Can women pause their biological clocks

The quality of a woman's eggs decreases as the woman gets older. Older female eggs are more likely to produce a child with birth defects, and older eggs have a higher miscarriage rate than younger eggs. Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) researchers have studied worm genes.

Through genetic tests run on worms, the researchers might have found a way to delay human female eggs from aging. This breakthrough might allow females to maintain quality eggs into their 30s and 40s. See the article for full details.
