    If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for a year or even more, and still have not been successful at getting pregnant, then you may be having some fertility issues. But before jumping to conclusions or giving up, here are some information from WebMD that may give you an idea:

    "Age is an important factor if you are trying to decide whether to get testing and treatment for fertility problems. A woman is most fertile in her late 20s.

    After age 35, fertility decreases and the risk of miscarriage goes up.

    If you are younger than 35, you may want to give yourself more time to get pregnant.
    If you are 35 or older, you may want to get help soon.

    In cases of fertility problems:

    About 50 out of 100 are caused by a problem with the woman's reproductive system camera.gif. These may be problems with her fallopian tubes or uterus or her ability to ovulate (release an egg).

    About 35 out of 100 are caused by a problem with the man's reproductive system. The most common is low sperm count.

    In about 10 out of 100, no cause can be found in spite of testing.

    About 5 out of 100 are caused by an uncommon problem."​

    Also, before going to a specialist, ask yourself, have you tried those basic and simple DIYs that can increase your chances of success such as fertility awareness and basal body temperature checks?

    these are great tips, @HappyMum. But as partners, we dads should also be aware and have ourselves checked. not to mention to keep healthy! :)

    Thank you for this information! I am near to reaching 30 and I am not sure if I want to get pregnant again since I have 3 boys and had a very traumatic miscarriage. But this is a good information for those who are planning to build a family. It's really nice to plan ahead and really consider age.
     
  4. Ohh, this is nice. That is why it is always best to raise a family while you are in your late 20's and early 30's. As we grow older, out body becomes weaker as well.

    Yup, our family doctor told us these too when we were still planning ahead. She said it is possible for older women above 30s to get pregnant, but there can be risks to develop complications..

    This is true. My friend who is in her mid 40's wants to have another child and they've been trying for more than 2 years now and they are still trying until now. I would have to agree with the age.

    Good tips. My friend who is 38 got through pregnancy with a healthy baby, but during her pregnancy, she compared it with her first child at age 26, and she said that her latest pregnancy gave her worse backaches, worse morning sickness and worse everything as she said..

    What, even worse than the usual? The backaches and leg pain and nausea was so bad already, I didn't think it would get any worse!
