Things in Your House May Reduce Fertility

Things in Your House May Reduce FertilityYou may not realize it, but there could be something in your home that lessens your ability to have kids. That's according to a new UC Berkeley study released in Environmental Health Perspectives.

The study finds that women who are exposed to higher levels of a chemical found in some flame retardants are less likely to conceive. That chemical can most commonly be found in some furniture and fabrics. As they break down, you can find it in dust as well. It can even be found in some nail polish removers.

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.
