Delayed Pregnancy Can Cause Health Complications, Says Study
There are a few things which we can't change even with the help of scientific advancements. For example, all those women who plan to have baby relatively later in their life are at higher risk of experiencing miscarriage and other pregnancy related difficulties.
A recent study has found that delay pregnancy during the most fertile years is easier for women and less risky. The women tend to delay their pregnancy because of a number of reasons. Career, financial instability and absence of suitable partner are some of the reasons on the basis of which women decides to delay pregnancy.
However, in the recent time, people have also started to follow the footsteps of celebrities who often make news of given birth without experiencing any adverse outcomes at advanced age of their life.
Dr. Pasquale Patrizio from the Yale School of Medicine was reported as saying, "There is an alarming misconception about fertility among women. We also found a lack of knowledge about steps women can take early in their reproductive years to preserve the possibility of conception later in life".
Dr. Patrizio further informed that a larger number of women come to his clinic complaining of not being able to conceive after the age of 43. Awareness among women is lacking about the right time for conceiving.
As a large number of women are planning to delay their pregnancy, the demand of Assisted Reproductive Therapy (ART) has increased by manifolds. Although with the help of scientific advancement elder women can now conceive, at the time of birth they may experience many health complications.
The women are required to speak to their doctors before planning pregnancy so that they could get adequate guidance about it. Late pregnancy can cause problems not only to the mothers but also to the infants.
