#1. Chances Of Fertility Going Into A Free Fall Post-30

The older you get, higher is the risk of a complicated late pregnancy. A woman’s body goes through various physical and hormonal changes after the age of 30. And with each passing year, there is a decline in her fertility rate. As per fertility specialist, James Goldfarb, Director of infertility services and IVF at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio, “There's a clear drop-off in fertility between ages 29 and 35, but the majority of 35-year-old women still won't have a problem. However, by 38 or 39, age becomes a big factor.”

The main reason behind this is that women in their 30s tend to ovulate less frequently, making conception harder than the women who ovulate regularly in their 20s, thus leading to a late pregnancy. According to leading fertility specialist, Sherman Silber, “Overall, in your 30s you have only 15 per cent chance of getting pregnant in any single ovulation cycle.”
