When you subtract 2 weeks from the ga provided by an ultrasound, does that give you the estimated fertilisation age or the estimated fetal age?
Yes: When estimating gestational age by using an ultrasound scan, 2 weeks are added to the fetal age (the fetal age is the fertilisation age). ...Read more
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
Could anavar affect the fetus if I've taken 5 mg during ovulation/fertilization time but discontinued it couple days after?
Conception: Sperm enter vagina in semen & then pass thru cervix, pass thru uterus into fallopian tube containing ovum or egg after ovulation. 1 sperm pierces thru membrane covering ovum & nucleus of sperm fuses with nucleus of ovum. This fertilized ovum now divides from 1 cell to 2 then 4 & so on.Now an embryo, transfers to body of uterus. Stem cells, within embryo divide, now a fetus develop various tissues ...Read more

We have some idea of how each parameter matters, but certain aspects are not understood . With significant abnormalities, sometimes the sperm just do not function as well, or sometimes the sperm may have genetic abnormalities and the effect goes beyond the #. ...Read more

My boyfriend says his semen isn't 'mature' enough to fertilize an egg. How can that be possible? Can it be fixed?
Here are some...: Abnormal sperms denote those sperms with odd shape or poor motility, which tend to less possibly penetrate the timely waiting egg. Nonetheless, if luckily and successfully penetrating to get into the egg takes place, fertilization (union) occurs to form zygote which in turn undergo cell division to form embryo, which will embed onto uterine mucosa (endometrium) where it eventually develops fetus ...Read more
