Dr. Oz Puts Latest Fertility Study in Perspective for Women

Last week, a fertility study's findings startled many someday mamas. It reported that only 12 percent of a woman's eggs are left at the age of 30 and three percent at 40. Today on The View, Dr. Oz gave his opinion, which may allow concerned ladies to relax. He said:

"Let's be clear on numbers here. You are born with about a million eggs. If you have 12 percent left at 30, it's a 120,000 eggs. I mean how many eggs do you need? You know, If you're going to try to compete with the Duggars, you might need 'em, but you can do anything you want to do even with three percent of your eggs. Without question, but it does become more difficult as you know and the eggs aren't as vibrant as they are when they are younger so why put it off?"

Do his words lessen your worry?
