More media coverage that doesn’t get it! What’s up with Self Magazine?

February 10, 2011 | By: | Filed under: Age and Infertility, Check This Out, Current Affairs, I'm Just Another Angry Infertile Woman, In the News, Thinking Out Loud

There is an article in a recent issue of Self magazine that addresses fertility and fertility preservation from a What You Need to Know at What Age perspective.  It really pissed me off.  The statistics were wrong, and the entire article seemed to ignore the fact that infertility is a serious illness affecting millions of Americans.  Among the many things that irritated me was a statistic that made it sound like its really easy to get pregnant after 40.  The only thing that they got right in my opinion was to point out that your risk of miscarriage increases to 50% per pregnancy over the age of 40.  Anyway, RESOLVE was a bit irritated by the article too, as were many other industry professionals.  I don’t know if you saw it and what you thought but if you had a reaction similar to mine, you might want to Take The Pledge.  I am tired of people not knowing what their risks are and not being educated so that if they choose to wait to parent until later in life they at least know that the NOvary™ may be waiting!
