QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hi, I am 35 yrs. old and trying to get pregnant we have been trying for years, yet I never went to the doctor any. I am over weight and I recently stop smoking. What are my chances of still getting pregnant and having a healthy baby?

ANSWER

Couples who have been actively trying to conceive for more than one year should have both parties checked. Many of the problems are VERY easy to fix, some are not. Given your age, I'd say you need to get help yesterday.

Good luck!
