This is a little weird to say, but I’ve come across an app that makes tracking your period kind of, um, fun! It’s called Clue, and I’m convinced its pretty layout is what makes it so addictive.

Well, rich moms… More »
Women are born with a finite number of eggs in their ovaries, but a new study is offering a peek into the possibility that we can change that. Here’s the (very brief) debrief: researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital extracted stem cells from the ovaries of donors who were undergoing sex change operations and implanted them… More »
According to a recent study by the Guttmacher Institute, young women underestimate their ability to get pregnant, while women in their 30s and 40s overestimate, and continue to wait. Whichever side of the fertility divide you fall on, there way too many myths floating around that have nothing to do with age. Here are 10… More »
When I was fresh out of college, I worked at an egg donation agency, which paired egg “donors” with potential parents willing to shell out a lot of money for the possibility of having children. At parties, when I was asked what I did for a living, it was inevitable that a group of girls… More »
Maria Menounos wants to be a mama. Just not for a while. So yesterday in an interview on “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers,” she said, “I am going to freeze my eggs … I’m 33, and I decided that I know I have a couple of years of work I want to get to, and then do… More »
It’s a freaky enough thought that cellphone radiation could cause cancer—something we’ve been hearing whispers about for years.

It was like the post-WWII baby boom at my publishing company in Manhattan. The ladies’ room was full of women patting their stomachs, complaining about morning sickness that lasted all day and chugging Cheerios to battle nausea. I had never seen anything like it at any place I’ve ever worked. At my last job, many… More »
When it comes to baby-craving, I am a complete lady cliché. I remark that my own ovaries are rotting between bites of huevos rancheros at brunch. I joke about having a back-up plan that involves “accidentally” getting knocked up by someone handsome, successful, and smart. Just this morning, I got an email from a pregnant… More »
