Mathematics for your Pregnancy

A new mathematical model will now help couples to predict the chances of getting pregnant, this to be done based on how long they have been trying. This study conducted by London School of Economics and the University of Warwick are said to have also shed some light on how long couples should wait before seeking medical advice.

In the research it was found that if a woman is 35 years of age then after six months of trying her chance of getting pregnant reduces by 10% in her next cycle. The analysis on which the record was based on uses the number of menstrual cycles over which a couple has been trying to have a baby. The finding says that after several tries and failures during the menstrual cycles, a couple becomes increasingly low on fertility. This is the reason why pregnancy in the next cycle becomes less likely. Dr. Peter Sozou from London School of Economics said that at 25, a woman takes 13 menstrual periods before her chance of pregnancy in each new cycle has declined to below 10%, according to the model. The number of months required to reach a conception chance below 10% cycle is 10 at age 30, and just six at age 35.There is quite a good chance of conception if the couple keeps trying.

So, here is the math for you, do what you should now!
