Why is age such an important factor in a woman's fertility?

By Dr. María Arqué.
Last Update: 04/03/2020

We women are born with all the oocytes we will have for life. A process of natural loss of the quantity and quality of oocytes occurs throughout life. This decrease in the quantity and quality of the eggs is more pronounced after 35 years old.

For this reason, after the age of 35, the chances of pregnancy decrease and the probability of miscarriage increases.
