6 Surprising Ways Your Body Changes After 30

Thirty is hardly old, but as we all know, our bodies change with age, and there are a few things which happen after you pass the 30 mark.

You'll start noticing signs of aging: Aging is a natural part of life, but in your twenties, you don't seem to notice it. However, after 30 you will start to see visible signs of aging such as fine lines on the face and wrinkles on the neck.

The risk of falling pregnant is reduced: The chances of falling pregnant in your twenties are much greater than in your thirties. In fact, after age 35 the chances of having a baby tend to be quite dramatically reduced, and this is because of the changes in fertility.

Your metabolism will slow down: According to Shape magazine, in your thirties, your metabolism will start to slow down and you will experience gradual bone and muscle loss. This can result in weight gain, and it will be harder to keep off that weight than it was in your twenties. The good news is that regular exercise will help you to continue burning fat.

Changes in your menstrual cycle: In your mid-thirties, you can reportedly expect some changes in your menstrual cycle because the estrogen and progesterone levels decrease.

Bladder weakness: According to The Sun, you can expect a weaker bladder, especially in women who have had children. Dr. Jessica Shepherd, who is the assistant professor of clinical obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, revealed that urinary incontinence affects a high percentage of women (around 25 percent to 45 percent).

Sex drive: There is some good news though, because according to research women aged between 27 to 45 have more sexual thoughts than those in their 20s. This also means there's an increased sex drive.
