@oluwakemine: I was shocked as well that the new clinic could say that, in my mind I was like shebi we are the one going to pay but the Lady said its not about the money rather its about medical ethics and patients health. My husband self vex telling them we have gone through more than dozen of fertility treatments and nothing to show for it that they should accept us ”edakun”. Them no gree o…They said they are aware and that even if I go to another country that its the same procedure that I am currently on that they will place me on, so its better I just hope for the best in the next cycle.
Based on that report, I have intensify my weightloss regimen (drinking water like water will soon finish on planet earth) I have ditched the car and started walking. Let see how this will go…
@oluwakemine: That true (April23-29), It didnt even occur to me that next week is global fertility awareness week, I guess that justifies the summit I am seeing upandan.

Maternal age and obesity are being identified as key factors in recurring pregnancy loss
MATERNAL age and obesity are being identified as key factors in recurring pregnancy loss, an Adelaide seminar will be told on Wednesday night.
And women who suffer miscarriages should talk about their experiences so they can preserve their relationships and avoid shouldering the blame.
Obstetricians and fertility experts at Fertility SA, Dr Dee McCormack and Associate Professor Louise Hull, recently returned from the Second World Congress on Recurrent Pregnancy Loss in France and will present their findings to the public on Wednesday night.
Dr McCormack said it was generally agreed that, when a woman had three miscarriages, it was diagnosed as recurrent pregnancy loss and that current global research to prevent it was focusing on lifestyle factors.
“Maternal age is a huge issue,” she said.
“From the age of 35, fertility goes down and the rate of spontaneous miscarriage goes up.”
She said too often celebrities who publicised having their babies in their late-40s and into their 50s – as singer Janet Jackson did when she gave birth in January at the age of 50 – fuelled a belief that women could get pregnant at any age.
She said many celebrities were “incredible liars” because they did not admit to using donated ovum or embryos.
“That gives people ideas they can keep getting pregnant at 50 … but truth is that the risk of miscarriage by the age of 45 is in the region of 90 per cent; not even IVF can change that.”
Dr McCormack said in her clinic, almost half of the women suffering recurring miscarriages had some form of insulin dysfunction.
“There is no question that obesity contributes, not exercising, poor diet … but we need to be doing proper research.”
Dr Hull said the World Congress was the second ever held, which showed there was now a large network of people across the globe dedicated to furthering research.
“It was really great to see that people are rising to the challenge around the world and hopefully that even just focusing on that area will give us better information, better care, better tests and better management,” she said.
Dr McCormack said it was important that people spoke about their miscarriages.
“About 50 per cent (of miscarriages) are genetic, which nobody can do anything about but, because people don’t talk about it, it becomes taboo and people think they’re the only one and it’s extremely traumatic.”
She said miscarriages were in fact very common – with an estimated 60 per cent of all conceptions ending in miscarriage – but they could be destructive to the couples and individuals who had them.
Watching ”Person of Interest” while 2ww passes…
Thank you @pearl for this article. It’s quite interesting bit of news.
Sending you loads of this 2WW and happy watching?
What’s the Person of Interest about? A crime series?
Person of Interest is a season movie about crimes; solving crimes and helping people who are possibly going to be affected by those crimes…and one thing I love about this particular one is different cases and how they are been tackled. I must confess I am enjoying it.
