What is The Best Age For a Woman To Get Pregnant?

Building a family is all about timing.  However, that timing is not the same for everyone. The best age to get pregnant can be 21, 41 or any age in between. The key to finding the best age to get pregnant means discovering who you are.  

Life Plan


Every person’s life plan is different.  Some individuals look to start their families early in life.  Others aim to become established in their careers before having children.  There is no one right way to start a family.  Women should feel comfortable following their own timeline to starting a family.

Biological Considerations

Biologically, women are best suited to become pregnant before age 35.  After this point, a woman’s fertility naturally begins to decline.  Because of this, some women feel pressured to start a family before they hit this milestone.  However, there are measures women can take to preserve their fertility.

Egg freezing is a way for women to delay the decline in fertility.  By harvesting younger, healthier eggs, women can rest assure that they have eggs are available when they are ready to start a family. 

Egg Freezing Process

During the egg freezing process, a woman’s body is stimulated to produce multiple eggs using fertility medication.  The resulting eggs are then retrieved during an outpatient procedure and evaluated for quality and suitability for fertilization.  Healthy eggs are then frozen and stored until a woman is ready for them.

New Hope Fertility Center, located in NYC, provides world class fertility care including fertility preservation.  During the egg freezing process, the New Hope team utilizes vitrification, a state of the art method of freezing eggs.  As opposed to traditional freezing methods, vitrification does not lead to the formation of ice crystals.  As a result, the survival rate for the freezing and thawing process when vitrification is used is 98 percent, making egg freezing a viable method of fertility preservation.
