Fertility tests 11th August 2009
Should women check their fertility at thirty?

Too many women are unaware how quickly their fertility declines with age according to a leading fertility expert, who is urging 30-year-old women to purchase a fertility MOT test to reveal their chances of bearing children.

Jenni talks to Gillian Lockwood, Medical Director of Midland Fertility Services and Vice Chair of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Ethics Committee.
