It reveals that fertility scientists are trying to increase the chance of a successful IVF procedure through more effective analysis of fertilized embryos. Using mice in a case study, they found that “when a sperm entered an egg, the egg’s jelly-like innards would start to […]

So, this is disturbing…

I read this little tidbit today on the internet. Here, here is the link: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-07-17/ivf-lottery-slammed/2797642 A lottery for IVF.

Yeaaah. I am BACK.

And holy crap, there is a ton of spam on my site! Wow! I mean, really. Look at it. Just LOOK. It reminds me of an untamed garden where once stood neat and tidy rows of freesia. I had no idea I’d come back to this. But here I am. I came back. Glad to […]
