The most important factor affecting a woman's chance to conceive and have a healthy child is age. As women ages their fertility declines. A study was conducted on a total of 300 married women undergoing infertility treatments at the selected infertility centres. The main aim of the research was to study the impact of age on infertility in female population. Information from subject was collected through a self constructed questionnaire and data gathered was age of subject and age of subject’s husband, number of years the couple has been married, age at marriage and number of years since trying for baby. Regarding age it was seen that 51% of female where lying in the age group of 25-30 years of age, 17% were in the age between 31 years and 35 years. It was also seen that infertility was even seen in female below 25 years and above 26 years of age as 25% and 7% respectively. It was also seen that around half of the subjects (54%) got married even before they turned 20 years of age. Based on the study results it can be deduced that age have a significant impact on fertility in female. Although it might not be the only factor but are an important aspect which should not be ignored.
