    If there is a medical method to stop women from releasing eggs till they are ready to have baby...

    People today are aging much slower, the biological age of a woman late 30 to early 40s today, still is equal to a 30 years old, the previous generation, people in their 20s and 30s, still have the biological age, of an 18 years old.  Women are also getting married at older age. Despite still fit to have children at older age, women still only have 500 eggs, so, if there is a new drug that prevent women from releasing eggs, if they are not planning to get pregnant...

    Out of curiosity, where did you pull the number 500? In actuality, most women hold close to one or two MILLION eggs in her ovaries...

    Also, what do you think birth control actually does? In most cases, birth control pills and injections like Depo Provera prevent the release of the egg into the uterus. So, uh, we already have a drug for this.

    Birth control pills do this already, but that doesn't solve the problem you're describing. The problem is not that older women don't have enough eggs, but that they become less viable as they get older. Even if they're not released, they still age at the same rate. The only way to prevent this is to harvest the eggs and freeze them when the woman is young, for implanting when she's older.

    Peter...please make sure your research is correct before making statements re: numbers.

    However, it cannot be solved just by not releasing the eggs - the eggs a woman carries in her ovaries are there when she is born - therefore they age at the same rate as she does. So, the longer she waits for a family, the more risk there is of damaged eggs.

    The only solution I could think of is women could freeze their eggs as young women in their 20s, and then have IVF type treatment in their later 30s if they want children. BUT egg harvesting is NOT pleasant and involves many drugs, and a transvaginal ultrasound with a large needle attached (I looked into egg donation...will do it after next child...but the pics are a bit off putting!).

    If you weren't worried about the age related issue with eggs - BIrth Control already does this....which would have been obvious had you even googled your question. Maybe one has to be a woman to know these things..
