Is there foods, supplements etc. That stimulate ovaries to release multiple eggs at the same time?

Is there foods, supplements etc. That stimulate ovaries to release multiple eggs at the same time?

I'd bet against it: Maybe not my last dollar, certainly not my life, but i's be very surprised to hear that there is a connection between nutrition (food or supplements) and the genetic tendency to release multiple ripened eggs in the same cycle. Perhaps an obgyn will respond too. ...Read more

Does the hCG trigger shot make you release all follicles or only all of the mature follicles?

What hormones stimulate the release of gnrh?

What hormones stimulate the release of gnrh?

Insulin: GnRH is stimulated by an increase in insulin (as can be seen in PCOS). An increase in prolactin causes a decrease in GnRH. GnRH is low in early childhood, then is activated in puberty, and has a pulsatile release for normal reproductive function. What exactly initiates puberty is not completely known with biological and environmental factors playing a role. ...Read more

What are some natural supplements or foods that trigger the release of glucagon?

What are some natural supplements or foods that trigger the release of glucagon?

Why?: No natural foods of supplements trigger the release of glucagon. Since glucagon elevates blood sugar, i'm not sure why you would want to increase glucagon in the first place. Diabetes will lead to very elevated glucagon levels, but i wouldn't recommend developing diabetes either. ...Read more

After egg matures in ovary, does it releases estrogen to signal brain to release LH even on Clomid (clomiphene) cycle? Or the process different on clomid (clomiphene)?

After egg matures in ovary, does it releases estrogen to signal brain to release LH even on Clomid (clomiphene) cycle? Or the process different on clomid (clomiphene)?

Once the corpus: Luteum (maturing egg) starts producing estrogen, it feedbacks to the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to inhibit gnrh/lh/fsh production. Clomid (clomiphene) selectively inhibits the estrogen receptor in the hypothalmus which 'tricks' the body to release more fsh, which inturn causes growth of more ovarian follicles, and subsequently rupture of follicles resulting in ovulation to increase fertility. ...Read more

What number of divisions occur during meiosis and how many sperm are produced per germ cell?

What number of divisions occur during meiosis and how many sperm are produced per germ cell?

Here are my take ...: As I still could remember from what I learned in residency, a germ cell will go through 6 times of division over a span of approximately74 days resulting in 148 sperms. Of course, you may surf the Internet. In reality, this Q is not practically and clinically relevant so I didn't look up for confirmation. ...Read more

What triggers the release of growth hormone?

What triggers the release of growth hormone?

Ghrelin and GHRH: The production of GH is triggered when GHRELIN, produced in the stomach and GH RELEASING HORMONE, produced in the hypothalamus, are ACTIVATED. These turned on hormones stimulate the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland to release the GH. GH then regulates several physiologic processes, including protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism; stimulates mitosis, cell differentiation and cell growth. ...Read more

What are the pituitary hormones that stimulate the production of melanin in the body?

What are the pituitary hormones that stimulate the production of melanin in the body?

Melanocytes: Melanin is produced by melanocytes located in your hair, eyes, and skin. It is the pigment that is responsible for skin color. They are not produced by the pituitary.

Does high quantity of eggs retrieved in a pcos patient affect the quality of eggs ? Does pcos patients produce more eggs than a normal female ?

Does high quantity of eggs retrieved in a pcos patient affect the quality of eggs ? Does pcos patients produce more eggs than a normal female ?

Sort of: Most ivf programs see a trend. Women with pcos who undergo stimulation typically have vigorous responses with very high Estradiol levels, along with a higher-than-average risk for hyperstimulation syndrome. Large number of eggs may be retrieved but usually of lesser quality. Anecdotally, most have seen large follicle numbers but with low egg yield. ...Read more

I have an 2cm ovarian cyst, does that mean my egg wasn't released?

I have an 2cm ovarian cyst, does that mean my egg wasn't released?
