Fertility problems affect approximately 10% of couples in the reproductive age. Moreover, as a woman ages, her chances of conceiving naturally diminish greatly. Her fertility is at its peak in the mid-20s and declines after the age of 35. In fact, by 40, her odds of getting pregnant naturally are reduced to just 5%. The corresponding figures for women under 30 is 25% while for women over 30, it falls to 20%.
Furthermore, 80-90% of the couples trying to get pregnant typically achieve success within a year. The rest might take longer and possibly, even need help along the way.
Having said that, there are a few things women and men can do to reduce their chances of suffering from fertility issues. Ensuring their diet is full of protein, minerals and vitamins, avoiding alcohol consumption and smoking, and keeping a tab on stress and overall weight help to keep fertility problems at bay.
