Interesting.  I remember hearing about this article a few months ago, though I don’t think I read it then.  It’s totally crazy that the articles that are cited all the time are from hundreds of years ago!  

Also definitely reassuring to see some other data.  I am 31 and will be 32 when we are TTC… with our first, and we want at least two.  I’ll probably be at least 35 (if not older) when we are TTC #2.

I actually mentioned something similar to this on the Daily Mail article thread. Basically, in my opinion, these fertility studies are flawed. You have inconclusive subjects (i.e. you don’t know if the woman having issues TTC in her 30s would have had a hard time in her 20s bc she wasn’t even TRYING then). Like another poster said, unless you are following these women around during their 20s and 30, you just don’t know the full story.
