Human Reproductive BiologyStreaming Video - 2008
For most couples, getting pregnant is an easy matter, but not so for the 15 percent with infertility problems. This highly technical program designed for advanced anatomy courses and health-care practitioners focuses on the processes that lead to normal impregnation, and the physical hindrances that can prevent it. Superb microscopy and computer animation illustrate the processes, and show how reproductive medicine helps infertile couples over biological hurdles. The various fertilization techniques illustrated include synthetic stimulation of hormones, in vitro fertilization, micro-insemination, and test-tube embryo transfer to the womb. How diseases of the uterine lining and OAT syndrome can disrupt impregnation is discussed and illustrated.
