Common Questions and Answers about Getting pregnant after 40


Avatar n tn Hello Everyone wondering if anyone has had success getting pregnant at 40 after having a Mirena. I had my Mirena (IUD) removed in December and its not August and still have been unsuccessful. I have two children although the youngest is 14. Really hoping to get pregnant. Any advice, please share. Yes, i do realize that at 40 my chances are decreasing with every second.

Avatar n tn Hi, To everyone that is scared of trying to be pregnant too soon after a D&C. I too had a m/c in March 2005, had a d&c and got pregnant 2 weeks after, as you can imagined I was extremely worried, even though we were not trying to get pregnant since my Dr. also recomended to wait al least 3 mths. I felt that my body couldn't resist the waitting period, and it didn't. I was pregnant scared... on my first visit to the Dr. I was 6 weeks and I saw the dr.

Avatar n tn We have one child together who is almost six and I have two grown children, so I did not have trouble getting pregnant in the past. I have an appointment for my annual exam Nov 12th with my gynecologist. I will be 41 next month. I am trying to research our options before I go in for this appointment. Thanks.
1021834 tn?1379295900 What you have read is true, it is typically not recommended for women over 40. The good news is I am 40 and 22 weeks pregnant with a healthy little boy (naturally conceived) and there are many women here who have been or are in the same situation. I used many different aides to help me out such as pre seed and ovulation predictors. Now, just because my experience with clomid wasn't a good one doesn't mean it won't be a good thing for you.
Avatar f tn The odds are exactly the same. It only elevates after 3 in a row. I had 5 in a row before getting pregnant this time, so that combined with now being 40 put me in a high risk catagory. Only 1% of couples will experience 3 or more miscarriages in a row. I say go for it. At 39 your odds are still good. If you have another one, don't wait. Ask for testing to see if they can determine a cause. See a good RE or an OB that specializes in high risk.

Avatar f tn I am 40 and was surprised with my pregnancy after just being married a month and a half ago. I'm 7 weeks with my 5th child. I'm very excited. My last is 8.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any advice for me? I am 40 and just found out last week I am pregnant again. My husband and I only have one daughter and she is 9. My husband also has two other daughters 21 and 24. We were pretty much done with the children. The Panic of starting over has passed but I am having complications. My HCG levels are lower than they should be if my last period was February 26. Even though they seem to be going up as they should over the last week an a half.
Avatar f tn You go girl! I'm over 40 and am 15 weeks pregnant with twins using donor eggs. We spent about 4 years trying with my own eggs to no avail. You increase your odds with the younger donor eggs, as older women with older eggs have a higher miscarriage rate. It's the best thing we ever did. Do your homework though...check with the CDC regarding the donor egg facilities. Also, compare donor facility fees and make sure you know if the donor has donated before or if she is a first time donor.
Avatar n tn Like I have told others who ask this same question though, getting pregnant so soon after miscarriage caused tons of worry and stress because I hadn't healed emotionally yet. I worried until I was at least 20 weeks. I hope this is not the case for you. Baby dust!
760556 tn?1255708681 Is there anyone out there who has never gotten pregnant before and has gotten pregnant now after age 40?? I am also on the over 35 forum and have been given great advice as well as hope, thanks for any comments you may have. Good luck to all!!
Avatar f tn Although we have considered getting pregnant... but never really tried technically. Well my last period started on 10/23/2012 It lasted it's usual 5 days. My ex and I seperated for a while, but we reconciled ironically the same week I ovulate. Well according to the charts I should have been ovulating 11/2-11/8. We had constant sex during that time period..especially on 4,5 and 6th. although I didn't know that was my ovulation time until after the fact.

7365709 tn?1395402572 Hello June mommies our days are getting closer....hope to hear about all your birth stories soon .....BTW how are u ladies feeling?
Avatar f tn That's just the facts. Women often take a bit of 'help' to get pregnant after 40 such as artificial insemination or IVF (in vitro) or even surrogate eggs being used and implanted. But with that being said, you've only tried 2 cycles. That isn't long to try. I tried for a year and a half before conceiving my first child. Has she had a discussion with her ob/gyn about wanting to get pregnant? Does she track her cycle?
