Getting Pregnant in Later Years

Fortunately for most older women who have a baby, pregnancy and birth is healthy thanks to advances in modern medicine and technology. However, if you're over the age of 35, you could be at an increased risk of complications. If you already suffer from high blood pressure or heart disease, pregnancy could worsen your condition. It's also common for older women to have babies with a lower birth weight, or that are premature. Your risk of miscarriage or having a stillborn baby also increases once you reach 35.

It can even be difficult for older women to conceive. Your periods may be more irregular, and you may need to enlist the help of fertility doctors if you want to get pregnant. The most common problems in pregnancies in women over 35 are genetic abnormalities, such as Down's Syndrome. Your risk for having a baby with Down's Syndrome dramatically increases once you reach 35, and again when you reach 40 or older. Other defects such as Tay-Sachs are also more prevalent in babies born to women who are over 35.

If you do conceive after age 35, your doctor will want you to undergo prenatal testing. These tests can determine fetal complications, and are routine in older women. You will be advised to have an amniocentesis, which does carry a small risk of miscarriage. An ultrasound can often show abnormalities in as early as eight weeks, and are done more frequently if you're over 35.

It doesn't matter what ethnic group you're from women of every race are at risk ...

Prenatal Genetic Testing

Prenatal Genetic Testing

If your baby had a serious health problem, would you want to know? Prenatal genetic testing can be a difficult subject, and parents are largely divided over this issue. Some want to know all of the possible health risks so that they can make an informed decision about the pregnancy. Others feel that it would only cause them to worry especially if an abnormality comes back but the physician is not sure how significant it is.

There are over 500 prenatal genetic tests available today to test for genetic disorders such as Huntington's disease, Downs Syndrome, spina bifida, and Tay-Sachs. Prenatal genetic testing can take a number of different forms, including blood tests, an amniocentesis (a long, thin needle is inserted through the womb and into the amniotic sac, where a small amount of the fluid is withdrawn) or chorionic villus sampling (CVS), which involves taking a cell sample from the placenta.

Usually, women over the age of 35 are advised to undergo prenatal genetic testing because the risk of the fetus having certain abnormalities increases drastically after this age. For instance, the risk of having a child with Downs Syndrome increases to one in 200 for women over age 35. Today, it is becoming more common for physicians to suggest prenatal genetic testing for women of all ages.

If a fetus is diagnosed with a genetic abnormality, parents face a tough choice. They can choose whether they wish to terminate the pregnancy, or to deal with the abnormality once the child is born. Genetic testing can't determine how extensive an abnormality is, or what symptoms will be present, so parents have no idea how serious an abnormality may be.

Diseases such as breast cancer may also be diagnosed by some types of prenatal genetic testing. Again, some parents may want to know about the health obstacles their child will face down the road, while many feel that...
