"For the average woman who is not on any kind of birth control, [the] process of fertilization is occurring over and over and over again and those women are not getting pregnant over and over and over again because many of those fertilizations never, ever implant."
"There are all these things that have to happen for pregnancy to occur. I think if people think about the question of when a woman is pregnant, the answer seems pretty intuitive. When I go to somebody and ask, How many times have you been pregnant? I’m not asking, How many times have you had fertilized eggs? These things are not the same. That isn’t a pregnancy, it’s just not there yet." ¹
