Biological Clock App
(FOX NEWS) – Ladies, is your biological clock ticking? Fox’s Elisa Amigo says there’s an app for that!
MOS says: “I’m not even thinking about having kids yet.”
Motherhood may not be for everyone, but for those who are considering childbirth.
MOS says: “I’m curious and I’m in my early 40′s.”
Now, there’s a new app called the “wonder clock” that counts you down to the second, letting you know *when* you’re going to become infertile.
MOS says: “If I was younger, I would do that for sure.”
MOS says: “I think it’s silly, I won’t try it.”
MOS says: “They have an app for everything now, I guess.”
The app costs $1.99, all you have to do is enter your date of birth, seconds later, your fertility is set to a virtual timer.
SNYDER says: “Fertility has many factors involved, not just age. Your health, genetics, all things you should talk to your doctor about.”
Cleveland Clinic Dr. Jennifer Snyder says if you’re *even thinking* about downloading the app, it may be a good time to talk with your doctor.
SNYDER says: “Some women have healthy pregnancies into their late 40′s or approaching 50 and some women in their early 20′s are already unaware that they’re infertile or they’re going to have fertility issues.”
The website states this is “not meant to be a medical diagnosis” rather “an interactive, conceptual piece” aimed at sparking a dialogue about fertility.
SNYDER says: “People used to have babies younger, but now women are focusing on school and career and other things in their lives before they start thinking about having children but I don’t think it’s ever too early to start thinking about it.”
Amigo says “life is full of uncertainties, fertility formula is full of variables according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the oldest mother to give birth was a 66 year old woman from Spain.”
MOS says: “My one older sister had a daughter at 45.”
If this virtual timer is an indicator, time is ticking, only you will know when the biological clock runs out.
