Western Civilization is undergoing an unprecedented birthrate crisis, and a fertility expert believes that this is happening in part because women are holding out for a “fairy tale” outcome that will likely never happen.
“It is a myth that women leave it later to have a child until they have climbed the career ladder, with studies showing it is much more likely to be because they have not met Mr. Right,” said gynecologist Dr. Meenakshi Choudhary of the Newcastle Fertility Center.
Choudhary is studying women’s eggs and their quality throughout the aging process as apart of her research into fertility. She believes that women need to lower their expectations and settle down if they want to have kids.
“I would advise women not to wait for Mr. Right but to go for Mr. Good Enough if they want to have children,” she said.
