woman affected by fertility clinic sperm switch scandal talks about finding out the truth

We can't even imagine!

One family from Texas never thought something like this was possible. But they discovered the shocking news when they decided to trace their family by testing their DNA.

Annie Branum was astounded to discover that her biological father was actually a man named Thomas Lippert who was working at the Utah fertility clinic who switched his sperm with Annie's father.

Lippert is now deceased but he was a convict and jailed for a kidnapping charge.

Here's what Annie said happened when her mother first told her the news:

Kim Kardashian Didn't Want Children Before Getting Knocked Up?!

The long holiday weekend didn't only celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr., but also the return of MAJOR drama with the two night premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami!

On the first episodes back, we see the days leading up to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's bun in the oven and as always, there were no shortage of shockers — about Kimmy's fertility that is!

It was disclosed that Kim's hormone levels were dangerously low for concieving a child just MONTHS before her miracle pregnancy.

Kim said during the episode:

“When I went to the doctor a couple months ago, he took tests to check my hormones and my levels, and everything was really suppressed and really low because I’ve been on birth control for so many years. I want to have kids one day, so he really suggested that I get off birth control. I’m 31, and my egg levels came back as a woman that’s in my 50s. I’m concerned just hearing all this information of how every woman is born with a certain amount of eggs, and that number to never be increased. Maybe this just isn’t in the cards for me, and I’m freaking out a little bit.”

Kim was so discouraged by her test results (and the fact that she could barely take care of her now deceased kitten, Mercy) that she even reconsidered having kids all together!

When it comes to fertility problems, disappointment can be a large part of trying to find a good egg donor.

Places like New York make finding a good egg donor hard, because the demand is so high.

When looking for fresh eggs, the selection is very limited and pricey.

So more women are turning to frozen eggs!

What The Tabs Are Talking About!

Guess we're not the only folks hearing about Kristen Stewart cheating ways stemming much further back than just Rupert Sanders!

In fact, Robert Pattinson is apparently the ONLY person who hasn't caught wind of her "twisted double life," but his friends are ready to blow the whistle on his estranged girlfriend's shenanigans!

JUICY! We'll keep an eye on where this one GOES…even though we don't want to see our R-Patz broken-hearted!

Which is EXACTLY how Miz Demi Moore is feeling these days!

The actress is pushing 50, and her friends are concerned that this reality, along with her estranged husband Ashton Kutcher's very PUBLIC romance with Mila Kunis may just be too much for her already-fragile emotional state!

It's about time those two just officially called their union quits…which in other news, is apparently what Khloe Kardashian and her hubby

Khloe Kardashian Can't Have Kids??

Khloe Kardashian Baby Talk

Khloe Kardashian got some bad news recently. She's not ovulating.

If she and hubby Lamar Odom are going to have any chance of having kids of their own, they'll have to undergo state of the art fertility treatments.

What made it especially tough getting this news for Khloe was being next to Kourtney, who was just weeks away from popping out Penelope!

Ch-ch-check out the video AFTER THE JUMP to see Khloe and terrible secret-keeper Kim share the bad tidings with the rest of the family.

Poor Khloe! We hope everything works out, gurl!

MEdical Clown Israel

Hospitals are scary, and they're not fun.

Usually.

A bunch of Israeli hospitals (25 of them) would like to turn at least half of that around — and have employed Medical Clowns to Patch Adams the place up a little bit!

They are on the staff, and have been trained to be there… one Israeli university even offers what might be the first full-time degree program for medical clowning!

Filed under: Baby BlabberScience!

stem cells ovaries

Thanks to their ticking biological clocks, women have always been under pressure to start popping out babies sooner than later, but thanks to science, that may not be the case anymore.

Reproductive biologist Jonathan Tilly has discovered that it is possible to harvest stem cells from female ovaries and turn them into oocytes, a.k.a., egg cells.

The revolutionary study "opens up a number of exciting possibilities for preserving the fertility of women," as Tilly explained:
