Get pregnant at age 45: is it possible or not?
Female fertility decreases over the years. Yet more and more women are
choosing to become mothers after age 40 But what are the chances of getting
pregnant at age 45? And what are the risks? We make the point.
The pregnancy after 45 seems today almost a fashion. However, female
fertility is limited in time and the longer you wait, the less chance you
have of fulfilling your dream. The spontaneous fertility, in fact, begins to
decrease much after 35 years, it has another decline after 39 and between 40
and 42 is reduced to 5% of what it would have been to 25. "Not only after 39
years increases sensibly the risk of spontaneous abortion and chromosomal
It is just around the age of 42 that this period currently called a fertile
pause begins, in which the hormones still work but the follicles are often
empty or with damaged oocytes.
For all these reasons, at 45 years old, natural pregnancies are exceptional
events and the chances of completing these pregnancies are extremely low.
Pregnant at 45, how does the body respond?
It is essential to have a healthy lifestyle (not smoking, being normal,
practicing physical activity): "A woman over 40 years of age is at risk of
diabetes and hypertension".
In fact, diabetes and gestational hypertension are the two most widespread
problems in cases of pregnancy in old age: "We must always remember that age
is the first factor that puts pregnancy at risk: all these diseases have a
negative impact on the development of fetus and on the growth of the child.
For these reasons, pregnancies in old age are followed much more closely and
there is a much higher percentage of caesarean sections ".
Breastfeeding until when?
Breastfeeding a child up to 3 years is neither harmful
nor useless, as the midwife explains
Often, indeed too often, mothers ask me if their milk is
good for their baby, if it is not very nutritious or if they
have enough. These women must know that breast milk is the
only complete, specific and perfect food for the baby's
Another fear of mothers is whether prolonged breastfeeding
can be detrimental to the child's mental development.
Several studies have shown how the babies who have their
breasts available (as did our great grandparents) abandon it
autonomously and serenely around 3 years. Weaning all
children around 6 months or even earlier is completely wrong
because every child follows his own evolutionary stage.
Pediatricians should advise to wean the baby when the baby:
- Can sit alone without pillows.
- He manages to pass food from one hand to another and bring
it to his mouth alone.
- If the tongue does not come out when a spoon is placed on
the lower lip.
The WHO (World Health Organization) states that a newborn
should be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months of
life, without the introduction of herbal teas, chamomile,
water or food. After the 6 months of life, breastfeeding
should continue in a complementary way to food up to 2 years
of age of the child or until mother and child so desire.
These indications clearly mean that during prolonged
breastfeeding there is no "deadline" for milk that a mother
produces, which is indeed the perfect food for the child and
that should not be stopped because society "imposes" it or,
because those around us criticize our choice.
Science says it: McDonald's fried potatoes help hair
It seems that the ingredient is contained in the oil for frying ...
According to a study conducted in Japan by Yokohama National University, the
oil in which McDonald's chips are fried could avoid baldness and allow men
and women to experiment new colors and haircuts.
We are all in love with our hair and always do our best to prevent it from
falling. The news about their rapid regrowth comes from an unexpected
source, that is, the oil of fast food.
It seems that the dimethylpolysiloxane, an agent that prevents the formation
of foam used in the food industry, has allowed to grow the germs of the hair
follicle. This has been verified to date on hairless rats and, to see if the
same results are obtained on humans, it will be necessary to wait at least
another 5 years. These are the words of Junji Fukuda, one of the scholars
who followed the research published on Biomaterials.
It is clear that plenty of fries, the best friends of the hamburger,
unfortunately will not solve the problem of hair to be collected after a
shower though ... maybe we could afford to eat chips with some sense of
guilt in less, even if this does not will guarantee incredible hair.
Stay pregnant during the cycle: is it possible?
As experts explain, having intercourse during the menstrual cycle does not
eliminate the possibility of pregnancies. This is why it is important to
eliminate doubts and live moments of intimacy with security and
