I'll Be 38 This Yr. & I've Always Wanted More Than 1 Child; / My Son (Who'll Be 15 Yrs. This Yr.), I Had Intercourse 11 Days After My LMP; Long Story Short, When I Found Out I Was Pregnant W/ My Son, I Was 6 Wks. Pregnant. Does The Fact That I'm Older Matter (As Far As Me Possibly Being Pregnant)?

Hi Shortee7274,

Welcome to EmpowHER. 35 is the age of reckoning for women when it comes to having children. In your early 30s, your chances of getting pregnant are only slightly lower than in your late 20s and your risk of a Miscarriage or a baby with Down syndrome only slightly higher — but at 35, that decline in fertility begins to accelerate. Age 35 is also the point when Down syndrome and other genetic abnormalities become more of a concern, so experts routinely recommend amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling Miscarriage rates also rise slowly but steadily as women age, as do pregnancy-related complications. A woman over 35 is more likely than a younger woman to have an ectopic pregnancy. Cesarean rates are also higher for women over 35: Mothers this age have about a 40 percent chance of a c-section delivery compared to an almost 30 percent chance for mothers in their 20s. It's important to let your doctor know if you want to conceive.  So he can the right care for you and your baby.
