Your Biological Clock

Your biological clock is referring to time running out for a woman to biologically procreate. It is a very real phenomenon and more women are encountering it today as baby-making plans are often put on hold.

When we are talking about women, pregnancy, and fertility, we often hear about a woman’s biological clock. The biological clock is referring to time running out for a woman to have children. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Age and fertility

A woman’s fertility peaks in her early to mid twenties, and begins to decline after that. Every woman is born with a set number of eggs, and when they are gone, they’re gone. Between ages thirty five and forty, there is a very small chance that a woman will be able to get pregnant on her own and go on to carry a healthy baby to term. After age forty, there is a very slim chance of a woman getting pregnant on her own. If a woman gets pregnant on her own, the risks are higher that there is some probability of the baby being born with problems. When a woman realizes that her time to have children is running out, and she begins to feel the need to have a baby as soon as possible, that is often referred to as a woman’s “biological clock ticking”.

Tick, tock

A woman’s biological clock can be a powerful thing. When a woman knows that she is running out of time to have a child naturally, it can affect her mentally and emotionally very hard. Sometimes women almost become obsessed with having a baby before their “time runs out”. It can be very tough for a woman to know that she wants children someday, but may not be ready for them at the present time. There is a fine line that women have to balance between having children too early when they are not fully ready and waiting too long and not being able to have any more children.

Running out of time?

The best option for women who are having issues with their biological clock ticking should be to meet with their doctor and possibly a fertility doctor as well. Your doctor can tell you exactly what to expect. You can have simple blood tests done to determine how many eggs you have remaining, and if it is in fact time to “put up or shut up”. There are a few options for women who know that they want to be a mom, but perhaps not right now, including egg freezing, donor eggs, and other options. Your doctor will be able to help you figure out what exactly is right for you. If you need to get your biological clock under control, your first step should be to talk with your health care provider and get a reality check about what is really going on inside your body!
