NAGPUR: Having long focused only on the female partners while treating infertility, doctors are now also now taking into consideration other factors like male contribution and erratic lifestyle. Even as these changes are being introduced, infertility experts are finding that many couples are hesitant to accept them and several others have many misconceptions regarding the treatment.
While nearly half of infertility is due to male factors, more men remain reluctant to seek professional assistance.Dr. Trustin Domes, a Saskatoon reproductive urologist – the only one in the province – said societal stereotypes attached to masculinity and virility might have something to do with why men are suffering in silence.
There’s an old bell jar that sits on top of a cupboard at a Cambridgeshire fertility clinic where history was made; it was in a dish inside this jar that the world’s first IVF baby spent the hours after her conception. With the success of in vitro fertilisation (IVF), British scientist Robert
Back when my husband and I were shopping for strollers, we briefly considered buying a double so that we would be prepared for the two or three children we planned to have. We were in our late 20s and in good health. We had moved into a roomy home across from an elementary school. Everything seemed to be going as planned.
According to an article titled “Stem Cells, The Future is Here” in the January 2013 issue of New You magazine, dedicated physicians and scientists are making steady progress in the use of stem cells to combat the signs of aging. Some harvest stem cells from sheep and cows, others are obtaining stem cells directly from their patients during a minimally invasive liposuction.
In today’s fast-paced world of scientific breakthroughs and technologies, there have been many companies jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to anti-aging skin care. One of the most advanced technologies being used today are products formulated from adipose-derived stem cell growth factors.
Chicago: US researchers have found a way to coax human embryonic stem cells to turn into the types of cells…
AMERICAN scientists say they have found a way to produce human eggs from stem cells, raising hope of an advance in treating infertility in women.
The researchers say their discovery has swept away the belief women have a limited stock of eggs, and replaces it with the theory that supply is continuously replenished from precursor cells in ovaries.
Women may not have a finite number of eggs.Researchers have isolated stem cells from adult human ovaries that could produce eggs.The findings could change fertility treatments.
Contrary to the belief that women are born with a finite number of eggs, there may in fact be a way to replenish the supply, a new study suggests.Researchers have isolated stem cells from adult human ovaries that appear to be capable of producing eggs.ANALYSIS: Old Genes Making Hulking Ants
When a couple experiences infertility, the man is just as likely as the woman to be the cause. Male infertility may arise from failed proliferation and differentiation of the germ cells (precursors of sperm) or from dysfunction of the supporting cells. New research is looking to stem cells as a means of replacing nonfunctioning cells, whether germ cells or supporting cells.
