How to reverse aging and increase fertility?
Many women worry about the loss of fertility during the aging. Changes in modern society promoted women’s liberation and enabled women to have many options from being a housewife and mother. Many women are putting off to have children in the favour of education and career. Hence, this led to the increase in infertility rates and fertility problems. This diminished women in having a healthy baby and chances of conceiving.
According to studies in 1957, 7% of the couples were infertile at the age of 30. at the age of 40, this increased to 33% and at 45, this raised to 87%. since 1957, the infertility rates are increasing in many societies.
Quality and Quantity of Egg:
The real factor that affecting the fertility is not the age, but the quality and quantity of egg. For instance, a 45year old lady may have sufficient supply of goody quality eggs, while a 25years old lady may have poor quality of eggs.
The quality and quantity of egg declines at late 30’s and at early 40’s. Problems of quality and quantity raises as the women grow older, the fertility problems in women increase with age. Women’s egg deteriorate as she grows older. This is because every woman is born with complement full of eggs and they are not resupplied. These eggs are in the ovaries and are released at every menstrual cycle.
The supply ages continuously in the ovaries. By the age of 30, the egg supply are diminished and the rest are aged and are declined in quality. At this age, men produce new sperm continuously and hence there is no aging in the supply. Older men are not active sexually so there might be lesser chances of conception.
Genetic Abnormalities in Eggs Aging:
Decline in the quality and quantity of eggs increase with abnormality in chromosomes. This abnormality is due to meiotic spindle that involves in the organizing chromosome pairs in DNA. These abnormalities increase with aging in women. Researches proved that women at early 20’s had 17% of abnormality in eggs. At early 40’s this increased to 79%. Hence, as women age, the chances of producing abnormal chromosomal eggs increase, the miscarriage risk increases and, chances of giving birth to babies with abnormalities increases.
With advancement in the medicines, infertility can be treated. Consult a fertility specialist as various fertility treatments are available now. However, these treatments are not guaranteed. The best option to prevent infertility in women is to conceive before her menopause arrives.
