The study in the Jan 26, 2010 in the Journal Environmental Health Perspectives showed each 10-fold increase in four types of polybrominated diphenyl ethers or PBDEs was associated with a 30 percent decrease in the likelihood of becoming pregnant each month.

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.
