Fertility IQ

Take one female, age 30 + one healthy male = a baby, right?

20%!

A woman at age 30 has only a 20% chance of conceiving each month. How many of us actually knew that? A survey by EMD Serono Inc.  is discovering NOT MANY. Quite remarkable considering I was informed by my mother at a very young age that young ladies could get pregnant remarkably easy (insert anything that involved any interaction with the opposite sex).

What they discovered in the survey (administered by RESOLVE) was that most women didn’t understand the impact age had on fertility. The link below has the full article.
