There’s no denying your odds of getting pregnant are far lower now than they were just a few years ago. After 45, experts say, it’s almost impossible to get pregnant using your own eggs. At the same time, many 40-plus women do get pregnant, some using fertility treatments and some not. And there may be benefits to waiting to have children – for both you and your child. Firstly, I want to start with the positives. It is very possible to get pregnant at 44. You will need to still be having regular periods (although they don’t need to be the same length each cycle but as long as you have not hit the menopause, which would be pretty early at age 44.) Although more than that, you need to be ovulating (although you can get help with this if not.) There may also be other medical issues that might need looking into.The negative side is that it may take you much longer than it would have done in your 20s or 30s. So you may need to have some patience.
