The Biological Clock Myth

The concept of the biological clock has been a source of stress for women for as long as anyone can remember. Women approaching the age of thirty are warned of the limited time- frame for achieving pregnancy. Most doctors proclaim that waiting to have kids after the age of thirty-five is risky, maybe even impossible. Yet, new perceptions are suggesting that this so-called fact has no real basis in medical research and that age is not the major factor determining a woman’s ability to conceive.

Keeping Women Down

A new theory suggests that becoming pregnant has little to do with age and involves other factors such as stress, genetics and overall health. It is interesting to note that some women have trouble conceiving in their twenties, while a woman can find herself pregnant by accident even at forty. Some radical feminist voices claim that the time limit is a conspiracy intended to protect the patriarchal system, as if financial independence through pursuing a career would give women too much freedom of choice, and lower birth numbers.

Though there is some truth to the notion that there is a slow decline in fertility as people age, it is true of both sexes, and less dramatic than suggested. The fact of the matter is that today conceiving, even with fertility issues, is much simpler than ever before. Today, men and woman have access to storage facilities that can secure their reproductive specimen for future use. The process of collecting this specimen can start at an even pre-embryonic stage, as oocytes are used for impregnation. Remarkably, shipping oocytes internationally is a real and truly revolutionary option.
