Hello doctor,

My fiancee wants to get pregnant within next eight months and is pressurizing me to get married by then. She says that even waiting for one month will be too late as she will turn 30 by then. Will 8 months make such a difference that her body will be deteriorated if she waits until next month?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Theoretically, it is ideal to have pregnancy before thirty especially the first pregnancy as after 30 we say it is elderly pregnancy and there are some inherent complications associated with elderly pregnancy like hypertension, GDM, impaired fetal growth, etc. So it is desirable to have first pregnancy before 30. So you talk to your fiancee and try to find a middle path and tell few months does not make much difference.
