One of the most important of these factors is maternal age, which can have an effect on the quality and quantity of eggs obtained at the retrieval. As a woman's age increases, her ability to become pregnant and carry a pregnancy to term decreases. Even if a woman becomes pregnant at the outer limits of her reproductive years, chances of miscarriage and chromosomal abnormalities increase. Although it varies from woman to woman, fertility typically begins to decline during your mid- to late-thirties. The greatest decline in fertility rates occurs after the age of 40.
The differentiation between "chemical" pregnancy and "clinical" pregnancy:
A positive pregnancy test indicates a "chemical" pregnancy. A pregnancy is named a "clinical" pregnancy when an intrauterine gestational sac is visible on ultrasound. This first pregnancy ultrasound is usually done at 8 weeks of pregnancy. Unfortunately, miscarriage might occur prior to or after this ultrasound. Miscarriages are more common before 12 weeks of pregnancy and the risks of miscarriage increase with female age.
