Getting Pregnant
Getting Pregnant become more difficult today than yesterday? Sometimes things seemed easier in those days. Large families were common, and it appeared that everyone had children. In fact, getting pregnant may be harder today, for several reasons:

People are having children later in life. Over age 25, there is a slight but definite decrease in fertility in women, a decrease that increases dramatically over age 35. Men are also less fertile at older ages.

Male infertility, related to decreased sperm counts, has increased. Many theories circulate as to why this is occurring, with environmental factors being carefully studied.

More men and women have had either a vasectomy or a tubal ligation at a young age and then decided to have another child. Needless to say, they immediately face fertility issues due to their previous choices.

The incidence of sexually transmitted diseases has increased. Some of these diseases, such as chlamydia, cause serious damage to the reproductive organs.

Getting Pregnant Again
If you feel you’ve just begun your family and would like to have more children, you already know the ins and outs of pregnancy over 35. Doubtless you will feel more relaxed about everything should you become pregnant again.

According to a 1995 report from the National Center for Health Statistics, 3.3 million women in the U.S. were at that time experiencing secondary infertility. This number is up from 2.7 million in 1988.

Before you can get pregnant again, you need to fully recover from this pregnancy. It is recommended that you space your pregnancies out with at least six months between them and an optimal spacing of twenty-four to thirty-five months.

An interval shorter than six months between pregnancies is linked to having a low birth-weight baby. It is also a good idea to wait until you are done breastfeeding, since being pregnant and breastfeeding a child can be very taxing on your body.

Women with eating and exercise disorders
Before getting pregnant take control of your weight. A recent study has shown that gaining weight between pregnancies (even as little as seven pounds, and even in women who are not overweight) can increase the risks for you and your future babies. Weight gain increases the risk for diabetes and high blood pressure as well as stillbirth, and it ups the odds of a C-section.

Both underweight and overweight women and women with eating and exercise disorders may have difficulties getting pregnant. Women who desire fertility should be encouraged to accept help with their disordered eating before becoming pregnant. It may not be possible to achieve a 'cure' for the eating disorder before they wish to conceive but small changes in behaviour can help conception.

When underweight women begin to increase their body weight and obese women lose some weight the levels of hormones involved in reproduction improve and ovulation can occur. Decreasing the frequency or ceasing methods of weight loss that are stressful to the body also improves the chances of pregnancy. Learning to eat regularly throughout the day and exercising sensibly may be sufficient for normal weight women, who are recovering from their eating disorder, to conceive.

Getting Pregnant After Age 45
A literature search was performed using EmBase and PubMed for English language articles published between 1970 and 2011, with extractable data on mothers aged ≥45 at the time of delivery and with ≥95% spontaneous conception in the study population. Results: Six such studies with a total pooled number of 505 women were identified. Overall, there is increased maternal morbidity and rates of caesarean section, as well as higher incidence of premature births and admission to special care baby unit.

Contrary to popular belief, career is not always an important factor in delaying childbearing, especially in developing countries. Other factors may include cultural acceptance of large families and lack of contraception, although more research may be carried out in order to explain these hypotheses.

Pooled retrospective data suggest that women who getting pregnant spontaneously after the age of 45 years have increased maternal morbidity and rates of caesarean section, as well as higher incidence of premature births and admission to special care baby unit.
