6 Signs You Should Talk To A Doctor About Fertility

Andrea Syrtash was first hospitalized at the age of 14 for painful and heavy menstrual cycles due to endometriosis. She had no idea her condition would affect her fertility ― and even if she had known, she may not have thought to address it without guidance from her doctors. After six years of trying to conceive, Syrtash, who’s now in her 40s and works as a relationship and dating expert, recently founded pregnantish, a website for singles, couples and LGBTQ people who are trying to conceive.  “When you’re a teenager, it’s not on your mind,” she said. Had she known, “I might have seen a specialist sooner.” Syrtash’s experience reveals a truth fertility specialists want more people to know: You don’t have to be actively trying to get pregnant in order to think about your fertility. Most women and men don’t learn they have fertility problems until they’re trying to conceive ― but in many cases, the clues were there long before. However, there’s a lot you can do to take care of your fertility, experts say. The trick is to start thinking about it early. “Our biological window is narrow ― about 10 years if you’re not going to get pregnant in college or immediately after,” says Dr. Janelle Luk of Neway Fertility, a Manhattan fertility center. “So if the window is narrow, and you don’t know any of this ― that you have fibroids or heavy bleeding ...

Publication date: Available online 21 April 2019Source: Neurochemistry InternationalAuthor(s): Xiongxiong Zhong, Wei Wang, Zuchao Mao, Feng Gao, Ruixian Guo, Xuxia Wei, Xianguo Liu, Xuhong WeiAbstractIt has been reported that skin/muscle incision and retraction (SMIR) in the thigh, produces mechanical allodynia in the hind paw, far from the site of incision/retraction. The mechanical allodynia lasts about 22 days, indicating chronic post-operative pain develops. The precise mechanisms, however, are largely unclear. In the current study, we further found that SMIR surgery induced LTP of c-fiber evoked field potentials that ...

Abstract Pancreatic β-cells undergo profound hyperplasia during pregnancy to maintain maternal euglycemia. Failure to reprogram β-cells into a more replicative state has been found to underlie susceptibility to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). We recently identified a requirement for prolactin receptor (PRLR) signaling in the metabolic adaptations to pregnancy, where β-cell-specific PRLR knockout (βPRLRKO) mice exhibit a metabolic phenotype consistent with GDM. However, the underlying transcriptional program that is responsible for the PRLR-dependent metabolic adaptations during gestation r...

CooperAbstractPancreatic islet-derived peptide hormones play key roles in the maintenance of systemic energy homeostasis and glucose balance, and defects in their regulation are strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity and diabetes. Peptides have also been used as lead compounds for therapeutics targeting metabolic disease. It is therefore important to understand the activity and function of islet hormones in both their target tissues and t...
