For the first time in history, more babies in the US are being born to women above the age of 30 when compared to their twenty-something counterparts. While men continue to produce sperms throughout their lives, women are born with a fixed set of eggs. A girl child has about one million follicles (egg sacs) at birth, but by puberty, they drop down to about 300,000. Out of these, only 300 to 400 get ovulated during a woman's reproductive lifetime.
So how did we stop this clock from ticking?
