How Does Surrogacy Work?

19 August 2014

Surrogacy is a means through which a couple or an individual approaches a surrogate who agrees to carry the child till birth as the couple is unable to conceive due to fertility issues or by choice. What makes it different from an adoption is that the surrogate carries the child only after the surrogacy agreements have been made, as opposed to an adoption where the child is already born and the parents just furnish the necessary legal documents to claim their parental rights over the adopted child. Surrogacy has been an effective option for gay couples or those where either of both suffers from infertility issues. Some women are able to achieve pregnancy, but suffer from repeated miscarriages, in which case surrogacy can help.

Benefits and Types of Dental Veneers

04 August 2014

Dental veneers are thin layers or shells of ceramic that are placed onto the tooth's surface to shield the damaged tooth and/or improve its appearance. Veneers can aesthetically enhance the appearance of teeth that suffer from discoloration, damage, fracture or gaps. The veneer material is about one millimeter thick and is carefully placed onto the healthy area of the tooth's surface.

Veneers help in concealing superficial flaws found on the teeth and can also bring down the teeth's sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets. Read More

Cost of Surrogacy Abroad

01 August 2014

Surrogacy, along with the accompanying infertility treatments, can be quite challenging from a financial point of view. Determining the exact cost of surrogacy is complicated as there are many variants that come into the picture. The overall surrogacy expenses can be broadly classified into the surrogate's fee, medical expenses, surrogate agency and legal fees. Surrogacy and infertility treatments are typically not covered as a part of health insurance. Many couples save for years together, while others borrow from their retirement funds, or bring in funds from home mortgages to be able to afford a surrogacy. Some surrogacy agencies provide financing plans to couples, so they can pay up the overall amount in installments over a period of time, instead of paying up the steep costs upfront. Other payment arrangements could ask of the parents to pay up after the child's birth or in equal installments through the pregnancy. Read More

Ovulation and Conception, Timing Intercourse for Pregnancy

28 July 2014

Timing is a crucial aspect in the conception process. Of the million eggs that are present in a woman's body from birth, only 300-400 of them are released during ovulation. The one egg that is released every month travels to the uterus from the fallopian tube, where it can be fertilized. Sperms typically survive for nearly 3-5 days, while an egg survives for 12-24 hours. In some very rare cases the egg may survive for three days post ovulation. Since the egg is present in the fallopian tube only during ovulation, timing the intercourse with respect to the ovulation period can help in improving your chances at conception. Read More
