    I think the odds start declining once a woman hits 35, but pregnancy can definitely still happen at 38. I have a friend who had her first baby at that age.

    Simple fact - if you don't want a baby - use birth control no matter what the age until full menopause is obvious.  (full menopause is one year with no periods at all and usually happens sometime after the age of 50 - although sooner is possible)

    The chance of pregnancy at 38 really depends on the couple.  I know of a few people who had a surprise baby after the age of 38 and never used a fertility plan to get pregnant.  

    If she is still ovulating and he still has active sperm, then pregnancy is still possible.

    Around 30% chance.

    Less than at 28, and even less than at 18, but the vast majority of women have not started menopause by that age so for many it's still possible, though between that and the partner also likely being older that does make the need for fertility treatments more likely. The man's age matters, too, and if her husband is 40 then his sperm count and quality isn't going to be what it was when he was 20.

    well, it depends on if youre in menopause or not. if you are, then no, theres pretty much no chance of getting pregnant. although 38 is pretty young for menopause, it can still happen. id say that you have an okay chance of getting pregnant.

    Each woman is different. Same for the man. There is odds or percentage for pregnancy based only on age.
