11 myths fertility docs hear all the time

Apr 04, 2015 | Fertility Care
Great blog article about the 11 myths fertility docs hear all the time. I would just add: 1. My uterus is tilted so I must be infertile. Nope! Not true. The tilt of your uterus won't affect your pregnancy chances. 2. I took birth control for a really long time so I have to wait a long time for it to come out of my system. Nope! Not true. Birth control pills are out of your system immediately. If you stopped pills and are having  a hard time conceiving, find out why. 3. After sex, everything falls out. There must be something wrong with me. Nope! Not true. Sperm cells swim fast and it takes them 2 minutes to get to your fallopian tubes after intercourse. What you see coming out is supposed to do just that. It's called gravity. Semen isn't supposed to travel above the cervix. Hope this helps!

Omega-3 Fish Oil and Your Pregnancy

Apr 02, 2015 | Fertility Care
I recently read the NY Times blog article on fish oil titled Fish oil Claims Not Supported by Research. We often go online to get our health information but this is one  case where they didn't get the whole story right. I hope women don't skim the title and think that  fish oil does not have benefits in pregnancy. The author didn't address the research on fish oil with regard to the many studied benefits in pregnancy and during breastfeeding. Here's a short list of benefits that have been studied: - supports heart, immune system and inflammatory response - supports brain, eyes and central nervous system Click here to read more. I hope this helps!

The man, Mr. Gary Miller,  is hoping to give birth to his first baby in early 2016. "Whenever I'm at the gym, at the golf course, or at work, the conversation with the guys inevitably comes back to why women get to have all the fun and carry a baby. Why do they get to be the ones to nurture a fetus growing within them and establish a bond that we as men can never know?" Findings on this  breakthrough research project led by California physician, Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, are being published in the British journal The Lancet.  "We are so excited to be able to help this family and hopefully so many more with this procedure," Eyvazzadeh tells the associated press. "I'm looking forward to helping men achieve their dreams of experiencing labor and delivery for the very first time in history."
