When you 'come out' about infertility

I am one in eight. One in every eight couples struggles to conceive or to maintain a pregnancy. I did not realize the magnitude of that statistic, the amount of women I would meet who also are one in eight. I did not know the journey into heartbreak, heartache, sisterhood and loss that I would experience.

Introduction: Since 2000, the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR) has connected more than 15,500 donor offspring with half-siblings and their biological parents. Accordingly, they have been able to create and explore these new familial relationships and can also understand their ancestry and learn about their medical backgrounds. 56,000 gamete donors, offspring, and recipients in 105 countries have registered on the DSR, seeking to find those with whom they share genetic ties.

Introduction: Submucosal fibroids result in abnormal uterine bleeding and infertility leading to hysteroscopic resections. The data on whether submucous fibroids should be removed is conflicting. The Cochrane dated February 2015 suggests that there is not enough evidence to recommend routing hysteroscopic resection of submucous fibroids. The AAGL (American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) recommends the removal of submucous fibroids in infertility and in selected patients with abnormal uterine bleeding and recurrent pregnancy loss.

One of the problems with IVF treatment is that patients still don't understand what the process involves. Not only doctors love complexifying the process ( so they can charge more for it !), there are so many myths and misconceptions floating around - both online and in the real world, that they don't know whom to trust.Most of them assume that it's too complicated for them to understand, and are happy to leave everything upto their doctor. This is why they are very vulnerable, and it's easy for unscrupulous doctors to tale them for ride, by using tons of jargon - and using this as a pretext to charge more for ev...

Abstract Early Embryonic Arrest (EEA) is one of the major causes of female infertility. Genetic factors including specific genes and miRNAs may play pivotal roles on EEA. However, it is not well defined what genes and micro RNAs participate the pathophysiological alterations of EEA. In this work, we compared the Transcriptome -Seq and microRNA profiles from three pairs of villi (three EEA patients and three normal pregnancy, NP). We first confirmed the array data by qPCR with ten randomly selected differentially expressed genes and ten differentially expressed miRNAs in villi from 20 EEA and 20 NP controls. We nex...
