Pregnancy is one of the milestones in the life of a woman with whom not only the happiness surrounding motherhood comes but also the responsibility of being able to feed another life. The decision does not facilitate travel. One of the most distressing questions on the myriad of issues that are troubling women is, “What is the right age to have a child?” I might not be able to answer that question directly. However, go ahead and read the good and the nights of having a child with your teens until fifties to decide the answer for yourself.

Most teenage pregnancies are not planned and occur by accident. The significant health risks to adolescent pregnancies are pregnancy-related maternal and premature birth and low birth weight in children. Although this is the concern for health, what is worse is the financial discovery that affects both the mother and the child. Anyway, pregnancy under 20 (okay, 18 precisely) is not something that no one should think about.
In Your 20s…
In terms of fertility, your body is at its best when you are in your twenties. However, if you are sufficiently regulated financially and relationally, you and your partner should understand. In addition, the body’s ability to recover from everything that happens during pregnancy is much more effective than later in life.
If you plan to have two or more children, again, from the beginning of your twenties, it’s a better idea. From the physical point of view, you are active and stronger in your 20s, making the procreation process less cumbersome for you. Problems like diabetes, hypertension and heart problems, which could cause complications in pregnancies, are less likely to occur in the 1920s. In addition, you increase with your children and their children, are still not old!
And In The 30s?
Many consider that the 30’s are ideal for conceiving because of the fact that you are better and more financially mentally at this time. Pregnancy in the early 1930s is still not a problem. But the idea to conceive after 35 requires that you understand that your fertility decreases rapidly as you age, even more after 35 years. Women in the late 1930s continue to menstruate each month and ovulate most of the time.
However, eggs that are released may not necessarily be of good quality, and the chances of getting pregnant with this kind of egg quality are difficult. Socio-economic and psychological factors are as important as fertility, but strictly in the biological sense, it is fertility that counts first when you are considering having children. Consider this if you are already in your thirties and planning a family.
How About The 40s?
In today’s era, pregnancy in the 1940s is quite common. This delay in maternal age may not cause serious obstetric repercussions, provided that your existing lifestyle problems are addressed. Gestational diabetes and high blood pressure are the two important problems that can cause a hiccups during your pregnancy.
However, if you can correct these problems with dietary and lifestyle changes, pregnancy in the 1940s is not as alarming as that of the elders. If you are healthy and you can go for regular prenatal exams, you can very well get pregnant in your forties. However, the fertility quotient may be lower than it was when you were younger.
One of the many disadvantages of pregnancy in the 50s is that the quality of egg produced in the female body is radically low. Just like teenage pregnancy, conceiving in the 50’s means you risk gestational diabetes and high blood pressure. Apart from this, the growing fetus is also at risk of premature delivery and mortality. Again, not the right time for design, and it is advisable to take adequate protective measures, as this will not only affect you but also your baby.
