No, it isn’t true that you can’t conceive after 29! It is true that fertility declines as we age, but it is still possible for a woman to become pregnant all the way up until menopause, though miscarriages become increasingly likely the older you get. With the help of techniques such as in vitro fertilization, it’s even possible to become pregnant after menopause—the world’s oldest mom is 66! Every woman is different, but in general, a woman’s fertility peaks in her early 20s. Healthy couples that are having sex regularly have about a 25 to 30% chance of becoming pregnant every month. Somewhere between the ages of 35 to 40, the odds of conceiving in a given month drop to about 10 percent. If you and your husband have been having unprotected sex for at least a year, then both of you should visit a physician to try to determine if either of you are having fertility issues.
