As society advances, birth rates tend to decline. This is happening in every first-world country, from the United States to Hong Kong and Japan.
It is now common to see women having their first baby at an older age, like in their late 30s or early 40s as they prefer to establish their career and have better financial security before starting a family. However, it is a biological fact that as the woman gets older, she is less fertile. At 35 years old, the fertility rate is 350 per 1,000 married couples; this decreases to 150 per 1,000 married couples by 40 years old.
More alarmingly is the increase in miscarriage rates, from 20-25% at 35 years old to 50% at 40 years old. Besides age-related infertility, gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis, fallopian tube blockage, Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), uterine abnormalities, ovulation disorders as well as endocrine problems including thyroid disease can cause infertility. Lifestyle plays an important role in its decline, especially smoking.
You may have fertility problems if you haven't been able to get pregnant after trying for at least 1 year.
