Gay couples having babies has become the norm… but what about a transgender man who has been given the opportunity to use his own eggs to have a biological baby.

Southern California Reproductive Center Redbook / Southern California Reproductive Center How to Predict When You’re Ovulating February 3, 2017

Have sex, they said. You’ll get pregnant, they said. They were wrong — sort of. Even though you can get knocked up after having unprotected sex just once (thanks for the heads up, sex ed!), timing often plays a huge part in conceiving a baby. After all, your chances of getting pregnant can largely depend on if you’re ovulating. A quick crash course on what ovulation is: It’s when an egg is released from your ovary into your fallopian tubes (it usually happens roughly around the middle of your cycle). There, it can connect with sperm — a meet-up that may result in, boom, a baby! You’re most fertile on the day you’re ovulating, and the 5 days leading up to it. (more…)

It’s always struck me as odd that the dental and medical systems are so separate. Oral health and overall health are closely interlinked, and the mouth is just as much a part of the body as anything else. A commentary in Health Affairs (The Dental-Medical Divide) by Elizabeth A. Mertz, a dental professor at UCSF does a good job of laying out the current state and what to expect going forward. While I learned from the article and agree with many of the conclusions, I do think it’s important that dentistry continue to deviate in some ways from the path followed by the medical profession.
