I have a female friend who has volunteered to be an egg
I have a female friend who has volunteered to be an egg donor so me and my wife can have a baby, as my wife can not produce eggs since she had a hysterectomy many years ago. We would like to get the eggs from the donor, fertilize them with my sperm, then analyze them for genetic defects before they are frozen to later be implanted into a surrogate.I understand that the egg donor will have to get hormonal injections and be monitored closely before the egg extraction. Are there any simpler ways of extracting the eggs? Is it possible to get the eggs naturally when she ovulates or is it a must to get them surgically?
I've been having past year irregular bleeding, mostly when
Hi I've been having for the past year irregular bleeding, mostly when its time for my period. I also thought it happens when I am intimate with my husband. But I notice its not always the case. I first thought he might be hurting something inside that's causing the bleeding. My gynae did some test but said nothing to be concerned about. Anyways now I have athletes foot for the first time now for over two weeks. I only started using the powder few days ago and bought a cream today. But today's problem is that my vagina feels kind of dry and uncomfortable. I scratch my foot a lot. Could I don't know what to think if I am spreading the fungus. I am 43 no kids. Im wondering if anything could be a symptom of early menopause.

So, my girlfriend and I want to have sex, but she doesn't want
So, my girlfriend and I want to have sex, but she doesn't want to get pregnant.So, I tried using the male condom, but she still got pregnant even after using the morning after pill.The problem is that the condom requires me to maintain an erection in order to work and if I lose and erection with the condomit could slip off and she get pregnant. Sometimes I put on the condom without being full erect. Alot of times I don't geterect right away. I put in the condom while being partially erect then I get harder through rubing going in an out.I am wondering if the female condom would be a better sollution since it doesn't require me to be erect. I am wondering ifI should take pills to remain erect so that the condom doesn't come off.My girlfriend as a problem with an ovarian cyst and it seems like the morning after pill messes with her cyst problem.The last time she used the morning after pill she still got pregant. The baby got stuck in the fallopian tube and had tobe surgically removed.I am wondering if there are any solutions to this since the male condom doesn't work unless I remain erect and the morningafter pill doesn't work either and it causes problems with her cyst.
