Keep Popping The Pills!

According to Sky News; Women over 35 are being warned to hold on to their contraception because the message on infertility and age has gone “too far”…

Apparently the boffins at The FPA, think women of ‘a certain age’  are still prone to pregnancy and, data for England and Wales shows abortion rates among women aged 40 to 44 are the same as for under-16s? I can only think this data must have been collected from single girls?

After all… Ask many husbands and they would probably say; my wife doesn’t do sex so how could she get frickin pregnant in the first place? 🙂

The figures from the Office for National Statistics reveal women between 30 and 34 continuing to have the highest fertility rate, at 113.1 per 1,000 women. But the rate among women aged 40 and over has more than doubled since 1988, from 5.1 to 12.6 per 1,000 women, with more than 26,000 live births to women in this age group in 2008.
