Are we too old to try for a baby?

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner wants to have a baby but I’m worried I’m too old to get pregnant.

I’m a grandma aged 46 and last summer I moved in with my new man, who’s a granddad aged 54.

We are deeply in love and have a great relationship and an active sex life that would put younger couples to shame.

One night, while we were in bed, he said he thinks the thing that would cement our relationship is a child of our own.

I’d love to have another baby, even though it would be ­younger than my grandkids – but we’ve been trying for months now and nothing is happening.

I still have regular periods, yet can’t seem to get pregnant. Is there anything I can do?

DEIDRE SAYS: Many 40-plus women do conceive.

However, there is no denying that your odds of getting pregnant are lower than just a few years ago, and there’s a much higher chance of miscarriage and other pregnancy problems too.

Do have a proper think if this is the right path.

It’s important that you talk to your GP, who can refer you to a fertility specialist for tests.

In the meantime my leaflet, Want To Have A Baby?, offers lots of advice.
