Women Age Fertility Rate




In the uterus, women have about 6 to 7 million eggs and when they’re born that number goes down to reach about 2 million. When women are ovulating and having periods, it’s about 200,000 eggs, explains Dr. Alejandra Salazar, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida.
In every cycle multiple eggs mature and women are losing them in every cycle. This causes infertility and the age of them.
Women should see a fertility doctor if they have been trying for a year consistently and cannot get pregnant.
