1. Timing Is Everything 

If you are thinking of trying to conceive in the future, it is so very important that you consider the timing of when you want to get pregnant. First of all, to truly understand the importance of timing in getting pregnant, you have to understand a woman’s fertility. Every woman, when she is born, is born with a set number of eggs. This is the number of eggs she will have for her entire life. Once she begins ovulating, she will lose a significant number of those eggs each month, and her egg reserve will begin to dwindle away until they are all gone.

The body also knows to use up the “best” eggs first, which is why women who conceive later in life have a higher chance of having a baby with a birth defect or chromosomal abnormality, and also have a higher rate of miscarriage.

2. When The Supply Gets Low

As women age, their egg supply gets lower and lower, and their number of “good” quality eggs also begins to decrease. Women in their early twenties, as mentioned before, are the most fertile. Once a woman hits age 30, her fertility begins to decrease.

As-women-age-their-egg-supply-gets-lower-and-lower-and-their-number-of-good-quality-eggs-also-begins-to-decreaseA shocking new study published by the University of St. Andrews and Edinburgh University in Scotland says that women have actually lost around 90 percent of their egg supply by age 30, and that there is only a tiny 3 percent of eggs remaining by age 40. This study shows that the decline of a woman’s fertility and her loss of eggs is much greater and happens much more rapidly than previously thought.

3. What To Do

Of course, there is nothing that women can do to reverse their loss of eggs, that is a natural thing that can not be stopped. However, women can sometimes slow down their fertility and stay fertile longer. Keeping yourself at a healthy weight, eating a good diet, reducing stress and exercising regularly are all great ways to improve fertility and stay fertile longer.

Some fibres examples in a every day foodIf you smoke, drink, or use illegal drugs, stopping all of those things can also improve fertility. Taking a prenatal vitamin or a fertility blend like Conceive Easy can also give fertility an added boost. The bottom line is that women should really think about when they are going to try to conceive and should have an idea of their fertility plan for the future, now that it has come to light that fertility might actually decline much more rapidly than previously believed.
