Getting Pregnant With A Younger Man

by Ash

I am just wondering how likely it is to get pregnant. I am 27 with endometriosis and my partner is only 19. I have tried in the past to conceive but wasn’t successful.

I'm not trying to get pregnant at this moment but I am curious as to whether his age and high fertility rate would increase my chances of conception. Not that I would be complaining if I got pregnant, I would love to have a baby I’m just not sure if this precise moment in my life is right. Any feedback would be great. Thanks and please no criticism.


Hi Ash,

The age difference is not a problem in order for you to get pregnant.

While women’s egg quality depends on age (over 35), man sperm is not so much affected by age (under 50).

At 19 your partner will be able to make healthy sperm if his life style is healthy. Avoiding heavy drinking, chemicals like pesticides and smoking is very important to maintain healthy sperm production. Younger men have usually normal levels of testosterone and higher sex drive, which makes them more fertile.

If pregnancy is something you may want to consider in the future, I think that is important for you to look into natural ways to treat and prevent endometriosis. Endometriosis is dependent upon your diet and your hormonal balance.

Lean more about the endometriosis diet for prevention.

Many Blessings!

To preserve one's fertility is important with PCOS as ovulation may not happen regularly. It is often easier to treat PCOS naturally than endometriosis, but with PCOS diet is really important, especially if there are problems with weight management issues as women with PCOS tend to exhibit insulin resistance.
