Q: how worried should I be about egg quality at 36?

I recently turned 36 and have been reading about how egg quality drastically goes down after 35. The articles stated that the egg cannot complete division after fertilization making it unable to implant. I have been ttc for 6-7 mos now and never had a problem getting pregnant before. Have any of you had issues with infertility due to egg quality? What about bfps after the age of 35?

I had my first baby at 36, second at 41, and third at 44. All the pregnancies were fine and the children are healthy. I have not had any miscarriages, however, it did take more time to get pregnant. The key to healthy babies is a great diet, before, during, and after pregnancy. Stop eating all the refined crap and increase your greens, vegetables, fruit, and quality protein. If you won't do it for yourself, do it for the precious life you want so desperately to bring into the world.

I am 41 and currently pregnant. It is true that egg quality decreases as you age, but there are many women having happy healthy babies in their forties. Good luck and lots of baby dust.

Plenty of women have healthy babies in their mid to late 30s! I am 34 (just turned 34) and managed to get pg my 2nd cycle after dh's vasectomy reversal! Unfortunately that pg did not last...but I had the same thing happen at 25 yrs old only it took 9 cycles to conceive, that time! You have a good chance every month. Just keep being patient. I'm sure our time is coming soon!

Everyone defers but don't believe all the hype. It may take alittle longer than when you were younger but just exercise and take prenatals. I got pregnant at 36 first month trying. After that baby i had the depo shot one time and as soon as that was supposed to wear off we started trying again and it took 16 months to get pregnant. I was 38. 39 when i had my baby. Now at 40 i have been trying for about one year. I worry about egg quality too and have recently started taking coq10 and wheatgrass. Good luck and lots of baby dust!
