Some 23.6% of women over the age of 40 managed to conceive in the first month of trying for a baby, a fertility and pregnancy survey has found.
According to Netmums:
- A further 19% fell pregnant after three months of trying.
- Over half (53.9%) were with child after six months.
- Fertility experts have warned women fertility plunges after the age of 35, but of the 3,151 women quizzed by Netmums, 70% said they disagreed.
