British magazines, Lancet, have explained the relationship between fertility and the age of women. As the first journal explains, the critical age of Dutch women is 31.

According to the second journal, the oocytes are the ones that have the most responsibility in the descent of the female reproduction, although the body supports well the conditions of pregnancy.

It is known that as the age advances, reproduction descends. In addition, since in today's society women become increasingly pregnant, this topic is of special importance.

Thus, an investigation was conducted among women who never had children. 751 women were artificially fertilised of which 555 were pregnant and 461 women had children in good health. From this study it was deduced that from the 31 years the employer begins to descend.

In addition, the probability of having a baby with good health decreases by 3.5% annually from 31 years.
