Over the years, women face several facts. In the first place, women are born with a certain number of ovules that are used up over time. Second, the highest fertility peak is between 18 and 25 years old. Third, at the age of 40, the average fertility rate decreases to around 15% compared to the age of 25. Fourth, there is a greater risk that the child will be born with a chromosomal abnormality if the mother is over 40. And finally, as the woman ages, the number of ovules decreases, and their quality deteriorates. Consequently, due to the lower number of ovules, there is less chance of getting pregnant and, as the quality is not optimal, there is a higher incidence of abnormal embryos, which causes more spontaneous abortions.
For these reasons, taking measures to protect your fertility while your eggs are still healthy allows you to have more options and prolongs the time during which you can conceive, which can combat emotional distress.
