Chrissy Teigen Defends Choice To Have A Daughter Against Twitter Backlash

Chrissy Teigen is so ready for John Legend to become a dad to their baby girl.  The 30-year-old, who has been busy promoting her cookbook Cravings, told People magazine that she picked out the embryo when trying to get pregnant using in vitro fertilization.   “I think I was most excited and allured by the fact that John would be the best father to a little girl.

We’ll get there too, so it’s not like we really have to pick.” This is the first child for Teigen and Legend, who met in 2007 and married in 2013. The two dealt with fertility struggles and Teigen has been vocal about being respectful of women by not asking an invasive question like "When are the kids coming?"  But after opening up about her choice, she received some backlash on Twitter.  What year is this!? And for the record, I am always happy and open to speak on infertility. The more casual, the better! I don't mind.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 24, 2016 I also picked the embryo with a taste for bacon, a knack for magic and size 7 feet so she can always find shoes— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 24, 2016 what is that difference though? i've already created embryos with a doctor. only after must it be ...

Authors: Palomba S, Falbo A, Daolio J, Battaglia FA, LA Sala GB Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common female disorder with a pathogenesis still today not completely known. To the present, PCOS is considered more than just a reproductive disorder since several metabolic consequences that could affect women's health during different stages of reproductive and post-reproductive life were reported. The aim of the current review was to evaluate present evidence-based data regarding the pregnancy complications in infertile patients with PCOS. An extensive literature search until February 2018 was performe...

ConclusionsThe outcomes of IVF after neosalpingostomy were matchable with salpingectomy. For patients desire to preserve fallopian tubes, we recommend laparoscopic neosalpingostomy as an alternative choice to manage moderate hydrosalpinx before IVF.

AbstractPurposeRatio of fetal weight to placenta size varies by mode of conception (fertility treatments utilized) in animals. Our objective was to assess whether fertility treatments also affect these ratios in humans.MethodsIn this retrospective study, we assessed two cohorts: (a) early gestation cohort, women with singleton pregnancies who underwent first trimester vaginal ultrasound and (b) delivered cohort, women who delivered a live-born, singleton infant with placenta disposition to pathology. Crown rump length (CRL) and estimated placental volume (EPV) were calculated from first trimester ultrasound images using a ...

Nurkiewicz Preconceptive health encompasses male and female reproductive capability. In females, this takes into account each of the stages of the estrous cycle. Microvascular reactivity varies throughout the estrous cycle in response to hormonal changes and in preparation for pregnancy. Microvascular alterations in response to engineered nanomaterial (ENM) exposure have been described within 24-h of inhalation; however, the impact upon the uterine vasculature at differing estrous stage...

CONCLUSION: Our results show that Epstein-Barr infection is possibly associated with autoimmune ovarian failure. The devastating impact on fertility in such disorder can be successfully avoided by in vitro maturation of oocytes from excised ovarian tissue. PMID: 29618356 [PubMed - in process]

We examined relationships between maternal age (modeled flexibly to allow curvilinear shapes) and pregnancy outcomes using logistic regression. We plotted absolute predicted risks to display curves from age 20 to 50 estimated for two risk profiles: (1) population average values of all risk factors; (2) a low-risk profile without preexisting diabetes/hypertension, smoking, prior spontaneous/therapeutic abortion, diagnosed infertility, inadequate prenatal care, low income, rural residence, or obesity. Results: Risks of hypertensive disorders increased gradually until age 35, then accelerated. Risk of multiple gestations, ...
