Most women have a doubt of when to get pregnant for the first, for second time, after a miscarriage, etc. This article will give detailed overview on when to get pregnant.

When to get pregnant for the first time?

Getting pregnant for the first time is an intense desire for each woman. Some women avoid pregnancy due to their career or some other reasons, while some women want to get pregnant immediately after the mirage. The answer for this question depends on whom you ask.

Most studies suggested that the best age to have kids is when you are physically, mentally and financially ready. Women are usually at their physical peak in their twenties, but mentally they may be 10 or more years away from starting a family. Financially some women may not be secured until they reach their retirement age. So, depending on the individual situation, you can plan when to have the first child. However, the aim should be to have the baby before 35, certainly by 37. After 35 years, it becomes more difficult to have the baby. After 35, the number and quality of the eggs are decreased a lot. It is very much difficult for women as life expectancy is increasing, which is now 80-85 years. The right time to have kids is in your late 20s or early 30s.
