London, Jan 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Researchers have indicated that 35-year-old women are more likely to have fertility problems that younger ones. The research was carried out by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

The major research also found that when a woman is forty years or older, the chance that a pregnancy will result in miscarriage is higher than giving birth. The researchers also identified that women are increasingly pushing their birth age much higher to have more time for their careers.

A co-author of the study, David Utting, explained the reasons for the study. He said that, “Clear facts on fertility need to be made available to women of all ages to remind them that the most secure age for childbearing remains 20-35. However women and doctors should remain vigilant to prevent unplanned and unwanted pregnancies.”

The researchers pleaded with society to make it easier for women to have children and also continue their careers. There were some findings for men as well.

The research claimed that men’s fertility starts to decline at the age of 25 years. The problem escalates and by the time that they reach the age of forty it becomes a major difficulty in their lives.
