Age and pregnancy?
Assisted Reproduction Center

Does age influence pregnancy?

  • For women: Fecundability, or the probability of conceiving per cycle, decreases with age: from 25% per cycle at the age of 25, it drops to 12% at the age of 35 and only 6% at 42. With the cumulative effect of cycles, 60% of couples whose woman is 25 years old will have conceived after 6 months, 80% after one year, and 90% after 2 years. These figures are divided by two for a female age of 35 and by 4 at 42. In addition, at the age of 42, only 12% of couples will have a child within two years. Furthermore, the average age of menopause in France is currently between 51 and 52 years old, but 10% of women will be menopausal before the age of 45, 1% before 40, and 0.1% before 30. Thus, today, many women consider themselves legitimately "young in life," while they are already "old for reproduction." Women confuse having their periods and being fertile, while fertility declines about 10 years before menopause. The lack of awareness of this reality sharpens the feeling of injustice in the face of infertility always experienced as too early.
  • For men: The impact of male age on the chances of conception is also now recognized. Thus, if 78% of men conceive within 6 months when they are under 25, they only do so in 58% of cases beyond 35. In assisted reproductive technology (ART), a decrease in the chances of pregnancy after intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization (IVF), as well as an increase in miscarriages, is noted after the age of 40.
