She and her husband registered their marriage 7 years ago, when they were both starting a media company.

`Since I was 34 years old, I’ve been ‘letting go’ forever, but after a few months I still can’t get pregnant,` Ms. Dung said.

She tried to wait a little longer, because `I heard that after a year of not being pregnant, it is considered infertile.`

The couple went to 16A Ha Dong General Hospital for examination.

Professor, Dr. Nguyen Dinh Tao, former Deputy Director of the Embryology Technology Research and Training Center – Military Medical Academy, Director of 16A Ha Dong General Hospital, said that as you get older, your ovaries are no longer able to function.

The doctor prescribed IVF for Ms. Dung, but the first three times all failed.

Professor Tao examined and advised on infertility for a couple at 16A General Hospital.

Unlike Ms. Dung, Ms. Van became pregnant with her third child when she was 41 years old.

At 32 weeks pregnant, she had abdominal pain. The doctor examined her and discovered severe placental abruption.

Professor Tao said that a mother over 40 years old, pregnant many times, using anesthetic drugs indiscriminately… increases the risk of premature birth.

Ms. Van had emergency surgery, could not keep the baby, but the doctor preserved the mother’s uterus.

According to Professor Tao, giving birth at an older age like Ms. Dung and Ms. Van has the advantage of being more mature in thinking as well as being financially stable, being able to take good care of the child.

`Women over the age of 35 who have just given birth are often at risk of diabetes, miscarriage, premature birth, stillbirth, difficulty giving birth, pre-eclampsia in the mother, mental retardation, and birth defects in the child,` Professor Tao said.

Research shows that a 25-year-old mother has only a 1/1,250 chance of giving birth to a child with Down syndrome;

Doctor Nguyen Ba My Nhi, Deputy Director of Tu Du Hospital, explained that from birth until the end of menstruation, the number of oocytes on the ovaries does not change, estimated at 300,000 oocytes.

At age 35 onwards, ovules tend to decrease in both quantity and quality, making conception more difficult.

`The fetus can die, have abnormal weight, and have birth defects. In some cases, the pregnancy must be terminated early to save the mother’s life. The born baby faces many diseases of premature babies such as infections.`

Many people today focus on studying, work…, getting married late, and having children late.

Doctors advise that women who are 35 years old and have not gotten pregnant after 6 months of trying need to be actively examined and treated, not to wait.

Like Ms. Dung, after three failed rounds of IVF, the fourth time was lucky enough to be successful.

And Ms. Van now `doesn’t dare to get pregnant again`.
