Army chiefs have launched a probe into whether tough military training is leaving thousands of female soldiers infertile.
They fear gruelling drills could be damaging the reproductive systems of young recruits, after evidence from the sports world showed one in four young female athletes struggles to conceive due to tough training schedules.
Now concerns are rife among leading medical experts in the British Armed Forces that many of the 16,000 serving women soldiers could also be affected.
Women who do gruelling training regimes tend to stop menstruating as their body fat drops.
And, umm, isn’t this what we actually want? People who are front line troops don’t take 2 years off now and again?
