Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which is estimated to affect over 5 million American women, is the most common cause of female infertility and accounts for nearly “70% of fertility issues in women who have difficulty ovulating” (according to the PCOS Foundation).

Our Connecticut fertility centers offer comprehensive treatment for recurrent miscarriages.

A recent article by the Daily Mail suggested that if a woman wants to have three children she should begin at the age of 23. Other sources suggest that waiting until you’re older provides a better, more stable situation to raise children. While it’s true that women and men are working against their own biological clock, the dates of when it’s appropriate to have children aren’t cut and dry. For many women, having children in their early twenties is not an option whether for monetary, relationship, health, or emotional reasons. When you decide to have a child is entirely up to you. That being said, there are factors to consider when deciding to delay or begin your family.
