In the Hendersons’ case, the couple was able to successfully undergo infertility treatment in the past and now have one child, yet failed to see gains from a similar treatment covered by Clarion the second time. Consequently, the Hendersons were advised to seek a more involved, costly procedure in relation to the previous treatment; however, there was little medical evidence presented regarding the success rate and medical necessity for the recommended treatment.
After a failed vasectomy reversal, this couple discovered the key to growing their family: IVF at our Las Vegas fertility center.
Growing up having kids is something that you simply assume would happen. It was never even a question you always knew that one day you would be a parent and that having kids seemed like a natural step in becoming an adult. Your thoughts are to meet someone, get married, and eventually have children.Sometimes life doesn't work out that way. Many women have trouble conceiving depending on age and how the body reacts to developing a child. Some people don’t have to try to get pregnant but others aren’t so lucky they have to continue to try until your results come out positive, so to speak. But trying to conceive and failing after many attempts can be overwhelming and frustrating always trying to stay positive that this time will work. It’s important to start the process of finding out what test’s you have to take to know if you're able to have children; and what are options for infertility.
My OB clinical rotation day at Tri-City Health Center comprised of a slow day at first, then busy day towards the end. I feel lucky to experience my OB rotation at Tri-City Health Center this Tuesday. Tri-City Health Center is a clinic that serves the community by promoting optimal health to patients and provide preventive measures to eliminate diseases. During my rotation at this clinic, I learned that Tri-City serves a wide variety of patients without regard to financial position, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. In my rotation at Tri-City, I spend the day at Suite D which is their OB and women’s health clinic where I met their wonderful staff. Dr. Martinez was the only doctor in the clinic at the time and she was accompanied by two medical assistants (MA).
have always wanted to adopt but never knew I could be a foster parent at such a young age or without
I am one of many that are incapable of having kids on my own without the help from doctors. Having been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome at a younger age, I am one of many women who are not able to have kids on my own. I know that “missing” feeling people get when you start to plan out your life, not knowing if one day the gap will be filled or if you should fill the void with something else. This is where I want to be; the space between life and the gap; to try and help fill the inconsistency of others that share this discomfort. There is not anything more discomforting than someone with multiple kids patting your back, whispering soothing tones of “sorry” and wishful promises of, “it will happen for you one day.” Why, because you have the uterus of a donut machine at the local Krispy Kreme? I want to be the person there saying “I know what it’s like, and I’m going to be here to help you through this process.” This is why it is important to me to become a nurse in the field of infertility; to help others with this problem would not only provide me great satisfaction, but it will also help me to understand my own struggles with this problem.
“When children enter foster care, the initial plan is for children to return to live with their families once they have adequately resolved the problems that made their children unsafe and made foster care necessary.” “While a little more than half of children who enter care return home to their birth families, the rest will need other plans to end the temporary placement of foster care.” (childrensaidsociety.org) Even with foster care some children hope to find a permanent family to live with but according to research, today adoption is viewed as a last resort, even for couples with fertility problems. (Reed, Leslie,) Today people have fears of bonding with the child, unknown health issues and behavioral issues. (Patricelli, Kathryn). In the future adoption will revolve around securing information with international adoption, getting more access to original birth certificates and other legal
Despite getting a fair amount of publicity in the news current treatments for infertility, in terms of percentages, are not very successful. One estimate is that current infertility treatments are less than 10 percent successful. Couples go through physically and emotionally painful procedures for a small chance of having
This past Thursday was the first OB clinical day and I was assigned the post partum unit. I was paired with Nurse Donna, who was full of information. Originally we had three couplets, with one baby in the nursrey. As the day went on and families were discharged, all our patients had gone home so we gained three other patients from two other nurses so they could go home for the day. I was able to give two moms their TDAP (tetanus, diptheria, and pertusis) vaccines and learned a new trick when it comes to giving intramuscular shots. Donna told me to have the patient hang her arm down by her side and wiggle her fingers. This not only had the patient concentrating on something other than the shot they were about to get, but it helped activate the

I have had five miscarriages from age 18 through 24. When I met my fiancé in 2006, we decided to start trying to get pregnant with the help of an OBGYN. The OBGYN doctor told me I would be lucky to ever get pregnant because of the medical issues I had. So, after six long, painful, years going back and forth to the doctor to run tests and four different surgeries on my female organs, I was finally pregnant.
Infertility is a medical diagnosis that affects millions of couples each year. This medical diagnosis has been around for centuries. Reasons for infertility range from simple issues to more complex with both partners being affected. Around 1980’s medical procedures began in the Unites States for treatment. Since then there has been major advancement in infertility (Infertility United States, 1982).
Infertility can be extremely challenging for couples to overcome. It can be not only physically draining, but emotionally and mentally as well. Infertility can be easily compared to a roller coaster, with emotions going up and down from hope and optimism plummeting down to frustration and even grief after many the couple has tried for a long period of time. While for me personally, I first think of women when I think of infertility, the men play a large role as well. They are also hoping for children and the biological reason for the infertility can be from either sex. Research has also shown that infertility can make physically difficult and cause anxiety in couples, which could led to increased difficulty in conceiving (Domar & Gordon,
It is assumed by most that we will all be able to grow up, fall in love, get married, and then have children of our own. This is not the lifestyle that all people choose, but it is still the view accepted by the majority of society. What happens when the unthinkable occurs and a happily married couple is unable to get pregnant? This is a reality for 7.1%, or 2.8 million, of the married couples in the United States (Lenox, 1999). Today, there are many people all over the world that decide to use fertility treatments to help them conceive a child, and this often leads to the birth of twins, triplets, or even higher order multiples. There are many risk factors that are involved in this type of
Mother: We tried for several months to get pregnant before we were successful. We both were reluctant to try for a child again because of a traumatic miscarriage I experienced several years prior. We both really wanted to be parents and made a tough decision.
