The Cause Can Not Get Pregnant Again For 10 Years?
My question is, Can I still be able to get pregnant again as long as I can, whereas I have almost 10 years when having sex with my husband has never used contraception / birth control pills / injections, I am surprised after 10 years I have never used contraception so far. I haven’t been able to get pregnant yet, maybe I have blood pressure now, sometimes my blood pressure suddenly rises and I get stressed. What is the factor that has made me unable to conceive for the past 10 years … ??? Please provide a solution for me, thank you🙏🙂.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, as long as a woman hasn't gone through menopause, she still has the potential to get pregnant. The ovaries still have eggs and these eggs can still be released (ovulation) every month. Eggs that have been released from the ovary will be fertilized by sperm and pregnancy will occur. However, at the age of 35 years and over, the fertility of women is already more decreased compared to women in their 20s and if the woman is pregnant, her pregnancy will be called a risky pregnancy. Women who are pregnant at the age of 35 and above have a higher risk of having preterm labor and giving birth to a low birth weight baby, have a higher likelihood of twin pregnancy, increasing the risk of birth defects in infants (including the risk of developing Down syndrome), and also increases the likelihood of cesarean delivery, etc.
If the couple has tried to get pregnant for a year or more by having sexual intercourse regularly without using safeguards (KB), then the couple can be called experiencing infertility. Infertility itself can be influenced by many factors. This factor can come from women, men, or both. The following is an article that you can read about the factors that can affect male fertility and the factors that can affect female fertility.
If indeed you want a pregnancy again, make sure you have considered all the risks. If indeed you and your partner still want a pregnancy, the first step you can take is to check yourself and your partner to the obstetrician together. The doctor will conduct a series of tests to determine your fertility status and also recommend a sperm analysis to determine your partner's fertility status. If needed, the obstetrician can refer your partner to do an examination with a urologist too. If later you are successful in getting pregnant, the doctor will also recommend doing a doctor's check-up routinely (not just to the midwife), because pregnancy at your age is a risky pregnancy.
To increase the likelihood of pregnancy, have regular sexual relations every 2-3 days with your partner. If routine sexual relations are not possible, you can have sexual relations more often in your fertile period. Here is an article that you can read to find out when your fertility is happening. Begin to drink folic acid regularly as you plan your pregnancy to ensure adequate supply of folic acid when you become pregnant.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
