New IVF Test Increases Chance Of Having A Healthy Baby

New IVF Test Increases Chance Of Having A Healthy Baby

A new In Vitro Fertilization test has been developed that increases a woman’s chance of having a baby, and it could significantly decrease the chance of couples having miscarriages or babies born with Down’s syndrome.

The screening checks embryos for chromosome abnormalities. The bad embryos are thrown away, and only those which stand the best chance of developing into a healthy foetus are implanted back into the womb.

It will also help women in their late 30s and early 40s who many times struggle to get pregnant. Trials have shown that up to 88 per cent of women receiving tested embryos give birth. Not only that, but the test has been so successful thus far that doctors expect it will be widely available within the next few years.

This is fabulous! Couples wanting a child will no longer have to worry as much about whether or not it will be born healthy!

Octo-Doctor Might Lose His Medical License

Octo-Doctor Might Lose His Medical License

And he absolutely should!

Dr. Michael Kamrava, who helped Octo-Mom conceive her 14 children through in vitro fertilization is facing charges that could result in the loss of his medical license.

Kamrava is accused of several instances of gross negligence, including implanting too many embryos in Suleman. One accusation says that Kamrava implanted embryos "far in excess of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine recommendation and beyond the reasonable judgment of any treating physician."

Some of the risks of implanting too many embryos (for the children) include bleeding in the brain, intestinal problems, developmental delays and lifelong learning disabilities.

His hearing is set for Monday morning in downtown Los Angeles.
