Here's Why The Whole "Biological Clock" Thing Is Bullcrap

Any fertile woman who hasn't given birth yet is bound to have been asked about their "biological clock" and when they're going to reproduce. But new research reveals that even though women are delaying marriage and children, infertility rates have actually not increased in the last 30 years.
The study conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics analyzed data from the National Survey on Family Growth and interviewed 22,000 people between 2006 - 2010. This data was then compared to the same survey given to people in 2002 and 1982.
The surveys showed that 8.5 percent of married women aged 15 to 44 were infertile (defined as having been married and having unprotected sex for 12 months without becoming pregnant) in 1982. This fell to 6 percent of the same age group, married or unmarried, in 2006-2010. According to Dr. Richard Reindollar of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine:
Even though the ages at which women in the United States have their children have been increasing since 1995, the percentage of the population suffering from infertility or impaired fecundity has not increased.
So if anything, this whole fertility crisis is nothing more than a myth to get ladies stressed out over nothing. If you do end up having a baby, here's hoping that it is your decision and not just because you want to "catch up."
