Interview with 

Sarah Smith, GP


Katie Haylor asked GP Sarah Smith what advice she would give to people thinking about thier fertility...

Sarah- I think once you’re over the age of 25 your fertility does start to decline, and once you’re over 35 it declines even more quickly, so I think don’t leave it too late. Do if you’re having problems come along and see us and talk about it. We can refer you. You can have tests done. I did read one statistic of ladies who are married over the age of 40, 4 in 10 will get pregnant but 6 out of 10 can have problems, so leave it too late and do think about all your options. Stay safe, have safe sex, and just a healthy lifestyle to maximise your fertility.
