Fertility and Type O BloodI don't think anyone has ever made the connection between blood type and fertility, but apparently if you're a type "O", you may be at higher risk for high FSH and fertility problems.

Having trouble conceiving? Your blood type may be to blame, according to a new study from researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and reported by the UK’s Telegraph.
The study results, which were presented yesterday at the annual conference of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, found that women with type O blood -- the most common blood type in the U.S. -- who were seeking fertility help were more likely to have trouble getting pregnant than women with other blood types.
The study involved 560 women (average age: about 35) who were being treated for infertility and measured their follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels. The type O gals were twice as likely to have FSH levels that were above normal, meaning they’ve got fewer good eggs.
