A PUBLIC HEALTH WARNING: THIS FILM IS INSANE | 11th Jan 2019 @horroronsea
(you've been warned)
I chatted with @moniquebowley
on everything from the first 6 weeks of pregnancy through to month 9. Discussing what to expect and all the ins and outs, tips, tricks and fun stuff.
Head on over to the blog, grab yourself a cuppa and have a listen to the Hello Bump podcasts.
When do you listen to your podcasts? On the train on the way to work or as you go for your morning walk?
Len and Dr John McBain go back a long way. They have been friends and colleagues for over 35 years. John recently retired from the Royal Women's Hospital where he spent many years as Head of IVF and Fertility Services as well as Head of Melbourne IVF. He has had a long and distinguished career and many of our patients have benefited from John's expertise.
Congratulation John from all of us in Suite 101 on your retirement.
How gorgeous, nothing but the best from Dr Andy.
Big Christmas smiles from 7 week old Imogen. Thank you so much for sharing with us @breazy_c
We hope you have an amazing first Christmas Imogen. ❤️🎄
Awesome Austin with mummy Janelle at her postnatal visit 💙
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with about 75% of all cases of anovulatory infertility.
Insulin resistance is frequently associated with PCOS, occurring in 80% of women with PCOS and central obesity, but also in 30–40% of lean women with PCOS. As a result of the reduction in insulin sensitivity, high levels of insulin (hyperinsulinaemia) are invoked as a compensatory mechanism and this is of prime importance in the severity of symptoms of PCOS as hyperinsulinaemia, which is significantly exacerbated by obesity, is a key factor in the production of male hormones from the ovary (hyperandrogenism), the root problem in PCOS.
Weight loss often seems to be an insurmountable object for the obese patient with PCOS and the alternative possibility of using insulin lowering drugs, particularly metformin, is theoretically attractive.
Although metformin as a single agent is capable of improving menstrual frequency and restoring regular ovulation in patients who ovulate infrequently, when used as first line therapy and compared to clomifene (CC), it fairs very poorly. In a large North American randomised controlled trial, CC was found to be superior to metformin as there was a significant difference in the number of clinical pregnancies and live full-term singleton births (22.6% vs 7.2%) using CC and metformin respectively.
Insulin sensitizers should not be used as first-choice agents for induction of ovulation in women with PCOS and their administration does not appear to decrease the incidence of early pregnancy losses. The combination of metformin and CC is no better than CC alone except perhaps in CC resistant patients. Evidence for a possible role for long-term metformin treatment for the prevention of the long-term consequences of PCOS (mainly diabetes and heart disease) is awaited.

One of the things I get asked quite a lot is whether you can boost your fertility through what you eat.
It is a great question and the answer is…
Yes, you can and it is super simple to do.

Congratulations to Chloe and Darren on the birth of their new daughter Allegra who was delivered on 19th October and doing very well at her postnatal visit.

Nobel laureates @drdenismukwege
Denis Mukwege and @nadia_murad_taha
Nadia Murad called on the world to protect victims of wartime sexual violence in their Peace Prize acceptance speeches on Monday, slamming indifference to the plight of women and children in conflict.
Congolese gynaecologist Mukwege, whose work has made him a global expert on rape in conflict, and Yazidi activist Murad, a survivor of IS sexual slavery, both said victims were sometimes valued less than commercial interests.
In an emotional ceremony in Oslo, which saw the laureates cheered and given standing ovations, Mukwege and Murad called on the world to do more.

As summer kicks in, it is important to remember to Slip, Slop Slap.
It goes further than that too – Slide on some sunnies to protect your eyes and Seek shade to reduce UV exposure.
Don’t forget to re-apply too, every 2 hours as recommended by Sunsmart Australia.
Let’s be safe and protect ourselves from skin cancer. Prevention is always better then cure
