Infertility Issues Arise in Indian Women Aged 35 and Above

A city-based fertility clinic conducted a study to compare the age of conception and the reasons for the failure compared to their western counterparts.

The results show that 68% of women seeking fertility treatments were aged 31 years and above, with over 36% being between 31-35 years and 32% above 35 years.


The study concluded that Indian women should not delay pregnancy as probability to conceive after 35 years of age.

7000 patients undergoing fertility treatment in Nova IVI Fertility (NIF), a subsidiary of Nova Medical Centers were enrolled for the study.

The main reason to seek for fertility treatments was mainly poor ovarian response (POR), that is, the quality of eggs in Indian women deteriorates after age of 35 and women have to depend on donor eggs to conceive, the study explained.

NIF executive director Dr Manish Banker said that women aged over 31 years of age had issues of infertility. "The study also raised concerns that the biggest cause behind the infertility was POR in women after 35 years of age," he said.
