VANCOUVER, CANADA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Actress Halle Berry’s surprise pregnancy at 46 seems to be part of a growing trend of celebrity and real-life women getting pregnant in their mid-forties. But how easy is it to get pregnant after forty?

This is one of the questions that Dr Albert Yuzpe (fertility expert at Olive Fertility Centre), and a panel of fertility experts including Dr Victor Chow (male fertility specialist) and Lorne Brown (fertility acupuncturist and clinical director of Acubalance Wellness Centre), will be answering at a public information talk on infertility, May 22, as part of Canadian Infertility Awareness Week 2013. “The purpose of this talk is to empower couples with information and tools to make decisions about starting their family and optimizing their chances of getting pregnant either naturally or with IVF,” says Dr Yuzpe.

“Many women dont realize that getting pregnant at 46 naturally or even with IVF (using your own eggs) is like winning the lottery,” he explains.

A recent Statistics Canada report, co-authored by Dr Yuzpe, shows that infertility in Canada has nearly doubled in the last two decades. “The main cause of infertility is age,” explains Dr Yuzpe, “but most women are woefully unaware of how quickly their fertility begins to decline after 35. I tell any patient over the age of 37 that they need to be as proactive as possible in trying to get pregnant. Along with testing for egg quality and ovarian function, we recommend supplements and lifestyle changes that can help maximize fertility in both men and women.”
