A new fertility product to help you conceive naturally
How the DuoFertility programme can help you overcome the fertility challenge and take control of an emotional journey.
Lara heard about DuoFertility from her mum, after she read about it in the paper. ‘DuoFertility was just what I needed. I wanted to be reassured that I was actually ovulating and if possible avoid, or even just identify whether I might need fertility treatment. DuoFertility helped us do this effectively and in the shortest amount of time possible so we didn’t delay.’
A recent report states that there is a higher risk of complications and multiple births in pregnancies that result from IVF techniques.
A report by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists said there were increased risks of premature births, low birth weight and congenital abnormalities. However, it said the vast majority of IVF children were as healthy as other children. IVF accounts for over 1% of UK births. Advances in fertility research have allowed more infertile couples to have children and at an older age.
The number of people accessing fertility treatments such as IVF and ICSI has risen in the UK by almost six percent in the past year.
Statistics released by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HEFA) revealed the number of fertility cycles carried out in 2010 stood at 57,652 – a 5.9 percent increase on treatments in 2009. It was also found that the age of women having such treatments is rising; within the last 20 years it has increased by 18 months.
Donor Network Alliance co-founder Nancy Block was recently interviewed on the nationally broadcast Radio Health Journal to discuss the process of egg donation and what intended parents and donors can expect when working with an agency. She also discusses the benefits of the using the Donor Network Alliance and how donors are screened. Check it out: http://www.mediatracks.com/RHJ_10-07.mp3
I don’t think that I ever hoped that someone was NOT pregnant, but this case certainly was one. And, now she has been exposed as a “fraud” – thank goodness for those “babies.”
