Fertility and age
Your overall good health does not necessarily mean that you are fertile (this also applies to men!).
One in ten couples of reproductive age, who may be in excellent health, have fertility problems. The causes vary. In 1/3 of the cases only the woman is responsible, in 1/3 only the man is responsible and for the remaining 1/3 both are equally responsible or the causes are unknown.
The biggest factor in reduced fertility for both sexes is age.
For women, statistically, fertility peaks in the middle of their second decade and from the age of 27 onwards, it begins to decline gradually. From the age of 37 onwards, fertility decreases rapidly. So, if you are over 30 and trying to have a child, your contacts should coincide perfectly with your fertile days because the chances are already less than a decade ago. The only way to know for sure if you are ovulating is with our ovulation tests.
Here we must emphasize, of course, that all these numbers are based on statistical results of surveys and relate to the overall picture. There are women who in their 30s show signs of menopause and there are women who after the age of 40 manage to get pregnant normally and easily. Every organism is different.
For men, things are similar. As you age, live and moving sperm decrease in both number and quality. But the limit beyond which the reduction of live and moving sperm is now apparent is the age of 40 years. The difference is that men can fertilize at a fairly old age, even after their 80s, depending on their body and lifestyle. Now men can easily and discreetly check the quality of their sperm with the innovative male fertility test only from HomeTest.gr
