Dr Alice is joined by Rachel Macfarlane, a 24-year-old paralegal in Manchester, who would like to find out more about her body and her fertility. Rachel, like most women, is likely to be at her most fertile when young, but admits that she has no plans to have children anytime soon.
Using Dr Alice’s trademark dissections of animal parts, drawings and props, the female reproductive organs are explained. Dr Alice witnesses the birth of a baby girl, demonstrates the journey of a female egg once it leaves the ovary and examines some new scientific research which suggests that women advertise their most fertile times to men without even realising it.
In an episode about female reproductive health, with a focus on fertility, you would hope that a mention of something as common as PCOS would crop up!
