The findings showed that expecting women aged 38-39 were 43 percent more likely to have a miscarriage than women aged 18-34, and women aged 40-42 were almost twice as likely to lose the baby as the younger age group.

Professor Siladitya Bhattacharya, of the Reproductive Medicine team at the university, said that the IVF treatment comprises a number of key steps, and they found that influence of age is sustained at each stage of the process.
