Every day more women have left motherhood as a background in their life and making the decision to become a mother more and more later. Upon reaching 30 years of age, women end up suffering with the pressure of falling fertility and with questions about whether the time has come to become a mother. What for some is no problem being a mother at 30 or 40 even though it seems late, for others it is cause for concern and the need to seek alternative fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization.
With that in mind, researchers at the New York Human Reproduction Center have developed a new fertility test so that young women can plan for a future pregnancy . The test that won the name “What is my fertility” was developed with the focus that women aged 18 to 35 years can identify the number of eggs and the need to freeze them so that they can get pregnant in the future.
After treating thousands of women and their infertilities for years and listening to how they would have liked to have prevented the premature aging of their eggs so that they could carry out and plan a pregnancy, we decided to find a way to help them. Says Norbert Gleicher medical director and chief scientist at the New York Human Reproduction Center.
While men produce sperm throughout their lives, women obtain their eggs from birth and not all are healthy and able to generate and over the years and as their age advances, ovarian reserves decrease more and more and decrease the possibility of becoming pregnant . That is why studies show that women at 30 years of age, out of 1,000, only 400 will be able to conceive naturally. Upon reaching 45, that number will drop to 100 women out of 1,000.
The fertility test aims to alert and enable women to seek knowledge even before they want to become pregnant avoiding future emotional disorders and wear and tear with untiring fertility treatments in the future. Rather than diagnosing the condition and the lack of eggs, the test aims to alert before it happens and what alternatives are taken so that you can achieve the dream of being a mother when the time comes. The test costs an average of US $ 98.00 and has the ability to analyze each hormonal change in the blood and look for a genetic variation that increases the risk of early maturation of eggs. The test is still available only in Great Britain and they are awaiting tests in other countries so that the availability is everywhere in the world.
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
