The Impact of Age on Fertility: How Age Affects Both Men and Women

For Women:

- Each woman is born with a finite number of eggs, which decrease with time.

- When women reach their late 20s and early 30s, their fertility begins to decline.

- Once you reach 35 years of age, fertility begins to decline.

- There is less than a 5% chance of a woman getting pregnant by the age of 40.

- Miscarriage and chromosomal abnormalities are more likely to occur as a woman ages.

- Pregnancy and childbirth complications are more likely to occur in women over 35 years of age.

For Men:

- In contrast to women, men are capable of producing sperm throughout their lives.

- As men age, the quality of their sperm decreases.

- There is a lower chance of men fathering a child in their 40s and 50s than at a younger age.

- The risk of genetic mutation in offspring increases with the advanced age of the father (over 40).

- Advanced paternal age is linked to an increased risk of certain health disorders in offspring, such as autism and schizophrenia.
