after 35 and 40
all over the world are deferring having their children until they are
35 or even 40. There are many reasons for making this decision and
these reasons are usually very sensible economically. Unfortunately,
delaying having children until you are older usually makes becoming
pregnant very difficult and it also increases all the risk
factors. Fertility itself starts to decline dramatically after
age 35. Your fertility is related to the number of eggs remaining in
your ovary. At the same time that the number of eggs drops to a
critical level, the risk of miscarriage increases. I have been
researching how and why this happens and have discovered that low egg
numbers change your whole body and I explain the latest results in
'Starting your family after 30'.
There are also
increased risks for your baby.
In order to help women
in their 30's and 40's make informed decisions about their fertility
and reproduction. I want to help you and I have written an e-book to help you with your
decisions called Starting
your family after 30.
Was my age the cause of my miscarriage?
Your age has a major effect on your risk of miscarriage. If you are
aged 35 or older you are at much greater risk than your younger
'sisters'. However age interacts with other lifestyle factors and as
you age you need to place greater importance on optimising your
lifestyle. Smoking, for example, probably won't affect your fertility
when you are younger but it will certainly make it very difficult for
you to conceive normally when you are 35 or older. There are many
different 'habits' that can affect your chances of having a normal
healthy baby and you need to understand what these are and correct
them. You might not even know that these habits are bad - not because
you are ignorant but because many things are never discussed. Could you
have imagined that the way you clean your teeth could affect your baby?
The easiest way to find out all about lifestyle and miscarriage, is to
answer my on-line questionnaire
& personal report that you will find at http://www.ez-fertility.com.au.
There is a relatively small charge for answering the questionnaire and
receiving your detailed report but this unique service - which is based
on the very latest research - could save you heartache and a great deal
of money in the long run.
of age and bad habits
My recent research has
just revealed that some lifestyle habits don't matter much or at all
when you are younger but matter a great deal when you are older than
35. Like many other older women, you might look back on your life at 20
when you felt so much more fertile despite poor diet and bad habits.
Sadly this is the reality of ageing. But the news is not all bad. If
you either read Starting
your family after 30 or undertake the questionnaire on http://www.ez-fertility.com.au,
then make your 'lifestyle resolutions', you will find that your body
will respond quite quickly to the changes.
Will supplements increase fertility and
decrease the risk of miscarriage?
Up to now there has been no thorough
research on this matter however there has been considerable research
that indicates which supplements might help. This research and the
supplements are described in my book Starting
your family after 30.
