I have a question about infertility? Why did they always call women barren when the men might have been at fault

Guys weren't checked: Usually, the first stop when a couple cannot conceive is the woman's gynecologist. The standard teaching with infertility is that the male factor plays a role about 50% of the time, so a semen analysis should always be obtained and properly evaluated by a lab when a couple can't get pregnant. If there are significant abnormalities it should be repeated and the patient referred to a urologist. ...Read more

Are pregnant women over 35 always treated as high risk or can they see a regular nurse-midwife or OB if in good health and no abnormalities w/baby?

20 year-old woman with 2 painful left popliteal lumps, "inconclusive" x-ray and MRI, leading to difficulty standing or walking.....?

Excisional Biopsy: Since the X-rays and MRI are inconclusive, it would be prudent to have one of the lumps removed for pathological evaluation (excisional biopsy). It is likely a benign process, like an angiolipoma, a neurfoibroma, a neurilemoma or a Masson's tumor, but a pathological diagnosis is your best option at this time. Plus, removing the lump will likely make the pain resolve. Good luck. ...Read more
