New App Let’s Males Check Their Sperm Count Proving There Truly Is An App For Everything!

(PCM) It has been said many times that there truly is an app for everything and we can certainly agree, especially now that it has been revealed that there is a new app that allows males to check their sperm count. We suppose there is not very much difference between this and the ovulation predictor apps geared towards women.

The app comes from the folks over at Medical Electronic System and is called Yo Home Sperm Test. The company is labeling the app as the world’s first sperm tester to be powered via a smartphone app. Men now have the ability to test their sperm counts from the comfort of home and the company has even created several hilarious how-to-videos to teach men just the way the app and device operate.

Analyzing how fast sperm is moving can be vital to determining fertility, so it is definitely something that men should want to keep an eye on especially if they are in the process of trying to start a family. The company claims that their app also allows men to avoid the awkwardness of going to the clinic to have their sperm count tested several times a month.

The testing process involves the app taking a video of the sperm under the microscope, and then completing a series of simple analyses from the clip. The test takes just two minutes to provide results. The app provides users with in-depth information about their result, which the company claims to be 97 per cent accurate.

Can Playing Techno Beats For Test Tube Babies Really Make Them Bigger? Science Says Yes!

(PCM) Researchers at the Altra-vita IVF clinic in Moscow were stunned to learn that playing a loud and pulsating techno beat for test tube babies appears to have a significant effect on making them grow larger and turn into embryos.

An experiment was conducted by the researchers where a 24-hour loop of techno music was played for eggs in test tubes and the results were astonishing. The eggs became more fertilized and the number of embryos that were usable increased by about a fifth.

The results of the experiment were revealed at the Fertility Conference that was held in Edinburgh where it was explained in layman’s terms that the so-called “techno eggs” were slightly more likely to grow into embryos and a lot more likely to develop to the point that they could be placed into the womb.

Techo music appeared to have a different effect on the test tube eggs than other musical styles that were played. Researchers tried everything from pop and classical to metal, however it was techno tracks that featured a steady pulsating beat that showed the most positive results.

It is thought that the reason behind the results is an effect of the pulsating rhythm mimicking the swirling movements that occur within the womb after a natural conception. It is almost like tricking the egg into thinking it is actually inside the womb therefore increasing the overall effectiveness of the IVF procedure.

26 Women May Have A Major Baby Daddy Mix-Up Thanks To An IVF Mistake

(PCM) What a Dutch IVF treatment facility is calling a “procedural error” may have led to 26 women becoming impregnated with the wrong sperm. Sadly, the clinic reveals that half of these women have either already given birth or are currently pregnant. The major issue is that these women may have given birth to a child who shares a completely different gene pool than their partners.

You may be wondering just how such a major blunder could occur and the answer is even more shocking. It seems that the lab technicians were using a contaminated pipette to inject sperm between April 2015 and and November 2016. The way that Utrech University Medical Centre conducts their IVF treatments is a bit different, as they use a process called Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) where a single sperm is injected directly into a woman’s egg. According to the medical center the lab technicians were using different pipettes, but the same rubber top.

When tested the rubber top revealed traces of sperm meaning that this may have happened 26 times. Another technician reported the incident and the medical center now claims to have the situation under control. While it may be under control for them, what about the 26 women who now have to deal with finding out whether or not their baby daddy is actually their baby daddy. Sounds like a bad episode of “Jerry Springer”!

The medical center is meeting with all the couples who have been affected and are offering up free DNA testing for those that would like to know the truth. Definitely scary stuff, as IVF treatments are a very serious thing for couples looking to have a child and have been unable to conceive the natural way. To think this type of thing could happen is certainly quite unsettling.

Just When You Thought Barbie Has Done It All She Is Now Breastfeeding

(PCM) An Australian doll artist by the name of Betty Strachan has decided to take matters into her own heads when dealing with the social stigma associated with breastfeeding and has created the “Mamas Worldwide Barbie”. The doll features realistic proportions and features and the idea came to her when she was spending time with a group of new mothers and drew a new face on a Barbie doll. It was agreed the the face represented a true embodiment of the group.

Strachan then added on the feature of a latched baby to the dolls breast and we now have the world’s first breastfeeding Barbie. The new doll was incredibly well-received by mothers worldwide and Strachan has completely sold out of the “Mama Worldwide Barbie” in her Etsy store. Her Etsy store also feature various more realistic Barbie doll characters such as the pregnant Barbie which also happens to be another popular item.

Strachan had the following to say about her art and doll collection, “Growing up, it always struck me as odd that there wasn’t as much diversity in the doll world as there could or should be. Not every child is born with blonde hair and blue eyes. Some have freckles, some have gaps in their teeth.”

You can see a few of her amazing designs below:

Men Attempt Birth Control Study And Fail Miserably

male-birth-control

(PCM) You may have heard the news regarding research into a new form of birth control injections that are taken by males rather than females. The new male contraceptive showed a 96% success rate, however a recent study was stopped abruptly when 20 male participants dropped out. The best is the reason why they dropped out!

It seems that they could not handle the side effects of the injection which included acne, mood changes, weight gain and the pain of the injection, you know, all those things women have had to deal with for years!

Apparently, the men in the study could not tough it out and we are sure their wives and girlfriends were completely sympathetic when they came home and explained why! Let’s hope the researchers can find a new group of participates who can actually get through the study without wimping out next time, as a male contraceptive is definitely a breakthrough idea.

Woman Sues Her Parents For Posting Her Embarrassing Baby Photos Online

baby-photo

(PCM) Seriously, people these days will come up with a lawsuit for just about anything! An 18-year old Austrian woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, is suing her own parents for posting embarrassing baby photos of her on Facebook. She claims that over the last seven years her parents have continually posted more than 500 images of her as a baby and refused to take them down even though the woman has requested their removal several times.

It seems she reached her breaking point and made the decision to get the courts involved. Her parents feel that because they took the photos (and you know, she is their daughter and all) that he has the right to post the images. The woman obviously does not feel the same way and says “They knew no shame and no limit—and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot—every stage was photographed and then made public.”

Despite how ridiculous this lawsuit seems the woman’s lawyer feels that she has a good chance of victory over her parents if she can show that the images violated her right to a personal life and her parents could be forced to not only pay for her legal fees, but also her “pain and suffering”. Good grief!  Aren’t parents allowed to be proud of their children. More than likely the photos were only posted in good fun.

Why do we get the feeling that if this case succeeds we are going to be seeing more and more of this type of lawsuit popping up all around the world, as we are sure there are more than a few people out there who have some embarrassing baby pictures taken by their parents that they would rather not share with the world a.k.a. Facebook.
