looking for reliable statistics on pregnancy rates according to age


Recommended Posts

Not what you asked, but wanted to add in that there is some new thought now about using DHEA and/or CoQ10 for women of advanced maternal age. DHEA seems to not only increase pregnancy rates but also decrease miscarriage rates. 


We used to think that the eggs were old, and that was the problem. Now they are finding that the damage to the egg happens while the egg is maturing in a non ideal ovarian environment. DHEA and possibly CoQ10 seem to reguvenate the ovarian environment, so that the eggs mature in the follicle properly, preventing DNA damage, etc. Some fertility clinics are having women take DHEA for several months before doing follicle stimulation and getting not only more eggs but better quality eggs. 


Just some interesting info :)
