      MSNBC,  July 11, 2011

      A woman's blood type may yield clues to her fertility, a new study suggests. The results show that, of a group of women in their 30s who sought medical fertility help, those with blood type O were more likely than women with other blood types to have diminished ovarian reserve, meaning their ovaries had few eggs or had eggs unlikely to meet with success during in vitro fertilization procedures. Type O blood is the most common type in the United States.

But new research suggests it may actually work the other way around: having more children hamstrings women's education. The research, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), investigated the obvious question about education and fertility: do more educated women have fewer kids because they're educated or because having children prevented them from going on to get more education?

      Women who want the best chance of having a baby should make sure they floss their teeth regularly, say fertility doctors at a meeting in Stockholm. Poor oral health is as bad for fertility as obesity — delaying conception by about two months. Women with gum disease took over seven months to conceive, compared to the usual five months.
