Does age matter in conceiving a baby?

 

Yes, chances of conception decrease with increasing age. In a female, the quality and quantity of eggs decrease as the age advances. Especially after the age of 35 years, there is a rapid decrease in the egg reservoir of ovaries in woman. In a male, the causes of decrease in fertility is unknown but studies have shown
that chances of a female getting pregnant with a male partner of 40 years and above are less.
