How often have you heard women say, "I'm not getting any younger," in relation to her biological clock? While it's true that a woman's ability to conceive becomes more difficult with age, a new hormone test awaiting FDA approval gages fertility in a way that measures the health of a woman's eggs. The Wall Street Journal article focusing on these tests says "the delay in childbearing, fueled in part by the strides women have made in the workplace, has led to more fertility interventions as women age."
It also notes that doctors expect more women will undergo these tests during their childbearing years to get a "benchmark of their fertility." If you knew that you had a larger fertility window, would it affect the path you've chosen for your career?
