Of the 1,000 adults surveyed, ages 25 to 44, nearly 40% said they are currently suffering or struggling with infertility when trying to conceive. About half (46%) of respondents wish they had started meeting their personal fertility needs at an earlier age.
“The Bay Area millennials are focused on their careers, marry later, and want to wait until they feel financially secure before starting to build families,” said Dr. Salli Tazuke, Co-Founder and Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist at CCRM Fertility in San Francisco. “More and more couples are waiting until their mid-30s to have children. Most women don’t realize, however, that by the age of 35 they only have a 15% chance of getting pregnant each month, and that drops to less than 5% Chance up to the age of 40. “
Additional factors like COVID-19 also impacted family planning in 2021. Around 13% of people surveyed fear having a baby or being pregnant during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Unfortunately, our biological clocks keep ticking, regardless of the reasons why we decided to delay building the family,” explains Dr. Tazuke.
Fertility patient Hailey Manning At the age of 36, she began conceiving naturally with her husband in 2016. After trying various fertility treatments for years, including two failed embryo transfers, she and her husband decided to switch fertility clinics. After an IVF cycle at CCRM Fertility in San Francisco, they now have a beautiful little girl. Hailey is passionate about encouraging young women to educate themselves about their fertility health and invest in maintaining fertility.
“My advice to younger women is to run, not run, to get your eggs. In the Bay Area, people are more focused on their careers; you don’t get married at 23 and have a baby at 25. And while you Building your career, jumping your balls off cliffs. People should address their fertility needs sooner. I wish we had. “
