Delaying pregnancy is a common choice for women today with at least 20% of women waiting until after the age of 35 to begin their families. For some women the decision about whether to have a first or subsequent child is taken from them by 'happy accidents', or perhaps because they cannot conceive.
Although an increasing number of women now choose to postpone having children until their early 30s and many are successful, others will find it increasingly difficult to conceive even with assisted reproduction techniques like IVF. The development of the Body Clock Test and its widespread availability through the UK Body Clock Network allows women to take control and make informed decisions about their reproductive lifestyle choices.
