Being a mother when a desired

Times have changed, motherhood too, and today many women do not even consider having children at their most fertile. Therefore, from the specialty of reproductive medicine treatments are recommended that allow women to be mothers when they want.

In this sense, professionals have today a very important social task. We have been trying for years to convince women of the importance of not postponing motherhood beyond the age of 35.. Many times the lack of information deprives those women that in the future they can be mothers with their own gametes.



The reality is that most of the women with 30 years old now put forward other projects that demand all their attention to motherhood. At age 30 we do not consider a motherhood and it seems very justifiable but, the problem is when we turn 38 and we see it still far away. Oocyte quality decreases with age. From the age of 35, fertility decreases and the chances of pregnancy with our own ovules are decreasing.

The preservation of fertility

To be a mother when one wishes, the preservation of fertility is a technique increasingly used and with good results since oocytes of the highest quality are stored. Two profiles of women could benefit from the preservation of fertility: women between 25-35 years, without children but with a clear desire to have them in the future and women with more than 35 years, without a partner, who know that the decrease their fertility and prefer to find a partner before having children.

It is essential that reproductive experts make available to all women of reproductive age information about the possibility of preserving fertility, and about the opportunity offered by the Spanish Law of Assisted Human Reproduction to be single mothers by choice.. FIV Madrid is a center with more than 20 years dedicated exclusively to Assisted Reproduction and for years we are dedicated to inform our patients about the importance of their age when it comes to getting a pregnancy.
