This woman is in no rush for babies, and is okay with the tick of her biological clock.
I’m smack in the middle of my 30s and recently married. For some childless women my age, this is tick-tick-tick time. However, while other women may be intimately in touch with their ovulation cycles, I’m in no hurry to have kids now, if ever. My old man and I have talked about it, but we’re both horrified by how much our lives would have to change—not to mention how big a pain in the ass kids are for, oh, say, 18 years.
A new fertility study explains why women are sex crazed after age 27.
Reaching our mid-30s can be fabulous. That's something we learned from watching our girls in Sex and The City. Except, when our birthday finally dawns on us and we start to look at our future and think about how quickly this age crept up on us and how quickly the next year will, too. What often crowds our minds at this age are our biological clocks. By 30 and continuing into our 40s, all we can hear is a faint, imaginary murmur from our anxious tubes: tick-tock, tick-tock. It's this "sound" that, according to new research from the University of Texas Austin, that drives us to "capitalize on our remaining childbearing years." In layman's terms, we have sex and lots of it.
Single women share certain preferences—but men hate some of the very things we love.
Although remarkably little ink in men's magazines is devoted to making over women or determining whether oft-cited flaws are terminal, guys have their own (mental) list of women's undateable traits. Men from around the country put these at the top.
One woman wonders if her sister's prince will ever come. Is Mr. Right out there?
You’re almost 35 now and want nothing more than a flesh-and-blood child of your own with a man you love—more than you wanted that master’s degree, that great job you have, that beautiful house you bought with your own money or that strong, athletic body you worked so hard to get back after he broke your heart the last time and ran off with someone else.
Five reasons men in their 20's may want children as much as women.
Twentysomething guys are often thought of to be party- and booty-obsessed overgrown babies, but a new study reveals that most of them actually covet fatherhood! Biological clocks, stability and good, old-fashioned love are some of the reasons motivating men to have kids.
When you hit thirty, your biological clock begins ticking, and loudly.
Ask almost any childless women in her 30s to name five things that have been on her mind lately, and there's a good chance she'll mention her biological clock. It may not be the first thing she names—her career, the economy, saving for a house, her parents' health, the health of her relationship, finishing her dissertation, fitting back into her skinny jeans, and finding someone to share her life with may be getting more of her attention; but for a vast majority of us, the idea of having kids is something we think about nearly as much, if not more, than almost everything else. After all, our biological clocks and the issues of when, whether, and how long we have left to procreate determine so many other variables in our life. And for those of us who wait until our 30s—a quickly growing number of us these days—it's a decision we face when the stakes are especially high.

Lance Armstrong reveals in a new book that his split with Sheryl Crow was due to her ticking clock.
There are a lot of reasons why Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow might have called it quits. His not-quite-ex-wife. Her touring schedule. Those garish, if not well-intended yellow rubber bracelets. The fact that she sang a duet with Kid Rock.
And yet, when the Grammy-award winning singer and seven-time Tour de France champion/cancer survivor finally threw in the towel — after two and a half years of working out, working the red carpet, and working for a cure — it was actually due to something far less glitzy and a lot more human: Crow's 43-year-old biological clock.
