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. That excited me,” she said. “It excited me to see … just the thought of seeing him with a little girl. I think he deserves a little girl. I think he deserves that bond. A boy will come along. 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 ...
ConclusionsAge of the mother, outcome of the first pregnancy, and treatment factors affect the length of the interpregnancy interval. Because short IPI has been associated with poor outcomes, women who are at risk for short IPI should be counseled about these outcome risks.
CONCLUSION: Despite a more frequent presentation with advanced disease, colorectal cancer has a similar prognosis in pregnancy when compared with the general population. Diagnostic interventions and treatment should not be delayed due to the pregnancy but a balance between maternal and foetal wellbeing must always be kept in mind.

[Nairobi News] Two in every 10 couples suffer from infertility, data has shown.
Conclusions: We found no associations of bisphenols and phthalates with fecundability. Preconception folic acid supplementation seems to modify effects of bisphenols and phthalates on fecundability. Folic acid supplements may protect against reduced fecundability among women exposed to these chemicals. Further studies are needed to replicate these findings and investigate potential mechanisms.

CONCLUSION: Trends favoring twice daily dosing are encouraging findings and require further investigation. PMID: 29999292 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Expression of gap junction protein correlates with quantity of oocytes retrieved and might be related to pregnancy outcome. This study suggests that lack of connexin43 expression may contribute to poor ovarian response. PMID: 29999282 [PubMed - in process]
Uterine myomas are common benign monoclonal tumors with extremely low potential for malignancy. They are estimated to be present in up to 70% of women of reproductive age , with a higher incidence in obese women and those of African American descent, and when symptomatic, a frequent indication for gynecologic surgery. Although the presence of myomas may be associated with a plethora of symptoms including pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility/subfertility, and adverse pregnancy outcomes , the vast majority of women with uterine fibroids are asymptomatic.

We report a case of OEIS complex with the classical four major components in a 2-hour old term male baby, delivered by cesarean section to a 37-year-old lady with history of primary infertility and had the pregnancy with the aid of In Vito Fertilization. The baby was one of a set of twins. The other baby was alive and normal. We document the presence of a vesico-enteric fistula between the urinary bladder and the terminal ileum, which is to our best knowledge, a unique association that is not reported in the reviewed studies. We present the immediate neonatal care and surgical intervention that has been done for this newborn.
