I would tell my friends to get started no later than 30ish if possible just so you have a few years on your side (hopefully) for natural or assisted methods of TTC.
I had an egg reserve blood test this year to see how to plan our next few years. Thankfully the news was positive because the timing wasn't great for TTC right now with mass redundancies where we work. I would encourage anyone concerned about their fertility to get the test done. It's not perfect but it might help you decide whether TTC should be a priority sooner rather than later and help you decide how long to try naturally before considering assistance.

I don't think there is a magical number....I think it depends on the individual. My sis had issues and had IVF at 25.
I assumed I'd have issues too but didnt ever get around to "trying" as such. Have had unprotected twice in my life and have 2 kids when I was 33 and 36
I really feel for those who struggle to fall, I still feel guilty it was so easy for me when my sister and friends had such a hard time.

I just turned 32 last week! Regular periods, no known issues. It's only been 3 cycles so I think it's early days and even if I fell pregnant next cycle I'd consider having fallen pretty easily. However, at 6 months or so I would consider lying to the docs in order to suss things out.

34 and I know that for a fact in my case. It was exponential. At 32 I had eggs and by 35 all gone.

Just read a very interesting article about this (published today and made me think of this thread), using up to date research, not the 300 year old figures used previously!
(You've brought me out of lurking lol)

I conceived all my 3 first month of trying at 35, 37 & 39 years old. I think fertility is different for every women no matter what age.
