Aging: The "why' questions in medicine are often unanswerable. The situation just is. In the case of female fertility, the ovaries and the eggs a female was born with begin to age and by aging they are less likely to work or provide the necessary support should implantation or pregnancy occur. A female does not produce new eggs. She has all of her eggs when she is born. ...Read more
I left my birth control in car over night in 30F degree weather. Will the cold 30 degree weather make birth control less effective?
Still effective...: A night in the car at 30 degrees won't make your birth-controll pills less effective. Most pill makers state that the pill needs to be kept between 68 & 77 degrees. They won't "guarantee" a pill's integrity outside this range. In reality its heat that will denature a pill rather than short exposure to cold such as you described. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When should I stop birth control to get pregnant? I'm (trying) to schedule conception within a certain window of time.

Many people take pills to regulate their cycles in addition to contraception. Stop the pills, wait a month to see if you get a spontaneous period, then start trying after that period. If you don't get periods or are not regular, see your doctor. ...Read more

What is the name of the eye drops doctors use when you're having surgery so your eyes won't dry out?
Risky behavior: My wife's pregnancy with our son was textbook perfect until her water broke (in the hospital). Then our son's fetal heart rate plummeted. He was born by emergency c section 5 minutes later and is now a cute, active and bright 4 year old. If we had been at home the delay would have resulted in severe brain damage. This could not have been predicted or prevented, which is why we have hospitals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
