TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
What Every Woman Should Know About Fertility and Her Biological ClockWhat Every Woman Should Know About Fertility and Her Biological Clock
-- Until now, there has been little practical advice on what women can do about ticking biological clocks.

What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock
is the first book to explore a woman's reproductive life span completely, from beginning to end.

Based on Cara Birrittieri's own experience of running up against a slowing biological clock, she shows women for the first time how to "tell what time it is" with a simple blood test that gives them a peek at the state of their ovaries.

What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock will:

• Show women how ovarian reserve tests can monitor the biological clock.
• Give women an evolutionary explanation for such an unforgiving clock.
• Offer a method to calculate the duration of the biological clock.
• Explain how birth control pills may enhance fertility.
• Provide a way to manipulate the monthly cycle using birth control pills.
• Present steps to preserve and prolong fertility.
• Provide a critical look at midlife celebrity birth announcements in the media.

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.
