Hi ,
35 yrs is the upper limit for reproductive age, theoretically. But don't get anxious, my patient 41 yrs had twin after treatment ( married 15 yrs) !!
I hope the Ultrasound scan reports showed no polyps or fibroids
Kindly see if the following checklist of investigations is done
Husband- Semen analysis at least 2- done 4 weeks apart preferably in an infertility center ( examination done by andrologist), Blood sugars
Wife - Blood Sugars, Thyroid profile
Serum AMH in first 10 days of periods, to know number of eggs in
ovaries
Ultrasound scans to evaluate Uterus , Ovaries & adnexa
Confirm tubal patency- most important- Tube is the connection
between uterus & ovaries( the bridge where sperm meets the egg &
forms a baby) this is size of hair follicle & cannot be seen on scans.
So check with HSG( Xray with dye), or SSG ( Scan with dye) or
Laparoscopy
Direct examination also to rule out infection around uterus ( PID), where you can have bleeding on & off with vaginal discharge, itching, pain during sex etc. can be corrected by good course of medicines for both husband & wife at a time. If both not treated , can get re-infected when you have sex next time.
If all this done & found normal , nothing can stop a pregnancy with God's will
If any of these investigations show a problem, don't hesitate to go ahead with IUI or IVF, as you can't wait too long. After 40 yrs chances of pregnancy is very low
Hope I have clarified your query
