  • joyousorrow
    joyousorrow 24 days ago +1

    I think this video should've talked about male infertility too.. since infertility can effect both genders.. just my opinion.. also it's help repair and false facts and stigma that only women are to blame for infertility when it may not be them but their male significant other or both of them.
    Edit: Also can we add in breast cancer in men too... for the same reasons b/c people don't realize it's very possible to happen as well in them

    Endometriosis is similar tissue it is not the same as what it is in the uterus, 70% of women with endometriosis will conceive but obviously surgery and other things may decrease the percentage 💛

  • Olivia Sturgeon
    Olivia Sturgeon 25 days ago

    The test she was talking about, where they inject a dye into your uterus and Fallopian tubes, is called a sonohysterogram. They are not supposed to hurt, but for a small percentage of women, it is very painful...i happen to be one of those women. It felt like the worst period cramps ever...multiplied by 30x!

    I got pregnant while breastfeeding, it was a bit of a surprise as it took 2 years to get pregnant with our first. So to get pregnant 10 months postpartum, was a surprise so say the least!

    Omg i love her! The best doctor I ever had, so informative, open minded and approachable 👌👌

  • Leena Parsons
    Leena Parsons 27 days ago

    So this confuses me because if we lose eggs each cycle, then why did my OBGYN tell me losing a whole ovary would not effect my fertility? Wouldn't that mean my eggs would all be gone sooner?

    Bring an urologist and talk about male genitalia health.

  • John Smith

    Uhh. You skipped the first question by just saying that eggs are "retrieved". You wanna actually answer the question?

    can you donate(or sell) your uterus if its healthy to someone who wants it? im planning on getting spayed anyway and am young.

      “Getting spayed” I laughed out loud

    • Kain Hargrieves
      Kain Hargrieves 23 days ago +1

      @joyousorrow Well, yeah. Cause if you take out a vital organ you'd die lol

    • joyousorrow
      joyousorrow 23 days ago +1

      @Kain Hargrieves I knew some organs you don't need to have passed on (i.e. donating one of your kidneys is one of the organs you can donate while still being alive). But Didn't know that was one of the organs you can. If I recall most of the more vital ones you can't donate while you're alive though.

    • Kain Hargrieves
      Kain Hargrieves 23 days ago +3

      @joyousorrow Not necessarily. I read an article where a woman, who had three children already, wanted to donate her uterus so someone else so they can have their own kids. She did it. You don't have to be dead to donate an organ you don't need.

  • peter tingle
    peter tingle 27 days ago

    I would donate my eggs, but i don't think that that would turn out well bc the baby could get epilepsy or birth defects bc of me bc I'm epileptic and epilepsy is genetic with the women in my family.

    Do you still "loose" eggs every month if you have an IUD? And if you have one does your chances of getting preagnent after taking it off decreases?

    • Julia Arnold
      Julia Arnold 26 days ago

      Renata Vontobel yes, the purpose of an iud is to cause irritation to the walls of the uterus to stop proper implantation. Everything else remains the same.

      Saahib Vlog it is a women who donetes her eggs to women who cannot get pregnant themselves. Kinda like a sperm donor only the process is more complicated.
