Pregnancy Risk: Women and Men at this Age Range Risk themselves of Giving Birth

Why are older women at risk of pregnancy problems?

Women between the ages of 35-40 years are more likely to suffer from health issues than women in their primes. High blood pressure, for example, is more prevalent in the elderly. However, research shows that even healthy older women can have difficult pregnancies, and also their risk of pregnancy is high. Woman's reproductive years are at their height between the ages of 20s and 30s, the ability to become pregnant begins to diminish about the age of 30 years. Fertility drop to the point that most women are unable to conceive by the age of 40-50. Complications are more likely in women who become pregnant later in age.

Women who conceive between the ages of 35-40 years are more likely to experience miscarriage, birth abnormalities, high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, and difficult delivery may be more common in older women. According to several research, while older women have a higher risk of pregnancy complications, Women over the age of 38 are more likely to have a child with Down syndrome, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, or gestational diabetes.

Men who are over the ages of 40-50 have a greater incidence of infertility. They are more likely to father children who have birth defects, a low birth weight, or a poor Apgar score. The reason for all these risks is that the success rate of reproductive therapies decreases as people get older.
