Posted by: Pauline | 2008/07/22

age &  pregnancy

I' m turning 35 next year - I was planning to get pregnant around September this year, but I' m now starting a new job 1st of September - will waiting for 2-3 months increase my risk of abnormalities due to my age?

After 35 years, there is an increased risk of Down syndrome. This risk does not increase significantly in 2-3 months but, with each year, it is higher.
