At What Age Should a Woman Become Pregnant?

What are the Best Ages for Women to Become Pregnant

Historically, across cultures, it has been the norm for older males to marry younger females, so that women bore children early in life.

In recent years, with the widespread postponing of female marriage and maternity, the age of female pregnancy has taken an unhealthy turn for the older. Not only is older pregnancy more dangerous and uncertain for women, but just getting pregnant in the first place becomes more difficult for most women, the older they become.

The late teens or early twenties are best biologically, according to John Mirowsky, a sociologist at the University of Texas at Austin. That’s when “oocytes are fresh and the body’s reproductive and other systems are at a youthful peak,” he wrote. (link is external) Women in their twenties are least likely to have developed chronic health problems that would put them or their babies at risk, and they have the lowest rates of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, and infertility.

Younger Eggs are Healthier

Younger Eggs are Healthier

Women who had had babies after age 35, Alonzo found, had higher systolic blood pressure, higher blood glucose, poorer health as assessed by a physician, and poorer mobility later in life than women who had had all their babies before 35. __

A woman is strongest, with eggs that are healthiest, between the ages of 16 and 30. As a woman ages beyond that interval, her ability to become pregnant and maintain a healthy pregnancy — and her risks of a bad gestational outcome for the child — grow larger.

What are the Best Ages for Men to Impregnate a Woman?

The question of the best age for male paternity is more complex. According to multiple studies, children of older fathers have significant advantages in terms of longevity and immunity. This finding is politically incorrect, and is a tremendous blow to the feminist overlords of western societies.

Telomeres, measured in blood samples, were longer in individuals whose fathers were older when they were born.

The telomere lengthening seen with each year that the men delayed fatherhood was equal to the yearly shortening of telomere length that occurs in middle-aged adults.

Telomere lengthening was even greater if the child’s paternal grandfather had also been older when he became a father.

… “As paternal ancestors delay reproduction, longer telomere length will be passed to offspring, which could allow lifespan to be extended as populations survive to reproduce at older ages.” __ BBC

Contrary to the telomere shortening that occurs with age in somatic cells, older men have longer sperm TL than younger men, and as such offspring of older fathers inherit longer TL (Kimura et al., 2008). This is believed to result from a high level of a telomere-lengthening enzyme (telomerase) in the testes. We recently demonstrated that this paternal age at conception effect persists across at least two generations: the paternal grandfather’s age at conception of the father predicts the TL of grandchildren, independent of and additive to the effect of the father’s age at his own conception (Eisenberg et al., 2012). These findings raise the intriguing and testable hypothesis that societal trends toward delayed age at male reproduction may themselves lead to the transmission of longer telomeres that contribute to a lengthening of late-life function and life expectancy—and conversely that earlier ages at male reproduction will lead to shorter telomeres (Eisenberg and Kuzawa, 2013). __ Intergenerational Inheritance

More on this type of study

Here is more on the evolutionary advantages of older men siring offspring with younger women:

Our analysis shows that old-age male fertility allows evolution to breach Hamilton’s wall of death and predicts a gradual rise in mortality after the age of female menopause without relying on ‘grandmother’ effects or economic optimality,” the researchers say in the paper.

… “We conclude that deleterious mutations acting after the age of female menopause are selected against … solely as a result of the matings between older males and younger females.” __

It is politically correct to claim that children of older fathers are more at risk of a number of diseases, such as autism and schizophrenia. And yet the statistical evidence for such claims is extremely weak — not to mention fraught with political overtones.

A 2009 review of the broad array of literature on this topic concluded that there is no conclusive evidence to claim that older fathers are responsible for poor gestational outcomes — if the age of the mother is taken into account. In other words, younger mothers tend to provide for better outcomes — statistically — whether fathers are older or younger. More research is, of course, needed. [More]

Research that claims an ill effect from late male paternity is highly contradictory, and has been subjected to much-deserved criticism on methodological grounds.

Testosterone supplementation for older fathers may help to improve the quality of sperm, in certain cases. In others, sperm may be tested and selected for best quality and vigour using in vitro methods.

Genetic testing of fetuses of older gestating women is more difficult, and subject to serious complications. Best to avoid such risks as far as possible, and for women to give birth at younger, healthier ages.

One complicating factor: Most western women — as a direct result of a male-hating feminism and the ideological dumbing down of education — are emotionally unfit for parenthood until the age of 30 or later. This suggests that young women should either freeze their eggs for later use, or that older women wishing to become pregnant should use the donated eggs of younger women. Alternatively, young women could bear children and allow older, more mature couples to raise them.

Healthy sperm from older men — with longer telomeres — may become more highly valued as better research is published.

Age and fertility for women

Pathological radical feminism that has taken over western governments, universities, and media, has outlived its expiration date. Perhaps it is time to take more active measures, before western cultures go extinct?

    Reminds me a little of Robert Hinlene’s (bad spelling sorry) book “Time Enough For Love” where they paid parents to have offspring latter in life so that the people would live longer. The guy was a nut but had some great insights.

      Every human being is a nut, but only a few have great insights. The delusion of “normality” keeps people in the corral and prevents them from learning from their mistakes and moving forward. Will try to elaborate on that idea later.

      Older men may offer that opportunity due to the telomerase in the testicles. The germ cells of women develop much earlier,, and are depleted by the time she is in late middle age. There is no sign that older women’s eggs have longer telomeres. Thus the importance of using young eggs (and younger healthier bodies) to bear children.

      Women who have children after age 35 run a number of risks that would not be necessary had they used a bit of forethought. Of course, sometimes the risk is worth it! 😉
