A couple's fertility and the chances of getting pregnant with each ovulation are determined by many factors:
- the general health conditions of the intended parents,
- the lifestyle they lead,
- the habit of smoking,
- the type of work,
- air pollution,
- the environment in which they live,
- the age.
Age and the likelihood of getting pregnant
But it is above all the age factor that plays a decisive role. "According to statistical studies, up to the age of 30 there is a 30% chance of becoming pregnant for each ovulation" specifies the gynecologist Rossana. "The odds drop to 10% by age 40 and further halve at 43, even if these are approximate percentages." (READ: FERTILITY, AGE MATTERS)
The vast majority of people becomes pregnant within the first 12 months of the first attempt to conceive with regular unprotected intercourse. About half reach the goal within 6 months.
In any case, if after a year of intercourse not protected by contraception the child does not arrive (which are lowered to 6 months, if the woman is over 35 years old), it is advisable to contact the gynecologist for any checks.
Getting pregnant after a miscarriage
After a spontaneous termination of pregnancy, the ovulation process starts again and ovulation can occur even two weeks after the abortion.
