Does age matter in conceiving a baby?

Especially after the age of 35 years, there is a rapid decrease in the egg reservoir of ovaries in woman. In a male, the causes of decrease in fertility is unknown but studies have shown that chances of a female getting pregnant with a male partner of 40 years and above are less.
