To the Editor: Bachrach’s article1 “Missed conceptions” and the accompanying commentary by Chapman et al2 made compelling reading. The plea of these authors coincides with calls from the Fertility Society of Australia and the South Australian branch of the Australian Federation of Business and Professional Women for campaigns to better inform women about the biological limits of their fertility.
