A new study from Denmark has found that three out of every four women starting fertility treatment will have a baby within five years, whether as a result of the treatment or by getting pregnant naturally. The study looked at the records of nearly 20,000 Danish women having fertility treatment, and found that more than half had a baby within two years and 71% after five years. Most had their children as a result of fertility treatment, but 14% got pregnant without treatment.
The researchers found that age made a significant difference when it came to whether women were going to have a child – after five years, 80% of women under 35 had given birth compared with 60.5% of women aged 35-40 and 26% of women who were 40 or above. You can read more about the study here.
