2. Fertility Declines

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), women between the ages of 40 and 44 face a 30% chance of infertility when trying to get pregnant. In contrast, women under the age of 34 have a 9% chance of infertility. Why? As a woman ages, she has fewer eggs, and those that she does have aren't as healthy. Plus, she's more likely to have other health conditions that could impact fertility.
