Eggs, Sperms and a New Arrival

On my way to work this week, listening to NPR, these stories intrigued me greatly.

According to one report:

Some fertility centers are now offering egg freezing to young women who want to put off motherhood. Because of uncertainties surrounding the procedure, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine recommends against it.

This report was how some women preferred to defer child birth by having their eggs frozen, so that they go thru their careers, boyfriends and when the time is right and the mate is right, they will artificially inseminate the frozen egg or choose to deliver their child naturally. Call me old fashioned, but this totally creeped me out. I cant really articulate why, but does’nt sound right to me, unless someone is afflicted with a terminal disease.

Listen to the report here

In another report:

In an effort to prevent unwanted pregnancy, researchers continue working to develop new safe and effective methods of contraception for men. In one approach men, ironically, are injected with testosterone -- the hormone that helps make sperm.

Check out the report here.

Friday night action, a dose of Viagara to get it up and then a shot of testosterone to get it down, the sperm count i.e, and bonk away merrily ever after.

While on procreation, Wasghington zoo has a new arrival, a baby Panda. Check this out

The infant panda in the Washington Zoo went in for its first month checkup -- panda pediatricians say it's a boy. The cub was born hairless -- about the size of a stick of butter. Now it's close to two pounds, a foot long, healthy, fuzzy, fluffy and very cute, with big black rings around its eyes. A good thing in a panda. He's still baby whatisname --- we'll let you know when the zoo picks a name.

You can watch live cam of the baby Panda right here. Check it out, its really mesmerising.

There was an episode on HBO's 'SEX AND THE CITY'..where Meranda got her 'EGGS' freezed up at the fertility center for future use.

I think this trend will pick up in the Western world...but will take ages to reach the Asian countries.

Hi Sakshi
I hope this trend does not pick up even in the West since then eggs will teng to get frozen for frivolous reasons.

Anyway thanks for stopping by.
