Can I become a mother after 40?
The lifestyle, career commitments, the lack of a stable partner, the desire, the living situation or simply that the right time to become a mother has not arrived.
There are different reasons why motherhood is increasingly postponed in our country.
In Spain, less than a third of women become mothers before the age of 30. In fact, 60% of mothers have their first child between the ages of 30 and 39, and 6.6% of women have their first child at the age of 40 and onwards - one of the highest numbers compared to other European countries.
Late motherhood, despite having a positive* side, also has some downsides.
The chances of a successful pregnancy is directly linked to the age of the woman: the older the woman, the lower the quality of the egg, and therefore it becomes more difficult to become a mother. They may also suffer from risky pregnancies (spontaneous miscarriages and caesarean sections) and increased chances of congestive malformations.
From the age of 40 onwards, the chances of getting pregnant with your own eggs drop significantly.
This is why at Juaneda Fertility we offer different options and solutions so that women do not have to give up motherhood because of their age.
The treatment of choice for women over 40 is usually the use of donated eggs, due to their excellent results. But it is a technique that, for personal reasons, many women do not want to contemplate because they have a strong desire to be mothers with their own eggs, and therefore their own DNA.
Women who wish to have children with their own DNA decide for egg vitrification, a simple and easy technique recommended for those women who know for sure that they will want to be mothers, but for whom the time has not come yet.
The process is very fast and simple.
It involves hormonal stimulation with the aim to get as many manure eggs as possible compared to the one in a natural cycle and a follicular puncture under sedation.
The eggs we obtain are frozen through the vitrification technique and the survival rate is almost 100%.
The eggs remain frozen for as long as needed until they are used.
When the mother feels that the time has come, they are thawed and inseminated with the semen of the partner or donor.
Going back to the question at the beginning, yes, with Juaneda Fertility you can become a mother after the age of 40.

*According to research of the University of Southern California, giving birth after age 35 improves the mother's mental abilities due to the increase in hormones -estrogens and progesterone- during pregnancy and, as a consequence, has a positive effect on the brain chemistry and its effect increases when the mother ages.
