I'm 28 male, want to know how to increase the chances of getting a baby boy? Any solution? thank you!
No: About 6,000 women conceive baby boys in the U.S. every day. That's a big number, so one should not worry, and just give it a try. In normal couples, there's a 50% chance of having a boy with each pregnancy. Nature plans it this way to avoid excess males. China has a 15%, and India a 13%, excess in young males. There are not enough wives nor male-male couples to absorb the excess single males. ...Read more

Get this checked by a pcp if it's true change in the shape of the facial features and hands/feet. ...Read more

I'm 30/f and my partner is 42/m. If i get pregnant this year what is risk of autism or schizophrenia due to age? Anything i can do to minimize risk?
I think your fears: Are based on older research. When very few people were having children later in life the statistics were skewed. Since this has changed i believe the risks of retardation and mental health problems are no longer showing as higher for older couples. Eat healthy foods, exercise. Relax and get good prenatal care. Enjoy your pregnancy and the beginning of becoming a parent! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Is there a test for men to assist finding out if sperm can lead to child disability? I'm 37 and thinking of starting family.
Time to ponder: Men get a bit of a pass on that issue with age.Women start out with all their eggs & as they age the eggs accumulate exposures/toxic events and may be impaired with age.Sperm are constantly generated from stem cells as new & the healthiest best swimmers get to the egg first. A meeting with a clinical geneticist with your spouse may be in order.Both your family trees have input to eventual outcome ...Read more

Are there any other options a couple has if tubal reversal nor putting the egg and sperm together is an option? I'm 44 years old and know my age is a factor. Please give me the best option you can. We are wanting the child to be of me and him.
Given : Given the age factor, in vitro fertilization is probably your best bet. If you can't or won't undergo either reversal of the tubal ligation (which takes some time that you may not have) or in vitro fertilization, your likelihood of pregnancy is extremely small: it is possible to have a natural pregnancy after tubal ligation, but this is not very likely--especially if the mother is 44 years old. ...Read more
