Do I Have A Chance To Adopt A Baby If Older
Yes: Arbitrary age for the "older" parent attempting to adopt is over 40yrs old. In the US there is more competition for adoption with younger parents for a pregnant woman on her own who will consider placing their child with you. Russia, China, Korea and India are open to adoptions for older parents. Adopters who are flexible with the age of the child will receive quicker placement. Being healthy. ...Read more
Choose wisely: It depends a lot on what country and what circumstances the child lived in. South korea, e.g., has totally separate systems for children to be adopted internationally from those adopted within the country; you can guess where kids with poorer prospects go. Also, former soviet countries had notoriously poor orphanages with many damaged children. Agencies exist to help prospective parents screen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a problem with my penis called hyspospadia. I want to know if I have a chance to produce a baby?
Hypospadia/fertility: In certain primitive cultures an incision was made in the bxxe of the penis to produce a hypospadia resulting in infertility. If you are still able to ejaculate with a release of semen intravaginally then it probably doesn't matter. If the defect is close to the base of the penis then you'll have to produce a specimen, have it washed and inseminated into your partner. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it safe to have a baby if you were told you have a 3% chance of having another one with cancer?
Personal choice: I have counselled parents that were ready for another try when told their risk of a problem exceeded 75 %, and one specifically who would not consider it at a 1% risk level. The impact of such a problem effects people differently and either spouse may have a different level of concern. With good spousal communication and a good preparation i think it is fine to move ahead. The choice must be yours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

We want a baby. I am 36 & told to wait a year to see if I have issues with pregnancy even though I've never been preg. Worried to wait b/c of my age..
I really want children later in life and worry that if I get the SCS implanted, I might not be able to have kids. Any advice?
No evidence: There is no evidence that a spinal cord stimulator implant leads to infertility. There is no scientific reason that I can think of that would lead one to suspect that infertility would be linked to this treatment modality. The specialist doing the implant may have more experience to guide you through the process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Embryo adoption: The chance of pregnancy 'on your own' is low but not zero without in vitro fertilization (ivf) to bypass your tubes, or a surgical tubal ligation reversal. A third option is embryo adoption, where embryos donated by another couple are placed inside your uterus - obviously there is no genetic connection with you or your partner. See a reproductive endocrinology / infertility or rei specialist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
