Feminism is a social, political, and cultural movement that seeks to challenge and dismantle patriarchal systems and structures that perpetuate gender inequality and discrimination. In these modern times, it is important to acknowledge and appreciate women’s progress in society because of feminism. But it is even more important to reflect on how these ambitions and goals have impacted their lives, especially their fertility, and motherhood. So, is feminism really causing fertility issues in women?
Modern Feminism & Fertility
Feminism was originally meant to empower women to pursue their goals and ambitions. Which included starting a family and embracing motherhood along with pursuing their career goals. However, the modern feminist movement often prioritizes women’s professional and financial success above everything else. This can create a false dichotomy between job and family, leading women to delay or postpone their natural instinct of motherhood and fertility in order to achieve professional success.
It is important to remember that feminism is about providing women with options and choices rather than limiting them to a specific path. Women should feel empowered to make choices that align with their values and goals. Whether that means pursuing a career, starting a family, or a balance between both.
The Stress That Comes With Modern Feminism
The pressure to fit into a male-dominated society can lead to stress and trauma for us women. Which in turn can have negative impacts on our reproductive health and our ability to start a family. When we feel the need to constantly compete and prove ourselves in a traditionally male-dominated society, it can lead to feelings of anxiety, insecurity, and self-doubt.
Chronic stress and trauma can lead to a variety of physical and emotional health problems, including infertility, menstrual irregularities, and hormonal imbalances. This can make it more difficult for you to conceive, and can even increase the risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
In addition to the physical effects of stress and trauma, there are also psychological and emotional impacts to consider. When we feel the need to constantly prove ourselves in a male-dominated society, it can be difficult to prioritize family and motherhood. This can lead to feelings of guilt, shame, and inadequacy, which can have a negative impact on our mental health and overall well-being.

Balancing Career & Family Goals
Modern feminism has brought many positive changes to society, mostly for women seeking independence and financial freedom. While financial freedom and independence are certainly important goals, the pressure to constantly succeed in these areas can lead to stress, anxiety, and a sense of never being able to do enough. This can be particularly challenging for us who also want to start a family and have children. As the demands of a high-pressure career can make it difficult to balance work and family life.
However, it is important to recognize the importance of balance. It is important for women to be aware of their fertile window, which is the time in their life when they are most capable of conceiving and giving birth. This window of fertility is limited and varies from woman to woman, with some women experiencing a decline in fertility as early as their mid-20s. Therefore, it is important for us to be mindful of our biological clock as we navigate our career and financial goals. By being more aware of our fertility, we can make more informed decisions about family planning and take steps to utilize our fertile window, and embrace motherhood if necessary.
Moreover, we should not feel the need to emulate men to achieve success. We have our own set of strengths, skills, and qualities that are valuable in all areas of society. Whether it’s in the workplace, the home, or in leadership positions. We are complete and whole in our own right and should be encouraged to embrace our femininity and the unique gifts that come with it.
This means embracing qualities like empathy, compassion, intuition, and ultimately motherhood and raising a family which are just as important. It also means governments and societies creating a supportive environment for women who choose to start a family while recognizing the importance of motherhood and the unique contributions that women make in this role.
It is also important for us to prioritize our own health and well-being, both physically and emotionally. Especially, in the fast-paced world of today where we are constantly busy with work or social media. This means taking steps to reduce stress and trauma, such as practicing journaling, mindfulness, or self-healing techniques like Womb Healing and prioritizing self-care.
