I want a boy baby. Is there any way to get? I can't understand the medical words well. So please tell me how can I get a boy baby?

It's pretty simple..: About 6,000 women conceive baby boys in the U.S. every day. That's a big number, so one should relax, not worry, and just give it a try. Have sex 1-2 times a day, for 7 days, starting about 18 days before the estimated first day of the NEXT menstrual bleeding period. In normal couples, there is a 50% chance of getting a boy with every pregnancy! That is pretty good odds. Nature plans it this way. ...Read more

About IVF treatment i want to know that in this system how it is possible to born the child without his/her parents sperm/egg?

Not how it works: A baby can not be born without an egg and a sperm. With ivf the egg is removed from the ovary. Then it is mixed with the sperm from the father. Fertilization then occurs. Then the fertilized egg is implanted back into the uterus. In some cases using an egg or sperm from a third party donor is needed but in any case 1 sperm and 1 egg are needed for fertilization. ...Read more

What are natural ways for a woman to not get pregnant?me and my future husband don't want kids right now. What would be the healthiest thing to do?

Abstinence. But why?: Abstaining from intercourse is the only way to be certain to avoid pregnancy without a form of birth control. That said, if you know you want children later, and still want to be able to enjoy sex other then oral or digital/manual stimulation, why not consider a durable method like a copper IUD? That's as close to natural contraception as you will get. Talk to GYN about your options. ...Read more

And ask what you will gain by giving up a relationship with them. Is there another way? ...Read more

There : There are geneticists that can be counseled prior to becoming pregnant. Both you and your partner will be interviewed and based on history genetic testing for certain disease can be done. On the other hand you can wait until you are pregnant and have your doctor schedule a visit with a prenatal genetic counselors. They will be able to determine your baby's chances of having a genetic disorder or birth defect. The role of the counselor is to make sure you understand all the medical and technical information, and to help you navigate through your feelings so that you can make an informed choice if it comes to that. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

With great precision: An early ultrasound is the most precise (+/- 3-5 days until 8 weeks) in the determination of the due date and therefore the fetal age. This declines to +/-5-7 days @8-12 weeks +/-7-10 days @13-23 weeks +/-10-14 days @24-28 weeks +/-14-17 days @29-32 weeks and +/- 17-21 days thereafter. Due to the biological variation of the ovulation date ultrasound <24 weeks is more reliable than last period! ...Read more
