It’s a ques­tion that has both­ered women for gen­er­a­tions: When is the right time to start hav­ing kids and how many do you want?

Dutch sci­en­tists claim to have cal­cu­lated the ex­act age that women should con­sider start­ing a fam­ily and even which age they must start at if they want a cer­tain num­ber of chil­dren.

Ac­cord­ing to, women who want three chil­dren, with­out re­sort­ing to In Vitro Fer­til­i­sa­tion, should have their first child at the age of 23.

If three kids are too much, then the age of 32 is per­fectly fine to start a fam­ily, the sci­en­tists found.

The team used data from 58 000 women to study how fer­til­ity declines with age.
