I'm a vegetarian and I'm trying to lose weight and consume more protein. Are there benefits to eating a whole egg as compared to an egg white?

I'm a vegetarian and I'm trying to lose weight and consume more protein. Are there benefits to eating a whole egg as compared to an egg white?

Essential fatty acid: I assume you are an ovovegetarian from the nature of your question (strict vegetarians do not eat eggs). Whole egg is the egg white (protein) w/ the yolk, which is mostly cholesterol & fat. The benefits of the yolk are debated by nutritionists. Some believe it has essential (omega-3) fatty acids (EFA), vitamins A,D,&E, & short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) for digestion. Fish is also a good EFA source ...Read more

Our fertility clinic has informed us that our egg donor has a mutation of the DUOX2 gene. My husband does not. Is this mutation clinically significant? What follow-up information do I need to ask for? Should I request another donor?

How long does an "egg" remain in the tube before it is transferred to a uterus? My wife and i are looking into ivf. Before seeing a doctor, we are trying to gather as much information as possible, and this site has been a great source over the past couple

How long does an "egg" remain in the tube before it is transferred to a uterus? My wife and i are looking into ivf. Before seeing a doctor, we are trying to gather as much information as possible, and this site has been a great source over the past couple

When : When ovulation occurs, the fallopian tube actually moves over and picks up the egg. It is then transported down the tube by little projections called cilia. The sperm survive in the tube for approximately 6 days. While there, they are attached to the cells of the lining of the fallopian tube and periodically attach and detach from these cells waiting for the egg. Fertilization normally takes place in the fallopian tube as soon as a sperm attaches to the shell of the egg. The fertilized egg then goes on to develop in the tube for about 5 days. It enters the uterus 5 or 6 days after ovulation. This process has lead people to conclude that it is important for fertilization and early embryo development to happen in the fallopian tube. Many studies have been done to see if sperm and egg or embryos should be transferred into the tube rather than the uterus. Most of them did not show a benefit to doing this. As we became better at growing embryos longer in the lab, the ability to select better embryos has outweighed any theoretical advantage to a tubal transfer. Embryos are now routinely cultured 5 or 6 days in the lab and transferred to the uterus. This is called "blastocyst transfer” proponents of this technique claim that pregnancy rates are better with this technique because the embryos are placed in the uterus at the time that they normally enter the uterus. There is still some controversy surrounding this claim, but more and more centers are moving to blastocyst culture because it allows us to select better embryos from a group of embryos for transfer. I hope this helps and good luck! ...Read more

How do I know if im releasing eggs?

Ovulation predictor: Women who don't ovulate don't have regular periods. An ovulation predictor kit is a good way of confirming that you're ovulating - get from a pharmacy, don't buy a monitor. Start testing every day from day 10 in your cycle (day 1 is the first day of your period). Test between 10 am and noon. If you're irregular, or test for a couple of months and it's not working see a rei specialist if you're ttc. ...Read more

Are eggs healthy if I have 2 a day?

Are eggs healthy if I have 2 a day?

No: Although eggs are a good source of protein, like anything else they are good in moderation. If you had 2 eggs a day you would be surpassing normal cholesterol dietary intake by just eating the eggs. Not to mention if you are frying them that adds to damage. I think 5-7 eggs a week are more than enough. Try getting protein from another source. ...Read more

Possible: In our experience, by doing pgs, or checking each embryo to make sure it is chromosomal normal not only improves pregnancy rates but decreases the risk of a miscarriage. Although some clinics disagree with this, our data definitely supports the increase pregnancy rates and decrease miscarriage rates with chromosome testing. Also, emotionally, you know that you transferred normal embryos. ...Read more

Egg yolks.: While the whites of the egg contains protein, the yolk contains fat so limiting the yolks at least would be helpful.
