Gastroparesis: Gastroparesis is defined as slow emptying of the stomach. It's common in diabetics, although anyone can develop it. Although the gastric emptying study is the gold standard for diagnosis, most people diagnosed with this problem also have an upper endoscopy or an upper G.I. x-ray to help rule out obstruction of some sort. You might discuss this with your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more

What if all the working women had all their eggs frozen at 18?

What if all the working women had all their eggs frozen at 18?

The idea has much merit in that younger eggs are more fertility. Practical, moral, and ethical concerns do rise in that who pays for the freezing and what happens to the eggs if the owner dies in an accident, etc. ...Read more

How long does it take for the sprem to get to the womens egg?

Here are some ...: Known to us, once inseminated in the vagina, the sperms may survive for 3-7 days during which sperms competitively swim through cervix, uterine cavity, Fallopian's tube to fertilize the awaiting egg.

Can you please tell me why everyone always says women are born with all of their eggs?

Because it's true: Men constantly manufacture sperm from stem cells and the supply is relatively unlimited. But a woman is born with all the eggs she will ever have (thousands) and these go through a series of changes and mature, by the teens, many of the original eggs are gone and a finite number remains. Some are healthier than others. All are subject to the daily exposure to toxic events that could cause problems. ...Read more
