How Age Affects Fertility
The 35-year-old is a watershed for women’s age and a dividing line for older women. Women have entered a period of rapid decline in productivity since the age of 35, and their physical fitness and affordability are not as good as before.
From middle age to middle age, the quality of women’s eggs will also decline and the probability of suffering from gynecological diseases, uterine fibroids, diabetes and other diseases is too high. Thus, it is impossible to avoid the occurrence of miscarriage and premature delivery.
Secondly, the vaginal and uterine contractility of older women decreases, and the uterine ostium is difficult to expand, leading to dystocia or hemorrhage during childbirth. Caesarean section is necessary when necessary. If there is too much blood loss, it will be shocking and life threatened.
During pregnancy, every pregnant woman may suffer from pregnancy complications such as high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, pre-eclampsia, etc., and the incidence of pregnancy complications in elderly women is much higher.
According to research statistics, the higher the maternal age, the higher the malformation rate of the fetus. Therefore, older women are more likely to have cleft lip and palate, hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, and congenital heart disease than younger women.
After a time-consuming and labor-intensive childbirth, older women need to spend more time to recover. If the postpartum care is not done well, the possibility of inflammation due to infection is extremely high.
Can older mothers be test-tube babies?
Some studies have shown that women over 40 years old have a fertility rate of only 20%; those over 45 years old have a fertility rate as low as 5%. With age, women have more and more difficulties in giving birth to children, and they may not be able to give birth in the end .
Test-tube babies are a high-tech assisted pregnancy technique. Even if you are forty, the quality of eggs is not good. With the help of test-tube babies, there is at least a 30% chance of giving birth to babies, which greatly improves the possibility of fertility for older women.
The test-tube baby will analyze the genetic material of the embryo before embryo implantation. As long as the embryo is abnormal, it will be eliminated, and only healthy embryos will be implanted into the maternal uterine cavity.
In general, the number of embryos transferred is about 1-2. With the careful selection of test-tube babies to avoid multiple pregnancies, one of the best quality embryos will be selected for implantation.
