How Age and Health Affect Fertility

 Here's a great little snippet on how age and health affect fertility.  

"The number of eggs steadily declines throughout  a woman's life whether she’s on birth control pills or pregnant, the eggs decline.  As a woman ages the number of healthy eggs decline so that at age 30 most of the eggs will be normal, but after age 38,  50% of the eggs will be abnormal. The chance of conceiving after 38 declines very much...For a woman who’s in her mid-thirties and in a committed relationship, go ahead and think about having a child sooner than later.  For those not in a committed relationship, egg freezing has become a real viability and it is not as costly as patients believe."

Check out this short interview with Reproductive Endocrinologist Robert Weiss.

Fan of the Week - Michael Fishman

I loved watching Roseanne back in the day.  She was sarcastic, slightly irritable and didn't give a damn what other people thought.  (In my opinion, all good qualities.)  Plus, the way she teased and taunted her kids made me laugh.  She dished out enough parental harassment to show that she loved them like crazy, then heaped on the attitude to emphasize who was the boss of that little house in Lanford.

Little did I know that one day I would meet DJ Conner in the flesh.
