Philosophical issue: On this earth, life only comes from life. A living being only comes from living material, but the problem occurs when we humans try to agree on when something is "alive", and at what point that "alive" something can be called a person, an animal, or a plant. There will always be disagreements, because very important rights, privileges, and laws apply when that "alive" something becomes a person. ...Read more
Hi, I just had my first cycle of ICSI and had 2 embryos transferd Today is my day 14 (PT), I had a negative result, why?? What happen my embryos??
IVF-Not Pregnant: The most likely reason that you are not pregnant is embryo quality. Embryo appearance is a very poor predictor of embryo quality. Depending on your age, as many as 85% of the embryos on day 3 are abnormal. After genetic screening on day 5 about 50% are normal and 50-60% of those go on to implant. ...Read more
Can tetrogens cross to an embryo at implantation? Or does this only happen once the placenta is formed?
Yes, they can: Placenta and embryo evolve from the same structure, which is the clump of cells that originate from the division of the fused sperm/egg. Without blood supply from the mother, these events could not happen. So, with the blood to the evolving fetus/placenta, come the teratogens to the embryo. ...Read more

What happens if doctors implanted a cloned human embryo and allowed it to grow to term would the resultant child be healthy?
Should be nothing: Technically, the stem cells are the future baby cells. When you do chromosome testing or pgs, the biopsy or cells are taken from the trophectoderm cells or future placental cells that are at the outer wall of the embryo. Removing several of these cells from a day five embryo, or blastocyst, by a skilled embryologist, should not harm the embryo or the resulting baby. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pathology: Typically the specimens are sent to a pathologist, a doctor, who looks at them under a microscope and confirms the type of tissue they are. When pathologic examination is complete, the products of conception (embryo) and tube are incinerated. This is the case for placentas at birth and a variety of other biological tissues. Incineration is safe and destroys any disease as well. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

An aenbryonic pregnancy is estblished if a transvaginal ultrasound reveals a sac with a mean gestational sac diameter (mgd) greater than 13 mm and no yolk sac, or an mgd >18 mm with no embryo. Your pregnancy should be followed w/ ultrasound to assure no complications occur (unlikely) and the viable embryo develops. ...Read more
