The short answer is YES, the long answer is a little more complicated although you can take action today. It's a complex individual answer and solution. Some things you can effect such as life style and other you can't such as genetics.
What are the facts?
You may know that the older you are the chance of conception is reduces, that’s a fact. When human eggs are go through the processes of maturation the can chromosomes become most sticky. Sticky chromosomes do not separate as they should causing errors. This is thought to be the leading cause of miscarriage among older women. It can effects women of all ages but importantly when your 30 you would experience just under 30% although when your 40 it would be very close to 60% and rising quickie year on year after that.
Biological speaking, ideal age to start trying to conceive is early to mid-20s for a woman.
