    It will sharply decrease after 35. Do you worry about never becoming a mother?

    A female ferility expert suffered the wrath of feminists a couple of years ago for putting out an article about how the chances of getting pregnant naturally start to fall off the edge of a cliff after the mid30s, onwards, advising women to have their children as early as practicable.
    She made the mistake of thinking she should lay the facts before them so that they could make their own informed decision.

    It is a dilema. Women are under pressure to put it off, build a career, enjoy their freedom etc and 'have it all'. It's the same for every country in the west. Also of course a couple off generations on people having kids in their late 30s and the grandparents aren't going to be around for much of their lives in any appreciable way while growing up.

    If you aren't a mother by 35 you should just give up anyway.

    No as I plan on having kids when my fertility is still relatively high, for many reasons but especially as relatives struggle to have kids after mid 30s.

    No, I'm not concerned in the slightest as I don't want children.

    No, having children isn't something I'm particularly bothered about. At the moment I don't plan on having any

    NO, what I meant was women in my family, not just my mother and grandmother, tend to retain fertility into their 40's +

    I don't worry about fertitility specifically, but I do worry about not having come across the opportunity to settle down by the time I reach thirty and beyond, which would infer worrying about fertility to a certain extent, I suppose. :holmes:
