High BPA Levels Can Hurt IVF

A study found that BPA can reduce fertility and also negatively affect IVF: 

In the study, doctors collected 24 percent fewer eggs from women with high levels of BPA in their bodies, compared with women who had low levels of the industrial chemical.

Women with high BPA levels also had fewer eggs that were successfully fertilized.

Has anyone had their BPA levels checked?  Do you try to avoid products that contain BPA?
