Had laser surgery for disc collapse. Trying to conceive. Is it safe to become pregnant at 36 years?

Hi, Doc, Thank you, in advance. I am 36 years old, and trying for my second child, my first child she is 10 years of age, before you start guessing the reason being unfortunatly I had disk collapse for last 5 or 6 years. Last year, I had laser surgery and now the problem is gone, feeling much much better feels like I am living my life again, now the question is my GP is telling me I don t have chances of getting pregnant because of my age? We have not taken notice of what he has said and trying for last 2 months, would love to have a brother for my doughter. Thank you again.

Thanks for writing to us.
Age does not matter as long as you are having normal regular periods. It is better to consult an infertility specialist for guidance regarding an early conception. She might suggest some hormonal evaluation too.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
