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."
On the off chance that given the decision, we're almost certain nobody would pick to be in a long distance relationship. Without a doubt, non-appearance influences the heart to become fonder, yet we're calling bullsh*t on that one: being separated from the individual you adore is hard. What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more
Life is a precious gift, but it’s all too easy to take it for granted. We assume we’re going to wake up each morning, and may have grievances about our work, or our neighbors, or the weather. We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
