Pregnancy at 40+ – opportunities and risks of artificial insemination
There are many different factors that contribute to a high-risk pregnancy – general lifestyle and organ health, as well as hormonal and genetic causes can all play a role. The biggest risk factor for a pregnancy, however, is the woman’s age. Where the natural pregnancy rate for young couples is still at around 30%, it drops to 8% after a woman turns 40. However, our past results indicate hope for successful treatment – we have been able to significantly exceed the natural pregnancy rates in all age groups. Although there are risks, the aim of our efforts is, on the one hand, to always improve the prospects of success and on the other hand, to minimize the stress of the treatment. In this regard, you can rely on our many years of experience and our high quality standards. Here you can learn more about high-risk pregnancies and the risks of artificial insemination.
The signs of pregnancy – how do I know if it worked?
After artificial insemination, the waiting starts: when a period is missed for the first time, a pregnancy test is performed to provide certainty as to whether the transfer was successful. However, the first signs of pregnancy can already make itself felt before this, e.g.:
- Persistent fatigue
- Tenderness in your breasts
- Irritability and mood swings
