Ovaries in a woman who gave birth once, pitted & scared

Found this on the SciForums, by DwayneD.L.Rabon. Interesting concept - not saying it's true, but perhaps there is some truth in his theory? Anyone want to argue for or against his theory?

As I said in my earlier post, women who retain
fertility in old age are women who carry out a life of reproduction.

For example each ovary is estimated to have about 250,000 ovums comprising a total of 500,000 ovums. If a woman gets pregant every 4 years, in 86 years the woman would have used 17 ovums to make children, and lost 48 ovums from the age 12 to 16 (seeing that she started rearing children at 16, the time of first pregancy).

A women that gave birth once in her life, would lose 876 ovums in 86 years (basically a loss of one ovum per month).

Ovaries in a woman that gave only one birth would be pitted and scared from all of the releases of ovums. The woman that got pregant every 4 years would have not pitting or scaring to the ovum, leaving the ovaries as a viable tissue, she could actually release a ovum from the ovaries.

The woman that had only one child would be unable to release a ovum from the ovaries, and the surface tissue of the ovaries would be scared - blocking or hindering the timely release of a ovum. It would require a large amount of chemical hormone to bring about a reaction, as the tissues of the ovaries is hardened.

This is not the case for a female that has given birth regularly, because her ovaries are viable tissue, without scaring, and therfore respond to a reasonable chemical hormone signal. (She needs to eat well)

The areas of the endocrine system that alternate month to month to form a cycle of ovulation and menstration are used less, and so the cells remain viable to the secretion of hormones, at any time they may become active -even in old age and duplicate. Bringing about the normal proccess of ovulation.

The woman that gave only one birth in her lifetime, puts a heavy tax of usage to maintain function and month to month fertility that is in vain of her biology. Her cells must constantly replace the dying cells of the endoctrine system, by duplicating, creating all the problems of cell aging (See Telmars in cell duplication).

Menopause is basically a chemical imbalance. Occuring as female body reduces or improperly alternates chemical secretion as a result of aging and dying cells.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
