The Celeb Impact on Fertility
In your early 20s, doctors say most couples have a 1 in 12 chance of infertility. Between 25 - 35, 1 in 8, and in your late 30s or 40s, 1 in 4. But that reality can be overshadowed by high profile pregnancies: celebrities who may, inadvertently, lead other women to believe it's easy to get pregnant later in life. "I think they have to recognize that they're not seeing the whole story, that people have a right to keep their personal business private and they need to go and ask questions. They can't assume anything about their fertility," says Reproductive Endocrinology Associates of Charlotte (REACH) Dr. Nancy Teaff.
