Most experts believe that there is no ideal period, generally valid, to bring a child into the world. At 25 years, energy helps you keep up with the care of the little one, but the financial resources and lack of experience disadvantage you. At 35 and 45 years of age, economic stability and maturity are definitely a plus, while the challenges of risky pregnancy and demanding career are major obstacles. Here is what a task involves depending on the different age categories.
The availability of a woman to the miraculous pregnancy experience varies under the influence of several factors. The biological clock is beginning to emit strong signals starting at the age of 20, even though the reality data may be so early.
Pregnancy at 25 years
Between 20 and 25 years, every woman goes through the most fertile period of her life. In most cases, the menstrual cycle becomes regular. The chances of getting pregnant in unprotected sex are 20% every month.
After conception, the risks regarding pregnancy are minor: the blood pressure should be within normal limits, the imminence of gestational diabetes is 50% lower than at 40, and the health does not pose major problems.
The abortion rate for this age category is about 9.5%. The eggs are young, therefore the baby has very small chances of being born with chromosomal defects (the frequency of such cases is 1 to 1,667 births).
From an emotional point of view, frustration with delaying ascension in career may occur. Another concern concerns the external aspect: very young women are more affected by physical changes than those who have passed the age of 30 years. In family life, conflicts and difficult times can occur due to the lack of experience with the responsibilities of living in two.
Pregnancy at 35 years
The fertility of a woman begins to experience a downward evolution from the age of 30, which means that trying to conceive can be relatively difficult. By the age of 35, the chances of bringing a child into the world are still quite high.
For example, the rate of reproductive success in women with an average age of 35 is 25%. After 40 years, it drops significantly, to 8%.
Pregnancy loss is possible in a percentage of about 10%, and the risk of birth of a baby with chromosomal defects (Down Syndrome) is 1 in 952.
The imminence of a risky pregnancy is much higher, so thorough prenatal monitoring is absolutely necessary. High blood pressure affects twice as many women 35 years and younger. Gestational diabetes occurs twice as often, especially if the physical form is no longer as good.
Labor tends to be longer after age 30, which is why cesarean surgery is performed more frequently.
The emotional side is particularly favorable, as involvement in professional life over the past decade causes most women to feel truly prepared to start a family. As energy resources begin to decline, there is a fear that they will not be able to do as well at home and at work.
Pregnancy at 45 years
Despite countless obstacles, 45-year-old women who manage to conceive a child without the help of fertilization treatments are longer-lived. Estrogen, produced by the woman still able to get pregnant, fights the aging of the heart, bones and other organs. However, less than 1% of women in this age group bring a baby to the world.
Pregnancy at the age of 40 implies a low resistance to fatigue and a predisposition to various conditions (hemorrhoids, low muscle tone). The restrictions on weight gain are much more severe.
One-third of the tasks of 45-year-old women are not fulfilled: the too-old eggs and the reduced ability of the body to provide the baby with the necessary nutrients are to blame. Common conditions during pregnancy (placenta previa, rupture of placenta, etc.). Chromosomal defects of the fetus have the highest incidence (1 to 106 chances of Down Syndrome).
Emotionally, maturity, financial stability and childcare performance are extremely favorable aspects. Instead, 45-year-old moms are worried about their own health and baby's health.
