How Does Age Affect Fertility?
Many medical doctors say that a woman’s fertility starts to diminish at age 35, but that statement might be a bit of a generalization. In my practice, I have found many exceptions to that rule.
I have noticed that if a woman has taken good care of herself by eating well, exercising, and not having engaged in long periods of drug or alcohol use during her lifetime, the window of opportunity for reproduction seems to be open for a much longer period of time.
In my book, The Mind-Body Fertility Connection, after each chapter, I invited women from my practice to share stories of their fertility journeys. Three of the thirteen women who shared their stories were age 45 when they had those babies, all healthy babies. Three of the other 13 women who wrote accounts went on to have a second or third baby in their forties.
An important element of fertility appears to be how well a woman has taken care of herself during her lifetime, and, of course, how mindful she is about her health in the present.
Another key factor, in my opinion, is addressing any emotional blocks and reducing stress. Those two factors can cause the body to shift from reproductive mode into survival mode. That is where hypnosis can help.
