can familial stress cause me not to have an implantation?


we did inseminations on march 10 and 11. a friend of the family died,and i've had stress central ever since. can stress cause a fertilized egg not to implant? btw, should i start counting from March 10th towards my bfp or the 11th?
----------

Im not sure about stress affecting implantation, although I do know it can put off ovulation.

You should count from the first day of your period when determining cycle length and therefore days past ovulation (for testing) and baby's due date. You dont count from the times you BD.  (+ info)

What is the familial pattern of ADHD?


As in, how does the likelihood of having the disorder change based on whether a family member has it.
----------

Twin studies indicate that the disorder is highly heritable and that genetics are a factor in about 75% of ADHD cases. Hyperactivity also seems to be primarily a genetic condition; however, other causes do have an effect.  (+ info)

is there an alternative treatment for familial polyposis?


My sister died of colorectal cancer 6 years ago, last month her two sons was diagnose with familial polyposis, one of them the biopsy came out as malignant already. The only treatment for this we were told is to removed the colon and be on a colostomy for the rest of their lives, but they are still so young, 29 and 28 years old, no wife nor kids.
----------

You really don't want to screw around with alternative treatments when you son's lives could be at risk, familial polyposis can lead to colon cancer. Once colon cancer metastasize it becomes very difficult to treat. I had an opportunity of taking care of a gentleman who went the alternative route and it was not a good ending.

I Have taken care of young men who had to have this procedure done and thankfully I have not had to see them again (cancer free).

Sorry, I'm not trying to be an a-hole. I work with people who are fighting cancer every day.  (+ info)

Do you teach your child to hate those with familial attraction (commonly ungallantly known as incest)?


Or do you teach them that love is love, and people can't help who they fall in love with?
----------

Well are we talking siblings and parents, or are we talking cousins, distant relatives and later in life step-siblings? The degree of relation is what gets me. I have 2nd and 3rd cousins that I haven't ever met, if I ran into them on the street I'd never know we were related, so how would that be breaking any taboos if I started dating one of them?

Close family is wrong, but what good is hate or preoccupying yourself with being against it? If one party cannot or has not consented, they're not to blame, the one who forced themselves on the other is, and they should be morally despised on par with any other rapist. If it's consensual, it's gross but it's essentially a victimless crime, so I'm not going to get hung up on it.  (+ info)

Is it bad to have familial adenomatous polyposis at the age of 19?


It's bad at any age.  (+ info)

Q's for any 1 got a good information about familial Alzheimer's disease?


my grand father and aunt died with this disease
1_how much is the Percentage of haveing this disease for the girls and boys of my aunt?
2_how much is the Percentage of having this disease for me if my mum pass 65 without having this disease?(how much is the Percentage of having this disease for me from my grad father)
3_is there any early diagnosis for it ? and did it depend on blood sample or what?
----------

I am very interested in Alzheimer's and at 66 I could worry myself silly if I allowed it. My great grandfather, my grandfather, and my daddy all had Alzheimer's. There is a hereditary link to the disease. Researchers are working hard to find out more about it and I just saw on TV that they are developing better ways of catching it early. However, it's one of those things that at this time can't be stopped, can't be cured and is an awful thing. It is harder for the caregiver than for the patient as the person with Alzheimer's loses the ability to think clearly and reason and eventually they aren't even aware they have it. Since there's really no way to prevent it, I have tried to NOT WORRY about it. However, I do take time every day to exercise my brain. I play lots of puzzle games on the net; I do jigsaw puzzles, word games, and read a lot of news articles. I research new and interesting things all the time to keep my thinking skills sharp. I read a lot, crochet from new patterns and try new recipes. I spend time every day with my family and friends. I am writing a book about my life to keep my memory active. All these things help keep my brain active and surely can't hurt. I'm hoping it helps. I am a licensed Alzheimer's caregiver and it's a bit funny that my focus now that I'm disabled is to prevent getting the disease myself.  (+ info)

What does advanced paternal age have to do with non-familial schizophrenia?


[quote]
It is thought that causal factors can initially come together in early neurodevelopment, including during pregnancy, to increase the risk of later developing schizophrenia. One curious finding is that people diagnosed with schizophrenia are more likely to have been born in winter or spring[33] (at least in the northern hemisphere). However, the effect is not large. Some researchers postulate that the correlation is due to viral infections during the third trimester (4-6 months) of pregnancy. There is now significant evidence that prenatal exposure to infections increases the risk for developing schizophrenia later in life, providing additional evidence for a link between in utero developmental pathology and risk of developing the condition.[34]

A study by Sweden's Karolinska Institute and Bristol University in the UK, looked at the medical records of over 700,000 people and calculated that 15.5% of cases of schizophrenia seen in the group may have been due to the patient having a father who was aged over 30 years at their birth, the researchers argue this is due to build up of mutations in the sperm of elder fathers.[23]

Women who were pregnant during the Dutch famine of 1944, where many people were close to starvation, had a higher chance of having a child who would later develop schizophrenia.[35] Similarly, studies of Finnish mothers who were pregnant when they found out that their husbands had been killed during the Winter War of 1939–1940 have shown that their children were much more likely to develop schizophrenia when compared with mothers who found out about their husbands' death after pregnancy,[36] suggesting that even psychological trauma in the mother may have an effect.

How Could A Genetic Disease Be Present In A Baby With No Familial History?


For example, how could a baby inherited Milroy disease, if the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents did not have it?

Can people carry genes for a disease, which lies dormant in them?
How do certain diseases "skip a generation" Why do they?
Are all disease carrying genes the same?
How long does a gene pool live?
(poorly phrased, I know.)
----------

The 1st source below says that Milroy disease is autosomal dominant with variable expressivity. So that means that there are two possibilities. One is that there was a new mutation that only affected the baby (a mutation in the sperm, the egg, or early in the embryo's development). The other is that other blood relatives did have the genetic defect, but for some unknown reason they only had a very mild version of the disease (that is what "variable expressivity" means -- see 2nd source for more on genetics, including your other questions). Of course, there can be errors in people's family histories, too. ;)

Genetic studies may be able to clarify what the situation is in this particular family. Hope this helps.  (+ info)

Strategies to help someone with familial hypercholesterolemia?


besides just lowering the cholesterol intake in one's diet.
----------

I would never take statins. EVER. But maybe nicotinic acid . A form of Vitimin B 3 . And EXERCISE> Nordic walkin' is great.

Description
Nordic walking can be done year round in any climate and anywhere a person of any age or ability might otherwise walk without poles. It combines simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing. The result is a full-body walking workout that can burn significantly more calories without a change in perceived exertion or having to walk faster, due to the incorporation of many large core, and other upper-body muscles which comprise more than 90% of the body's total muscle mass and do work against resistance with each stride. 'Normal walking' utilizes less than 70% of muscle mass with full impact on the joints of the legs and feet.

Nordic Ski Walking produces up to a 46% increase in energy consumption compared to walking without poles.[1]


Benefits
Compared to regular walking, Nordic walking involves applying force to the poles with each stride. Nordic walkers use more of their entire body (with greater intensity) and receive fitness building stimulation not as present in normal walking for the chest, lats, triceps, biceps, shoulder, abdominals, spinal and other core muscles. This extra muscle involvement leads to enhancements over ordinary walking at equal paces such as:

increased overall strength and endurance in the core muscles and the entire upper body
significant increases in heart rate at a given pace
greater ease in climbing hills
burning more calories than in plain walking
improved balance and stability with use of the poles
significant un-weighting of hip, knee and ankle joints
effective weight bearing exercise - creates positive total body bone density-preserving stress
I use plain old wooden sticks, works well>

If I have no cancer in my familial history going back 3-4 generations?


Does that mean my own chances of getting cancer are relatively remote? My predicesors were not healthy-lifestyle types either, they smoked, drank, the whole works.
----------

Oncologists (doctors specializing in cancer) and researchers will tell you that a low incidence of cancer in your family background is preferable in decreasing your chances of developing the illness.

But your chances of developing the illness should by no means be considered remote. Like all people, you have a 25-33% chance of developing it some time within your life. Cancer has been shown to have many contributing factors, only one of which is family history. In considering your family history, you must also take into account the ever-increasing prevalence of carcinogenic materials in the environment that your ancestors didn't have to deal with.

There remains much research to be done about why some individuals and families seem to be more well-insulated against the illness. But until many more concrete answers are known--something which will undoubtedly take many more years--the best measures to reduce your chances of developing cancer are preventative ones, as discussed in the link below.

PS: Several relatives of mine lived long, cancer-free (so far as we know) lives, even though they were life-long smokers and drinkers who exercised little and ate unhealthy diets. However, the quality of their lives were compromised dramatically with other illnesses or serious limitations on activity eventually. Few people can abuse themselves chronically and avoid consequences of some kind, cancer or otherwise. In my book, quality beats quantity by a long shot.
