With the increase in the social activity of women, the time of first births is increasingly transferred to their age after thirty years.
However, science claims that conceiving at this time becomes more difficult, because with age, the ovarian reserve, that is, the egg supply in the ovaries becomes noticeably less. In other words, the older the woman, the probability of getting pregnant at least
The number of follicles throughout life is steadily declining, ranging from 7000000 in a girl who is still in the womb, to 300000-400000 at the first menstruation (of which only one percent can ovulate) and up to a thousand when natural menopause occurs.
At what age is it better to give birth?
Ability to conceive is called natural fertility and it is maximum in healthy women of twenty-twenty-five years old. This is the optimal age for procreation.
When is it better to give birth? After twenty-five years, the probability of natural conception falls and reaches the level of five percent by the age of forty.
The reasons for the decrease in the ovarian reserve are age, a hereditary factor of early ovarian malnutrition and ovarian surgery, and the manifestation of the latter two factors is also associated with age.
And if you have children after 30?
To diagnose a decrease in the reserve, an ultrasound examination is performed and the number of antral follicles is determined. In addition, determine the level of blood hormones, which is directly related to the follicular reserve. The high content of follicle-stimulating hormone indicates a weak stock of follicles.
The problem, of course, is being solved, but modern methods are not yet effective enough and are associated with interference in the course of natural processes, which is always undesirable. For example, the IVF program with the use of stimulant drugs shows an efficiency of only fifteen percent. Perhaps the donation of eggs, which not every woman can decide.
Thus, despite life circumstances, doctors strongly recommend giving birth to children up to the age of thirty using their own follicular reserve and not resorting to medical intervention.
Deciding that you will give birth until the age of thirty, for example, at twenty-five, you still need to choose the optimal time of the year for conception.
When is it better to give birth: in winter or in summer?
And here, even in the process of conception, one should not forget about the inquisitive eye of a scientist who, with unrelenting interest, penetrates into the depths, etc. So scientists say that children born in a rainy autumn, or in the cold winter, see better, spring summer kids.
Scientists ophthalmologists, having conducted quite extensive studies comparing the scope of myopia with the month of birth, determined that those born in the summer months had a probability of developing myopia by 24% more compared to winter children.
It is believed that this is due to prolonged exposure to natural light during pregnancy.
