Yes you can conceive however it is the egg quality that significantly deteriates with our age, at between 30-35 years are eggs become old and at risk for gentic as well as other birth defects. Unlike men, who reproduce their sperm on a supply and demand, women are born with the number of eggs the will carry through out their life thus causing them susptable to ageing. I am a Nurse, OB/Gyn. I hope this information helps !
