Fertility Week 2020: Age and fertility – know the facts

It’s often said that knowledge is power, and that’s certainly the case for people wanting to increase their chance of a healthy baby through natural conception or fertility treatment.

From October 12 – 18, Your Fertility will be promoting information about the impact of age on male and female fertility in the hope it will empower people to discuss their plans for a baby if they want one.

While nobody can change their age, understanding the chance of a healthy baby for men and women at different ages can help people make informed choices about when to start trying for a pregnancy. It may help people make decisions about whether to start fertility treatment, too.
