Some highly fertile women will get pregnant accidentally when they are younger, and others will get pregnant quickly whenever they try, completing their families at a younger age. Those who are left are, disproportionately, the less fertile.
These modern-day research problems help explain why historical data from an age before birth control are so tempting. However, the downsides of a historical approach are numerous. Advanced medical care, antibiotics, and even a reliable food supply were unavailable hundreds of years ago.
Less-frequent sex might have been especially likely if couples had been married for a long time, or had many children, or both. Having more children of course makes it more difficult to fit in sex, and some couples surely realized— eureka! Some historical studies try to control for these problems in various ways—such as looking only at just-married couples—but many of the same issues remain. Studies based on cycle viability use a prospective rather than retrospective design—monitoring couples as they attempt to get pregnant instead of asking couples to recall how long it took them to get pregnant or how long they tried.
They do, but no journal article I could locate contained these numbers, and none of the experts I contacted could tell me what data set they were based on. Dunson, a biostatistics professor, thought the lower numbers might be averages across many cycles rather than the chances of getting pregnant during the first cycle of trying. More women will get pregnant during the first cycle than in each subsequent one because the most fertile will conceive quickly, and those left will have lower fertility on average.
Most fertility problems are not the result of female age. Blocked tubes and endometriosis a condition in which the cells lining the uterus also grow outside it strike both younger and older women. Fertility problems unrelated to female age may also explain why, in many studies, fertility at older ages is considerably higher among women who have been pregnant before. The rates of miscarriages and birth defects rise with age, and worries over both have been well ventilated in the popular press.
But how much do these risks actually rise? Many miscarriage statistics come from—you guessed it—women who undergo IVF or other fertility treatment, who may have a higher miscarriage risk regardless of age. Nonetheless, the National Vital Statistics Reports , which draw data from the general population, find that 15 percent of women ages 20 to 34, 27 percent of women 35 to 39, and 26 percent of women 40 to 44 report having had a miscarriage.
These increases are hardly insignificant, and the true rate of miscarriages is higher, since many miscarriages occur extremely early in a pregnancy—before a missed period or pregnancy test. What about birth defects? However, the probability of having a child with a chromosomal abnormality remains extremely low. Even at early fetal testing known as chorionic villus sampling , 99 percent of fetuses are chromosomally normal among year-old pregnant women, and 97 percent among year-olds. At 45, when most women can no longer get pregnant, 87 percent of fetuses are still normal.
Many of those that are not will later be miscarried. In the near future, fetal genetic testing will be done with a simple blood test, making it even easier than it is today for women to get early information about possible genetic issues. W hat does all this mean for a woman trying to decide when to have children? More specifically, how long can she safely wait? First, while the data on natural fertility among modern women are proliferating, they are still sparse.
Collectively, the three modern studies by Dunson, Rothman, and Steiner included only about women 35 or older, and they might not be representative of all such women trying to conceive.
Second, statistics, of course, can tell us only about probabilities and averages—they offer no guarantees to any particular person. The data, imperfect as they are, suggest two conclusions. The bottom line for women, in my view, is: plan to have your last child by the time you turn Pyne needs to face the facts on his broken promise on disability schools funding Education Minister Christopher Pyne needs to face up to his Government's broken promise on disability funding, and take the lead in addressing the huge levels of unmet need in the education system, the AEU said today Thank you to everyone who acknowledged and celebrated World Down Syndrome Day at the weekend.
