Women are suffering from a low fertility-IQ.
A new survey from the National Infertility Association, found that less than half of women could correctly answer 7 out of 10 basic questions about their own fertility. Many of them didn’t understand how long it takes to get pregnant or how dramatically fertility drops off after a woman hits 30!
Dr. William Schoolcraft is the medical director for the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine. And he says most women don’t even think about infertility issues until they’re trying to conceive a child. And in many cases, that could be in a woman’s thirties or forties. By that time, the likelihood that she can naturally conceive is far lower than most women know.
A healthy woman in her 30’s has about a one in five chance of getting pregnant……and once forty rolls around it’s more like one in twenty.
So why are women in the dark when it comes to understanding their own fertility?
Well, the problem is many of them don’t look or feel as old as they actually are. But whether they look 40 or not, their reproductive system keeps aging.
High-profile celebrity moms also reinforce the idea it’s never too late to start a family. J.Lo and Mariah recently had twins and they’re both in their forties. They make it look easy, but the reality is they have access to the best fertility treatments money can buy. For women in the real world having a baby past 40 can be expensive, hard on their health and even plain old impossible.
So if you’re thinking about having a baby, and you’re 30 or beyond, get the facts at Resolve.org, the website for the National Infertility Association.
