I am not bull-shitting but neither is my info 100% accurate. However, I hang around hospitals for a long time and nurses became my buddies. Sometimes, I eavesdropped when I was bored. So, let me share some secret scoop I got.
In-Vitro’ Fertilisation (IVF) involves bringing together and fertilizing the mature egg and sperm outside the body in the laboratory, hence the term “test-tube baby”. The resulting fertilized eggs or embryos are placed into the womb to develop. Thereafter, the pregnancy progress is similar to following normal conception.
Medically, I do not agree to IVF because sometimes, the women are more traumatised when their attempts failed and they had to undergo miscarriages after miscarriages. Sometimes, the babies are born extremely small and premature. We have a triplets here in Penang whom have disabilities due to their prematurity. Cost wise, some families practically had to sell their houses and other properties when these babies are borned with problems because of their lengthy hospital stay. One IVF attempt is about RM30K and there is no guarantee. If a baby has to stay in the hospital for a while, it runs up to RM200K easily. (Vincent expenses was about RM185K) Imagine tripling the RM200K?
So, don’t flame me if my views are rather opinionated and biased about IVF because I had seen the heartaches and the agonies. Of course, there are many successful stories too.
First, will you donate your sperms? Will you donate your eggs?
Secondly, when I am talking about IVF here, I am referring to cases where one of the partner cannot have the baby. It is either the man has problems or the woman’s ovaries are damaged.
So, the solution is to take the sperm and the eggs (regardless of the sources), fertilise them in a petri dish and then, when they form into embryos, the doctor will put the embroys into the woman’s womb. Usually, he will take three embryos for implantation. This is to increase the chances. Sometimes, out of three, only one survives. Sometimes, all three successfully implanted and the mother will be asked if she wants one, two or all three babies.
Have one or two is safer and better chances for her to carry through the pregnancy. If she wants only one, two of them will be taken out.
Now, where do you think the sperms come from? Or the eggs? As a man, will you go donate your sperms in sperms bank?
So, what I had the privilege to sneak peek is this…..
Doctor asks for sperm from his contacts. He will of course, find the same race. Sperms have to be freshly taken. I.e within a few hours. Egg is less of a problem because doctor can take some extra from those women and freeze them, I suppose.
Sometimes, I heard that he will take those extra sperms from those couples whom had consulted him. I guess the couples must have given their approval in some tiny, little fine prints.
So, can you envision two women, one with egg problem, the other with sperm problem. The eggs and sperm switched, both women get pregnant. They had babies but unaware that 50% is hers/his? I hope this is not true too. But hey, I heard this with my own ears from UN-trusted sources. I see with my own eyes how bunches of triplets are born at almost around the same time.
Therefore, if these children grow up, met each other, fall in love, marry and ??????.
Like I said, I am sharing what I have eavesdropped and heard from UN-reliable sources. This may not be true but it is worth a thought. So, guys, will you do so for humanity sake? Please comment with care, ya? Otherwise, comments will be moderated. Sperms donation, anyone?
