  • As you get older you have less viable eggs in your ovaries. This is just a fact of aging. Your eggs start to decrease as well. It's hard to say if you are too old or not, everyone is different. If you still want to try I suggest you get the best quality prenatal you can find and take it daily. Eat well and exercise regularly dont' drink and don't smoke. Good luck to youDOM

Good luck to youDOMI agree- It is not just about your age, it is about how healthy you are. It is important to remember that the chances of having a child with Down Syndrome or with Lupus dramatically increases after the woman reaches age 40.I would not discourage you because I am not a doctor, but you may want to discuss that with a qualified specialist.Good Luck to you.
