'Biological Clock' cannot be rewound

The Medical Press report that women cannot rewind the 'biological clock'.

Many women they say do not fully appreciate the consequences of delaying motherhood, and expect that assisted reproductive technologies can reverse their aged ovarian function, Yale researchers reported in a study published in a recent issue of Fertility and Sterility.
 According to the report,
"There is an alarming misconception about fertility among women," said Pasquale Patrizio, M.D., professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Yale School of Medicine and director of the Yale Fertility Center. "We also found a lack of knowledge about steps women can take early in their reproductive years to preserve the possibility of conception later in life."
The report stemmed from the observations Patrizio and colleagues made that more women are coming to the fertility clinic at age 43 or older expecting that pregnancy can be instantly achieved, and they're disappointed to learn that it can't be done easily. "We are really seeing more and more patients 'upset' after failing in having their own biological child after age 43 so we had to report on this," said Patrizio. "Their typical reaction is, 'what do you mean you cannot help me? I am healthy, I exercise, and I cannot have my own baby?' 

Once again when dealing with the subject of IVF and all other forms of ART (assisted reproductive technology) it more imperative than ever, now, to promote, encourage and recognise the natural alternative NaPro technology

NaPro technology, apart altogether from its moral and ethical base, has been shown to be far more successful than conventional, IVF, technologies. You can find more information about NaPro on and I have dealt with this issue in many previous blogs, see for example (1 March 2010; 18 February 2010; 28 June 2009; 29 May 2009) which give further information
