MEDIA DISTORTS CHANCES OF PREGNANCY OVER 40 AS 'RARE'

Fertility In Women Over 40

Did you know the rate of unexpected pregnancy in women over 40 is second only to teenagers?  Along with that goes a high rate of abortions in this age group.   Although those statistics may be troubling to some, it should actually be encouraging for women who are trying to conceive because it shows that they can still be quite fertile.

If you read my blog and my WEBSITE, you know that I had my daughter at the age of 44 naturally after failed fertility treatments.  I also became pregnant at the age of 49 by total surprise (even after all of us in the household had the flu and I couldn't even remember seeing my husband let alone having sex with him!)

This article explains more:
Media sensationalism and the protectionism bred by fear of medical malpractice lawsuits perpetuate the myth that having a child naturally later in life is virtually impossible —and therefore should be avoided.
The media’s infertility stories and glamorization of alternate means of achieving parenthood, along with medical experts’ reasonable cautions about pregnancy after age 35, have been distorted to mean that natural pregnancy after age 40 is rare and a significant health risk for mother and child. Yet the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists states that “many older women show no greater signs of problems than do younger women. Age need not be a barrier to a safe, healthy pregnancy.”5
 
The well-publicized increased chance of chromosomal defects resulting in conditions such as Down syndrome and trisomy 18 can horrify women, even though such risks are actually still very small. According to the ACOG, at 43, my age-related risk for a Down syndrome baby was two percent and three percent for a baby with any chromosomal defect.6 According to my OB-GYN’s office, when my health and my baby’s ultrasound were factored in, the calculated risks were 1.5 percent for Down syndrome and .02 percent for trisomy 18. Thus, older women who are healthy enough to conceive naturally without “trying” are often healthier than age-related risk calculations might reflect.
