Any natural BFPs after age 35??

Just curious if anyone has had a BFP after 35 without any help? DH and I have decided that after 3 more cycles, we will seek help (if needed). I am hoping that doesn't need to happen.

Re: Any natural BFPs after age 35??

  • Yes, there are natural BFP's!  Check out Preg after 35 and you will find lots.  Unfortunately a bunch of the ladies that may answer you here have been on this board for a while and are the ones that end up needing treatments. The PG ones move on quickly to the other boards.

  • My BPF was natural, although it ended in a miscarriage so that doesn't totally count. Confused There are lots of women on the Pg over 35 board that conceived naturally... actually a lot in their late 30s / early 40s. There were even some whoopsies on that board too. lol

    How many cycles have you been trying? Are you temping or using OPKs to help get the timing right?


  • I got pregnant on my own at 37 and my daughter is a perfect and healthy 3 year old. Then at 39 I got pregnant on my own but micarried and at 40 I also got pregnant on my own but miscarried.  Guess that is when all the help started coming in, at 40 we went to RE. Best of luck. Get going and you may work out!

    I agree with the other posters.  The only thing I would recommend is if you are having problems to to see a RE sooner than later.  Best of luck, hope it happens for you soon!!

  • when i was 37 i got pg on the first try with my son ... totally natural.

    am 42 and this pg was sort of, kind of natural in that i didn't take any stimulation drugs, but i did do an ovulation trigger shot and iui (and acupuncture)

    of course you can!

    my friend was 39 with her first, it took six cycles (but she wasn't temping or using OPK's)

    my other girlfriend is turning 40 next month, had years of infertility in her early 30's (endo) after a lap, she got pregnant at 37 and is now having her second at 40 in Sept after only two cycles of trying.

  • I got pregnant naturally on the first try at 38 and delivered a healthy baby boy at 39. We are trying for #2 but running into a wall. I am now 40, but DH has low motility and some morph issues. We will probably do IVF with ICSI in July.

  • I work with a woman who told me she knows someone who went through 3 cycles of IVF with no luck.  She then went on to have 3 children naturally in her late 30s.  This boggles my mind and I'm not sure how it's possible, but it gives me hope.
