Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out.

Pregnancy in late age is usually associated with complications like congenital abnormalities and thus will suggest you to avoid if possible.

However, if you are really interested and not getting pregnant, then initially get your husband’s semen analysis done.

If that is normal, then you will need to undergo tests to find out the status of ovulation and the patency of the fallopian tubes. You’ll need to consult a fertility expert for the same. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
