In brief: Lower

Conception rates steadily decline after 29 yrs, at 40 they are less than half of those in their 20s.
The miscarriage rate is also higher at 40, being almost 30%. If you have not gotten pregnant after 6 months of trying, please see a specialist as each month may make a difference in your 40s.
