Yes. A woman’s fertile life begins with menstruation (around the age of 12) and ends with menopause (which usually occurs between the ages of 40 and 50). The best reproductive age for a woman is between 20 and 30 years old, gradually beginning to decrease from 30 years onwards due to the decline of the ovaries’ reproductive potential. By age 40, a woman’s chance of getting pregnant is less than 5% per cycle with her natural eggs.

Yes, you can gestate and have a baby at 35, however, you must consider that – due to the natural decrease in the quality and quantity of your eggs (especially in the second half of your 30s onwards) – you could have problems when trying to conceive. As the years go by, the risks of suffering complications before and during pregnancy increase, both for the mother and the baby. If you are 35 years or older, and you suspect that you have fertility problems, it is recommended that you visit a specialist.

Yes. Women with tubal ligation and men with vasectomy (or vas deferens ligation) can still have children. These surgeries are considered permanent sterilization methods, however, various treatments make it possible to conceive a baby again, such as In Vitro Fertilization, where the fallopian tubes are not necessary to achieve fertilization since it is carried out outside the woman’s body, in a laboratory. For men, there are options such as vasectomy reversal (vasovasostomy), sperm aspiration, or testicular biopsy.

In vitro fertilization is one of the most popular assisted reproductive methods thanks to its high pregnancy success rates. The cost of an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) depends on the needs of the patient and their evolution, as well as a series of factors such as:

  • Medications for ovarian stimulation.
  • Previous ambulatory procedures. 
  • Egg aspiration / freezing / transfer.
  • The use of specialized laboratory equipment.

On average, the cost of an In Vitro Fertilization in Mexico is $7,500 USD (all inclusive). In the United States, the same procedure ranges between $10,000 – $ 13,000 USD (without medications), which means that performing this treatment in Tijuana represents considerable savings.

The reproductive capacity of a woman is mainly affected by the decrease of her ovarian reserve (quantity and quality), which is generally associated with age; however, this reserve can also be affected by genetic or hereditary factors, as well as by other conditions like: premature menopause, ovarian surgeries, smoking, exposure to chemicals and certain medications, among others.

  • When you have spent more than a year having unprotected sex without getting pregnant.
  • Women who wish to start a family without a partner.
  • Couples or members of the LGBT+ community who desire to start a family and want to know their alternatives and options.
  • Women over 35 years of age who have not managed to get pregnant after 6 months of trying.
  • Couples where one of the members has previously undergone voluntary sterilization procedures (tubal ligation or vasectomy).
  • Couples where one of them is a cancer survivor and underwent surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiotherapy.
  • Women who wish to preserve their fertility, either due to the decision to postpone motherhood or have been affected by ovarian surgeries, autoimmune diseases, or cancer.

A fertility specialist – also referred to as a reproductive endocrinologist (RE) – is a doctor who has specific training in the area of ​​maternity, specializing in gynecology, obstetrics, and human reproduction, where the complete development of pregnancy is studied from conception. This specialist also diagnoses and treats conditions associated with both male and female infertility.

Depending on the patient’s health history and symptoms, different types of tests may be needed to determine if there are infertility issues.

For females:

  • Ovulation testing.
  • Hysterosalpingography.  
  • Ovarian reserve testing.
  • Imaging tests.  
  • Hysteroscopy. 
  • Laparoscopy.

For males:

  • Hormonal blood testing.
  • Semen analysis. 
  • Testicles biopsy. 
  • Genetic testing.

Not being able to conceive generally causes psychological problems, such as stress, sadness, and/or depression. Couples therapy is highly recommended when the desire to conceive involves both parties. The mental care of women before and after pregnancy is essential, as fertility treatments involve several stages through which patients can experience complex emotions, like the initial diagnosis, receiving the results, expectations and the length of the treatments, among others.
