3. Fertility naturally declines with age

Statistics from across the western world show that women today try to start families at an older age. For example, figures for the UK show that sixty years ago most women married by the age of 23, but now it is common to wait until the late 20s or early 30s before trying to start a family. While social changes lead couples to postpone childbearing, how the passage of years affects the woman's biological clock remains unchanged. For some couples, the age they try to start a family will not be the issue, but later they start the greater the prospect of infertility problems.
