Understanding the effects of age on female fertility
Ruman J., Klein J., Sauer M. V.
This review focuses on age-related changes occurring in the female reproductive system and their effect on reproductive material. Aging significantly impact the female reproductive system but, despite this fact, there is nowadays a trend to postpone pregnancy to pursue educational and vocational goals. Therefore a remarkable effort is now being made by the medical establishment to understand the effects of aging in women. The assessment and treatment of this decline in fertility is discussed, as well as assisted reproductive techniques and new therapeutic options.
