Every cell in our body is replaced every 7 years

Photo credit: pepoitanaI don't believe that our eggs are old. It just doesn't make logical sense. There was an article posted a while back about how every cell in our body is replaced every 7 years? Does it make sense that every other cell is replaced, except our eggs? That men's sperm cells are made daily, but our eggs are stagnant?

What I think they really mean is the basis for our eggs is there from the start, but they don't start to mature until 3 months before they are needed. So, in reality, they are only 3 months old.

What we need are healthy bodies, that haven't been exposed to a lot of chromosomal damage, and a good balance of hormones to support a pregnancy. Then I think that, as long as you are still cycling, still ovulating, and you have no other medical reasons to prevent a conception - you can get successfully pregnant - no matter how old you are.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies, by Randine Lewis. Publisher: Little, Brown and Company (March 21, 2005)-The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies
by Randine Lewis

-- Infertility affects one out of six couples today.

Dr. Lewis presents a groundbreaking alternative approach to infertility, explaining how she used traditional Chinese medicine to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children.

In Lewis's experience, women who have undergone three to six months of the dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture treatments become pregnant with no further effort.

Lewis intersperses her somewhat technical examination of the program with anecdotes about her patients, weaving in discussions on diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture, older women and problems related to infertility.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.

    This gave my 53 year old mom good hope! Thanks! Does taking good care of yourself also help prevent trisomies?
