Two reasons: Mutation in your eggs which are caused by either being exposed to radiation, toxic substances, or certain environments which damage your eggs’ DNA. The older you get, the longer you’ve been exposed to all this stuff so the chances are that most of those eggs have been more exposed at age 35 than at age 15 to harm. When you get pregnant with one of those eggs, the chances of getting a defective egg increase.Second reason: birth defects can occur during development, which could be due to changes in the uterus, which is now older, or changes in amniotic fluid volume, which could decrease with age. These structural changes in your body that occur with age, might increase the risk of birth defects.
women only produce a certain amount of eggs in their lifetime.in other words women are born with the eggs that they have..no more are created. it makes sense that the older the eggs the more risk of the egg being defective in some way. Men dont have that problem because their bodies make sperm and can physically get someone pregnant until they die..
