Women should get pregnant right after graduating and before 25, says expert
What fresh hell is this
In a bleak new twist on the post-university quarter life crisis, fertility experts have now decided that, in addition to finding a grad job and having a life, women should be pregnant before 25 to avoid a “ticking fertility time bomb”.
Presumably heartless Dr Gillian Lockwood, the medical director at the Midland Fertility Clinic, said the peak age to fall pregnant was at 25 when you’re most fertile.
“Age 25 is exactly the time when today’s young women have left university, are trying to get off on a good career, trying to pay back their student loans, trying to find someone who wants to have babies with them and trying to get on the housing ladder.”
Not content with the idea that women in their twenties should be fecund sirens trying to lure men to bless their wombs, Lockwood went on: “The problem we have here is that, past 25, women on the outside are shiny, young and youthful and on the inside their ovaries know exactly what it says on their birth certificate.
“As I always tell my patients – you cannot Botox your ovaries.”
So that’s great news.
