syndrome because of my age how at risk I will be if I conceived?
For giving birth:
To a child with DS your risk is 1:275. At 16 weeks gestation your risk of having a fetus with DS is 1:200. This is assuming there is no FH of Down Syndrome.
These numbers are approximations based on no other risk factors. They all, however, calculate your risk of having a child without DS at greater than 99 percent. ...Read more

Maybe: If you are still having regular cycles you are likely ovulating & could achieve and carry a pregnancy.Remember any pregnancy has at least 4-5% risk of an unexpected outcome and your age will add another 1-2 % as an increase in risk for chromosome defects. Your basic health is also a significant factor. However, many women today are having successful pregnancies at that age & you could be one. ...Read more
If a 14 year old was trying to get pregnant, and they never did, does that mean they can't because of age, or eggs? Or is it just really hard to get?
Hard & dangerous: Higher risk of potentially fatal (you or baby) toxemia of pregnancy, premature delivery, slight increase on Down syndrome birth, all make pregnancy at 14-15 a bad idea. Even after a woman's body reaches full maturity (body+ brain at 22) it can take up to a year to get pregnant with a healthy system. Motherhood is a wonderful goal in life, but should not put you or the baby at risk. ...Read more

Yes: 35 years of age does not preclude pregnancy. It may be slightly more difficult to become pregnant. Allow six months of trying and then seek help if no other medical issues are present.

There is no right: Or wrong time, only when you are ready mentally and physically and how many children you want.

Just try. Don't wait: While getting pregnant at 35 is more difficult that at 25, the process is the same. Be in the same place and time with your partner during your most fertile time period.

Try for 3-6 mo. If not preg get help. ...Read more
