Why using fresh donor eggs is dangerous

Why do we continue using fresh donor eggs when doing donor egg IVF treatment ?It's now standard practice all over the world to use only frozen sperm for donor insemination, because we know that fresh sperm carries the hazards of HIV transmission.Now, this is true for donor eggs as well, yet we continue to use fresh eggs from fresh donors. However this is completely unacceptable, especially when the technology for freezing eggs has become so mature. When eggs are vitrified, the survival rate is 100% in a good clinic with an experienced embryologist, who has the required expertise.Just like we quarantine frozen sperm samples, we should make sure that the only eggs which are used for donor egg IVF are frozen eggs , to prevent the inadvertent transmission of HIV/AIDS through IVF.Not only are frozen eggs far safer, the pregnancy rate with them is higher. It's much more reliable to use frozen eggs, because we know how many there are , and we can guarantee that we will be able to use at last 10 mature eggs for the recipient.It's also much easier to match the physical traits of the egg donor and the recipient when we use frozen eggs, because we don't have to worry about synchronising their cycles.Want more information ?  You can send me your medical details by filling in the form atwww.drmalpani.com/free-second-opinion so that I can guide you !

Adolescents and young adults, particularly young women in low- and middle-income countries, face numerous and well-documented threats to their sexual and reproductive health, including adolescent pregnancy and childbearing, much of it unintended; complications from unsafe abortions; HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections; and child marriage [1 –3]. To address these challenges, governments and nongovernmental organizations have attempted a range of intervention strategies, such as comprehensive sexuality education in schools [4], youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services [5], and cash transfers [6,7].

Background: HIV-exposed-uninfected (HEU) infants have increased infectious morbidity and mortality; little is known about their levels of inflammation and monocyte activation. Methods: Plasma samples obtained at birth and 6 months from 86 HEU mother–infant pairs enrolled in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development cohorts in Brazil were compared with 88 HIV-unexposed mother–infant pairs. HIV-infected mothers received antiretroviral therapy during pregnancy, their infants received zidovudine prophylaxis and were not breastfed. IL-6, soluble TNFα receptor I (sTNF-RI) and II, soluble...

AbstractGreater male partner involvement in Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) and Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) is associated with improved outcomes. Perceived low social support for the mother can negatively impact the uptake of PMTCT/EID services. Most research relies on women ’s reports of the types and quality of male partner support received versus what is desired. This qualitative study examines Kenyan male partners' reported social support provision pre- and post-partum from their own perspective. The study was embedded within intervention development studies in K enya designed to develop ...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite a low reported completion, VL testing completion was high. Reported suppression using captured data was similar to suppression calculated using all laboratory data, which provided an accurate measure of progress towards the 90-90-90 target. More work is needed to reach the 16% of patients missed by routine testing. PMID: 30834874 [PubMed - in process]

This study suggests that the densification of the fetal LV myocardium occurs gradually from base to apex and from the anterior to lateral, posterior, and inferior walls. This finding aids in further understanding the process of myocardial densification and provides a diagnostic reference for noncompaction of noncompaction cardiomyopathy (NCCM).
