What are the stats of getting pregnant after 35 naturally?
Research demonstrates that we are more fertile when we are younger. Women under the age of 34 have infertility rates of just 7%. After the age of 35 however infertility rates start to increase steadily and by the time a woman reaches the age of 40 she will have a 5% chance of conceiving naturally.
Why does our fertility decline as we age?
There are two key factors that are affected with age namely a decrease in egg count – this happens every month as a woman loses an egg during menstruation, and a decrease in egg quality. When she is a baby a woman holds within her all the eggs that she will ever have. Over the age of 35 the quality of these eggs start to decline and the eggs will be more likely to contain chromosomal abnormalities

Natural Fertility Treatments
Getting pregnant after 35 naturally with Acupuncture
Your practitioner may recommend a course of acupuncture and/or herbs to help to regulate the flow of vital energy, or Qi, that flows around the body. According to TCM good health and metabolism depend on Qi. As Qi flows around the body’s Organs it provides warmth to the uterus, distributes body fluids which can nourish eggs and support balanced hormones. Through the use of sterile, single use disposable needles we are able to judiciously alter the flow and strength of Qi and to ensure that it flows in a positive direction – thus improving egg quality after 40 naturally.
If one Organ does not function properly, it affects the rest of the body and it only takes one thing to be wrong to throw the whole system out. Common reasons for infertility include Liver Qi Stagnation – which is exacerbated by stress and Blood Stagnation – which means that Blood does not circulate to the eggs and uterus effectively and Dampness in the abdomen which further decreases the amount of blood circulation to the ovaries – which decreases the quality of eggs further.
