A study of women at a fertility clinic found that those who failed to become pregnant after treatment had older mothers than those who were successful.
The researchers from Atlanta, advised that postponing childbirth had implications for future generations.
Dr Peter Nagy, a fertility specialist, warned that the decline in quality of a women’s eggs as she gets older could be passed on into the reproductive cells that eventually become her daughters eggs.
CORE hopes that women take heed of these warnings. The best age to have children is in the mid-twenties – this is true not not only for the women’s health, but also the future health of her children.
