    1. Hi. We have 3 children from our previous marriages but my new husband and I would really like to have another. I´m not as young as I used to be (I’m 41 and my man is 44) and it just doesn´t seem to be happening for us. Any advice?

      • Hi Shirley

        It is lovely that you want to add to your family, and indeed, there are many women over the age of 35 who want to become pregnant. You can find information about pregnancy after 40 in our following article: Pregnancy over 40.

        If you have been trying for an extended period, 6 months or more, with no success then you may want to visit a fertility clinic for some fertility testing and to discuss your options.

        I hope this helps and wish you the best.
