Afraid Your Biological Clock’s Running Out? There’s an App for That!
Are you a woman worried that your fertility is about to end? Worried that you don’t know when it’s going to end? Now you can carry the answer on your smart phone.
Welcome to The Wonder Clock, an app that, once you program in your date of birth, can reportedly predict the end of your fertile years. Its inventor, Mira Kaddoura, says it’s not so much a device to keep women aware of how much longer they can be baby mammas as to open a dialogue about whether or not to have children (a conversation one presumes would also involve potential baby daddies).
Of course, it’s impossible to guarantee when a woman’s fertility cycle will end. But the app can get a woman thinking — worrying? obsessing? panicking? — about how much longer she can have children. I don’t know if it’s helpful or not. It may put more pressure on a situation that can be pretty stressful under normal circumstances.
This is a subject that I honestly have no opinion on. But you may. If you do, please share, here or at our Facebook page.
