  • BioEdge: Are older mums selfish?
    course the older the woman is the more likely she s got medical problems The medical side is only part of it It is selfish and self centred of older women to have babies because they are not just babies they are babies for a little while and they become people They are starting out in life having a family working getting mortgages and have to deal with geriatric parents It s just not fair Other doctors took a more optimistic view Another leading obstetrician Dr Ross Pagano commented that his patients were healthier and had freely chosen their lifestyle This is a worldwide situation women s lives are different they re more liberated I guess they ve got careers they want to make sure their relationship is steady and at 37 they re quite fit and healthy compared to a 37 year old 30 years ago I ve seen a huge increase in the numbers of older mothers especially in the last 10 years but I haven t noticed a huge increase in the medical problems I was expecting However the issue of older mothers is unlikely to go away Later in the month a leading IVF specialist in Melbourne Dr Gab Kovacs reminded women that they should not rely upon freezing their eggs as a safety net in the event that they failed to meet Mr Right I think they should be working harder to find a partner or changing their criteria for Mr Right Maybe there is no Mr Right and you have to settle for Mr Not Too Bad There is no such thing as a perfect person for anybody and even if they re perfect now they won t be perfect in five or 10 years time MORE ON THESE TOPICS Australia egg freezing older

    donation necessarily imply the genetic detachment of the child from one of its parents couples themselves seem determined to do as much as possible to ensure genetic bonds between their children Donor offspring are increasingly seeking their genetic half siblings through online registries said Ms Somers It s relatively uncharted territory but it s clear that a genetic link among donor conceived children is important for aspiring parents According to findings from this study full siblings were described by the parents as having real and unambiguous kin connections Some couples talked about their need to use a new sperm donor if the one they had used for their first child was no longer available This was described for instance as a problem When this situation became reality for one couple they were really disappointed and blamed the hospital for making the mistake of not informing them about the limited stock of sperm MORE ON THESE TOPICS sperm donation This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that

  • Sperm bank industry lucrative and growing
    Copenhagen Economics The multinational giant Cryos International has its headquarters in Demark Sperm banks around the world have been thriving due to certain sociological trends such as the delayer boom the trend for women to put off having children until they reach an age at which their fertility is reduced and the growing acceptance in many Western societies of single parent or same sex families Most sperm donors chose to remain anonymous and are paid nominal amounts for their donation Sperm is sold at variable prices depending among other factors on the amount of information available about the donor There are however concerns about a lack of regulation on sperm being shipped internationally The number of children born to sperm donors could be much higher than authorities think as there is no real way of accurately monitoring supply Cryos and many of its US counterparts ship directly to women s homes which means women can self inseminate and authorities might never find out Authorities are also concerned about the number of babies that a sperm donor could potentially father The average Cryos donor fathers 25 children but some could have 100 offspring There are claims that some men have 200 Restrictions have been imposed on sperm banks in many Western nations These limits however differ between nations The possibility of international shipments makes laws in different countries less effective MORE ON THESE TOPICS government regulation identity sperm donation This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles on this site are
