How hard is it to get pregnant at 42? Anyone tips?

Given your chances of getting pregnant naturally when you are over 40 is drastically reduced, you should probably go and get an ovary reserve fertility test done - you may not even have any left. At your age, it can be difficult to get pregnant naturally because generally there are very few good eggs still in reserve in the ovaries, if at all. You may need some help. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you, and if you have already been trying and had no success, go and speak to a fertility specialist. Every day that passes you are less fertile.

That's not to say it won't happen. Plenty of people have success at this age, but more people have no success.
