Do you know how much it costs to feed a child until he is 18 years old and able to live on his own? There are 365 days in a year, which means 6570 days in 18 years.
During these days, in addition to providing the child with basic food and clothing, he also needs to meet his material needs. Plus 18 years of compulsory education fees, pocket money, etc., you don’t need to do any math to know that it is definitely a huge sum of money.
The question is, even if everyone knows that raising children is so expensive, why does the global population rise instead of falling, and even hit a new high of 8 billion?
In order to get life into the world, we risk our lives and swim forward. However, the door to fertility is sometimes locked, leaving you with no way to enter. At this time you will understand that hard work alone is useless, and luck is also an important part of “adulthood”.
To stand out from hundreds of millions of compatriots, to successfully combine with an egg to become an embryo and then to be born, laymen call it luck, experts call it chance.
Dr. Lin Leijun laughed and said that human beings are very inefficient when it comes to childbirth. There is only a 15% chance of winning a prize during sex without protective measures. On the other hand, animals such as rabbits can give birth to a dozen babies a year, and insects lay eggs in millions.
She pointed out: “Although the chance of winning a lottery is slim, if you look at it for a year, the chance has increased a lot. Lin Leijun revealed that within one year of marriage, as long as couples have normal sex, up to 84% of them can conceive a baby. The second year The probability has increased to 92%!”
“What if it’s two years later? What will the odds be?”
Dr. Lin admitted that it will decrease year by year, but the prerequisite for pregnancy is that a healthy egg meets a healthy and energetic sperm and implants in a healthy uterus, so take good care of your body and maintain a healthy lifestyle. “You especially need to quit smoking.” , Lin Leijun repeatedly urged couples who want to have children and are preparing for pregnancy.
The process of preparing for pregnancy cannot be rushed
Modern personnel require efficiency in everything, and everything must be done quickly and accurately. However, there is no express train when it comes to childbirth. It needs to be done slowly and step by step.
Lin Leijun pointed out: “Many couples who come for consultation have this idea. I have paid the money, but you told me that the chance of conceiving a baby may be 50%?”
As a professional doctor, Lin Leijun never cares about numbers. She reminds the public that they must understand that nothing in this world is 100%, let alone when it comes to pregnancy.
Moreover, many couples who come for consultation have exceeded or are hovering in the golden age of childbearing, so the success rate will naturally be lowered.
She revealed: “Compared to men, women really don’t have many years to waste, because the number of eggs a woman has is fixed when she is born. As she gets older, her natural fertility will also decrease.”
“A 35-year-old woman has 35-year-old eggs, but male sperm does not ‘age’ with age. It does not mean that men’s fertility will not be affected by age, but it is a bit disproportionate compared to women.”
The most ideal childbearing age for women is under 35 years old, when both egg quantity and quality are in the golden period of childbearing.
Modern technology aids fertility
Lin Leijun emphasized that age is not the only criterion for judging infertility, and that the reproductive function is not completely lost after missing the golden childbearing age. Here are some common factors that affect pregnancy.
Men: semen testing (sperm quantity and activity), whether sexual function is normal (whether you are facing premature ejaculation, inability to have an erection, etc.)
Women: age, egg quality, ovarian health, ability to ovulate, whether you have gynecological problems such as endometriosis, fibroids or blocked fallopian tubes, etc.
But if a couple is unable to conceive a baby naturally, there are still techniques that can be used to increase the chance of conception.
Lin Leijun mentioned, such as in vitro fertilization or in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), morphologically selected sperm cytoplasmic microinjection (IMSI), and preimplantation genetic screening. (PGT-A), preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGT-M), ovarian tissue freezing (OTC), genetic screening and non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPT), etc., to help patients give birth to healthy babies.
She said: “Reproductive treatment technology can not only solve fertility problems, but also detect the diagnosis of so-called unexplained infertility. It can help doctors take a big step forward in this incompletely transparent fertility science.”
Lin Leijun reminded that when problems are discovered, you should seek help from experts as soon as possible. Time will only move forward, and the longer it is delayed, the more detrimental it will be to women’s fertility.
Instead of asking Guanyin to send a child, it is better to consult an expert.
